Question about Computers & Internet
I have 4 ports on my laptop - I had 3 items plugged into the USB ports - when I added a 4th - POOF - nothing from any of them. I have tried to remove the drivers - reboot and "find new hardware" but that isn't working... what else can I do - or is there a "trick" in the previous I don't know about... THANKS
Difficult to diagnose...do not know of a "trick"...although one solution is to get a PCMCIA card (they are getting very inexpensive now) that has 2 USB ports...you can add a USB hub from one of them to again have 4 or more ports.

I kind of have the same problem. My desktop has eight USB ports, and at first they all worked fine, but now they're failing one by one. o.O Ack!
