Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook
Okay so let me start off by saying that I'm not very computer savvy. I know the basics of handling a computer but all the fancy names go over my head. Which means that I'll need your help in "dumbing it down" to my level with step-by-step instructions.
With that said, here's the problem:
Awhile ago I bought my Acer Aspire 5050 and it was working fine. Now, for some reason most of my USB ports aren't working. Out of the blue they stopped recognizing my devices and the ones that they did recognize only charged and did nothing else. I tried uninstalling them by means of the control panel, but that only made the situation worse because the two ports that were working aren't working anymore. When I restarted the computer it said it found the driver software for it, but it encountered a problem while trying to install and couldn't continue.
I just need to know what to download or anything else to do to get my ports working again because without them my laptop is utterly useless to me.
Can you please help? Thanks.
