    Does it detect other devices?? Did you try other USB devices before calling the quits?

My ibm r50e usb ports are not wrkng pls smebdy hlp me?


When you say they are not working...
Is there power to the ports (when you plug something into them does the activity light on the device come on?
Are the defective ports the primary ones attached to the motherboard or expansion ports on the front of the case?
Is it a windows o/s failing to recognise them?

If the primary ports on the back of the PC aren't working try deleting all USB branches in the device manager on your windows PC and reboot - they should all reinstall automatically...if they don't your m/b is probably defective.

If they are expansion ports check the main ports on the back of the PC.

It is possible to kill a m/b by plugging daft stuff like fans/lights and remote control missile launchers into your USB ports :-)

I get disk read error when I try to boot it up.


hi there, here are possible solutions to your issue

1. make sure first that your computer would be able to identify your harddrive. you can check this one by going to the setup utility page. upon pushing the power button quickly tap the F1 key or F2 key. then check your Harddrive if motherboard was able to detect it.

2. make sure that there is now usb flash drive or external drive attached to your usb ports when booting up your computer. sometimes if you have this devices attached to your usb this error happens when booting up.

3. Power on the computer and keep on tapping F8 key the moment you push the power button. select safe mode once oyu enter the black screen. if same error occured. then, ou need to use the recovery disk that came with the system and restore the computer back to original factory settings.

Here is what you can do to refresh the USB ports:

3. Select HARDWARE
4. Select DEVICE MANAGER
5. Select UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects
THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB drive

Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it

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.

Asus P4P800-X USB Problem


Maybe your USB port on your computer is model 1.0 while the hard drive is a 2.0. That would cause it not to read it. Check your system information and see what model your USB ports are.
