Compaq Presario Desktop USB Problem

My USB ports on the front main board and on the rear of the machine have stopped working/ powered. I have removed all the usb ports in the device manager and restarted my computer to no avail. What should I do? Have they burned out from a serge? How can I tell?

Usb port were working, just stopped. Get error message device not recognized on all plugged into usb port.

solution has worked for
some people with problematic USB and General Devices:

1. Locate the file INFCACHE.1 in C:\Windows\inf

2. Right click on the INFCACHE.1 file, select Properties >Security > Edit,
and give your account full control.

3. Delete INFCACHE.1 (Or just to be safe, rename it to INFCACHE.1.BAK or
temporarily move to your desktop but you shouldn't need to, windows doesn't
need that file to run, and if it needs to it recreates it).

HP Compaq Presario V6030 usb ports don't work, is this something I can fix with drivers or can they be replaced.

First try these steps
1.Remove all the usb devices connected, then go to device manager and under Universal Serial Bus controlers uninstall all the usb root hub and then restart the computer
2. If it still doesnt work do a bios update from for your notebook and then restart and do a bios default too.
3. If these steps doesnt resolve the problem do a recovery and even after recovery the NBs usb ports doesnt work then mother board needs to be replaced as the usb ports are fixed in it.

Have you tried checking your BIOS? Pls make sure that the on board USB setting are enabled...this should fall under the integrated peripherals...

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Notebook PC. For some reason it shuts down without warning. What can cause it to do that?


Your going to need to clean the fan/heatsink assembly..

On the cq60, this means complete disassembly of all parts and order to get to the fan properly, the motherboard will need to be removed..

Remove All screws on the underside of Laptop, Remove Covers..(hard drive,RAM,Wifi).. Pull Out CDrom....Remove the 3 screws from cdrom area.....Flip Over.. Open Screen, Pull Media Strip (above Keyboard) Away from Laptop... Be carefull Here, There are Fragile ribbon cables attached to this on the left underside ..
Now Unscrew Keyboard Screws And Pull Keyboard away, THere's a ribbon cable here too attached to the motherboard,, Unlock the ribbon cable at the motherboard port(tab on each side pulls forward).. Remove Palmrest Screws.. Pull the Wifi Cables through the Motherboard upperside, Detach any plug/wires... Unscrew Screen Hinge Posts and pull screen away... Remove the 1 screw holding the rear strip of plastic---unsnap the plastic strip at back end of palmrest area... Pull palmrest away... Unscrew The Media Card Bay and the CDrom Port Board(left side)....
Remove the 2 motherboard screws on the bottom left side front...
Unplug the long cable port on the front underside of motherboard right in the middle....
Lift up the motherboard slightly.. pulling it up from the left rear side..... You will see the DC Jack Power Cable Right There Under The Motherboard... This Needs To Be Unplugged...--Pull The Motherboard Up About 2 inches and reach under to unplug the DC Jack Wire Port Plug...and the usb plug wire...

Now continue to remove motherboard
Flip Over And Remove Heatsink Fan Assembly... Unplug Fan... Disassemble Fan And Clean FAn And Heatsink Fins...

Does 1 Usb port work on your computer? Sometimes they can go out. Do you have a USB hub you can use?

Compaq Presario v2000 w/ dead USB ports

I have the same problem with my Compaq Presario V2000. Lost both USB ports and HP tells me that the motherboard has to be replaced at $300 +..I searched and found a PCMCIA card with two USB ports for $10. No problems with the USB ports on this card..great and cheap solution.
My belief is that the compaq usb ports do not have power limiting circuitry therefore allowing you to overload the output power on the ports. My ports failed after I downloaded into a burglar alarm system I was programming.

Dead USB Ports...

Have you checked drivers not only for the usb, but for the chipset of the system itself. Also, have you installed service pack 2?

Might also just visually inspect for troublesome fingers in the ports themselves; often get bent and short out.

Good luck
