My usb ports are not working
Posted by Anonymous on
Most USB ports are on by default.
If you are using a USB mouse / keyboard and they both work.
Your USB ports are working.
If somehow these were turned off, it is most likely in the bios.
Reboot and go into the bios screen. F2 or the Delete key are the most common keys. Usually the monitor will flash these one of these quickly during the boot up process. Hold down the appropriate key till the bios screen opens. Navigate to the USB section and be careful not to change anything else. Wrong setting here and the machine may not boot up. Check to make sure the USB is on Auto, enabled or whatever the bios is for enabling the usb ports. You may have more than one selection. you can experiment a little here. Just note what you select and under which category should you have to return and make another selection.
If your using a Windows machine you may have to reload or update the USB drivers. Slimdrivers is a good update utility found here >>

You can update other areas but for now just focus on the USB drivers.
It is not a good idea to update everything at once and then wonder what happened if something goes horribly wrong. :)
Good luck and hope this helps
