Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Two out of three usb ports will not recognize anything I plug in. I have an ACER Aspire 5100 laptop.
Are you using XP? If so:
Here is what you can do to refresh the USB ports:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
2. Select PROPERTIES
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 device.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
