The Folowing soultion is for Windows XP operating system

Unfortunately there are MANY reasons why a USB controller stops working. The 1st place I wwould look is in the Device manager.

Go to your start button ~~> Control panel ~~> double click system ~~> Select Hardware tab ~~select device manager button and look for universal serial bs controllers toward bottom of list ...
If it is expanded then you have an issue a yellow ! icon means there is a driver error a red X means that it is disabled

to fix the yellow ! double click the problem driver or controller reinstall the usb driver

to fix a red X right click the problem driver or controller with the mark and select enable

Best of luck with the issue

if all else fails you always have the option of purchasing A USB PCI card that can be added into one of your internal available PCI slots.

You could easily pick up an aftermarket USB PCI card, which will give you 2-4 USB ports that have their own logic chip. These are quite easy to install and very inexpensive.
Another option would be a front-mounted USB hub, which would attach to the USB header on your mainboard. They come in 3.5" size (to go in a floppy drive slot) or 5.25" for CD/DVD size slots.
Either of these should work fine as long as the rest of the PC is OK. If not, they are pretty much universal, so you could put in your next computer. (if it didn't work).
Good luck!

Ibm not boot from usb


When the system starts up there is usually a key to hit for SETUP, usually ESC, F1, F4, or DEL

Find it, and hit it at the right time.

You will enter the CMOS or BIOS setup.

Once there, locate the BOOT SEQUENCE section and allow a USB boot or external component Boot to be placed int he sequence it it MIGHT work.

Not sure what you're trying to boot from USB for.

My USB ports suddenly quit working on my IBM Z Pro 6221 59U


Check the actual ports, visual inspection. Look for consistancy of the pins, and guide. If one is bent or missing, that can short out the ports, or blow out the integrated circuit.

If you are using a usb keyboard, try to start up and go into the setup using the keyboard. If you can, the driver for the ports might be damaged, causing the problem in windows, but not in the bios startup.

You can purchase a usb board that can give you new ports, and deleting the usb hub from the hardware manager (check help) and re-detecting the device might repair a damaged driver.

Usb not found aspire t160


Hi,

i,d check the bios setup. to ensure that USB devices are enabled.
Or that there are no conflicting devices:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager.
Also some motherboards, have jumpers to set the USB ports on/off.
Try using a different port if you have 1 available, or purchase an individual PCI-Card with USB Ports On.

Mike @ Compurepair.
