Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

USB ports I have 7215 HP slimline media player desktop computer. My USB ports and I have 5 in the back and one in the front do not work. they  were working before I had my printer hooked up and my kids were using it to download music to there ZUNE player. It just stop working and I think the drivers need to updated? My computer is only 1 year old, do I have replace the USB card, but the one that is front of computer does not work either. I reinstalled the the drivers using the device manager, but nothing. I go to HP site, and there I guess I am asking what is the procedure. My media card players in the front I have 3 do not work either, is there something turned off that I do not know about? I have looked everywhere from my BIOS to working with the device manager but nothing works, I am hoping somebody is had the same problem, thanks.

Re: USB ports

Did you try deleting or uninstalling all the USB device drivers, then reinstalling them? They should be auto-detected after you remove them. If not, reboot and then they will.

Re: USB ports

If usb devices will not work and windows just says can not find software after it trys to load it, then maybe your windows/inf/infcache.1 file is corrupt. delete it and all is well. when this happened to me, some usb devices still worked and some not.

Keyboard, mouse, front USBs,DVD recorder not working

It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.
