Try going into control panel and then system and the hardware and then device manager look for the usb ports and delete them, then reboot the system ,they should be there.

Usb not working


This could be a problem with your USB drivers. Check through the device manager to see if all the USB ports drivers are installed. If not, re-install the USB drivers. This will solve your problems.

My Transcend 500GB is not working on my Dell Inspiron 1464 Windows 7 Home Basic But other USB devices like pendrive etc works fine. Also My Transcend 500 GB works fine on other machine has Windows 7...


The chances are that the portable drive is drawing more current fom the USB port then the port can supply. The current limitations on the USB ports are controlled electronically and if anything is connectedthat attempts to draw more power then the port can safely supply, the port is shut down.
You may have to use a USB power injector which you plug into the laptop and then plug the drive into that.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 computer and a Dell Photo AIO printer 966. Recently I could not get my computer to print on the printer. It had worked up to this point. I uninstalled the printer driver and...


First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

I have 3 USB ports on my Dell Inspiron B130, and they are all broken. It seems they are broken somewhere inside the computer - stuff plugs in, but doesn't register on the computer. How much would it cost...


3 ports all defective sounds like they may have been disabled . Have you checked your bios?Dell is going to tell you you need a very expensive mo0therboard replacement and will try to sell you another computer. You are better off checking your drivers. Go into the control panel /system/hardware/device manager and see what you have going onwith your USB controllers.
Reinstall the drivers or update them, I can't see three ports suddenly becoming defective physically.

Inspiron B130 No Show on Devices


The USB ports are controlled in BIOS. When you start up your computer you should see something like "hit F12 for system"..once in BIOS arrow to the ports area and you will see USB ports and make sure they are turned on. Also, check in Device Manager, see if your USB ports are showing. If all looks well then the individual port is corrupted and will have to be replaced.

USB ports quit working


I had this happened to me also. you need to check the system bios to see if something shut the USB ports off. normally hitting DEL or f10 prior to bootup will put you in the system BIOS. Normally all usb ports disable because a device was unplugged without properly shuting the device off.
