Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS742/W Notebook
Computer was non functioning, so I formatted and reinstalled Windows XP Home, Have Motherboard MS-6741, couldn't get onboard video to work so installed another video card, but the usb ports will not work also. Do you think it's a motherboard malfunction, or is there something I can try for the USB?
I suspect that your onboard video is conflicting with the video card. Remove the card to see if the USB problem is resolved. If resolved, reinsert the video card and go to Control Panel - System - Device Manager and disable onboard video.

Tips for a great answer:
Oct 05, 2013 | Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex Hard Drive
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
