Question about Gateway M320CS Notebook
This was not due to a storm or power outage like many others I have read about. My computer is three years old, it is a Gateway GT5028 and has seven USB ports. All of which are no longer to register: digital camera, printer, external harddrive, iPod, so on. BUT the speakers that came with the computer are still up and running fine. [knock on wood]
I have tried these few solutions:
Uninstalling and Reinstalling the drivers
The PC has been shut down and turned on many times [this matter has been since one month ago]
All of the instructions from the Microsoft Solutions page
My warranty is expired
My device manager detects no problems/changes/updates
The local PC shop is $50 an hour
So, any other suggestions on how to fix this incredibly odd problem, let me know.
My next step is to re-format my harddrive myself and see if maybe it will bring them back.
Here's what I'd do:
Check your bios settings
Run a Live Linux cd lik Ubuntu or Knoppix
Update bios firmware
If you try all three and you get the same results then the problem is definitely hardware related.
If it was hardware related then I'd try removing all the pci cards hooked into the motherboard / clear cmos.
If it's software related then back up your files and reinstall the operating system.
Let me know if you need any additional details. I respond to my requests.
Best of luck!
