Re: usb ports don't work

On both the compaq laptops owned by my daughters, one or more USB ports have gone dead. The fix has required dissassembly of the unit and really careful resoldering of the pins from the USB ports to the motherboard. It apparently takes very little torque on the USB connector to break the solder joints and as my daughters tend to use their laptops in a manners that stress the connectors ( on the couch or bed for example) the internal connectors just plain break. Cheap *****if you ask me.

Reinstall your USB drivers:
Navigate to Device manager, find a branch named "USB Controllers" or similar
Right click the one thats the problem (or all of them if you dont know which), select Uninstall
Reboot your machine and windows will autodetect the USBs and reinstall their drivers.

I have an Acer Aspire 5253/BZ815 that is only 7 months old. 2 of 3 USB ports don't work, webcam stopped working and sound is going out. How do I get these things fixed?

From your description the motherboard is failing or windows device drivers are corrupted, if it is the device drivers you can attempt a system recovery from the hard drive or DVD disc which will reset everything back to factory default with a fresh install of windows. But if you find there is no change your manual should list aurthorized service centre's closest to you, or go online for customer and technical support.

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.

The usb port won't work on my acer extensa 4630z laptop

Did you install any Anti virus . Check the USB port for any physical damage. Try connecting a mouse with USB port to check if its working. After all this then the issue remain the same then the USB port needs an replacement.

All usb ports stoped working

.There are a lot of virus' that will disable your USB ports. You can change the settings in the registry to enable them again.

Open registry (START > RUN> type regedit) and navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet \Services\UsbStor

Now in the right pane, double-click Start and type 3 in the Value data box (Hexadecimal) and quite the registry editor.

Acer Aspire 5050-5430 USB ports stopped working

I hope i can help resolve your problem for you.
this may be a problem relating to your system device driver files.
Try This:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager. at the bottom of the page you will see USB.
If you have any yellow symbols ( exclamation Marks ) then the driver has been corrupted, or installed incorrectly.
if you have a system restore disk. this may solve the problem for you. or recovery cd.
If you require further assistance, please ask.

USB ports not working Acer Aspire laptop

Two solutions would be to either restore your pc to before the problem started,using system restore on accesories menu, or use the recovery cd or the recovery folder Acer laptops usually have on the 'D' drive and re-install usb controllers and drivers.
