    i have windows xp media on the gateway. not vista. i did all that you suggested in the system and it still did not work. I know it had to be someone simple "LOL" but very frustrating.

  • Carole Mar 04, 2008

    I do have xp, one thing i remembered was that at some point one of the "gru" use my computer to do something and they used a bluetooth adapter. I am going to try this weekend to check the bios, (however you do that) I know it has to be something simple (lol) cause it works great just no USB It is a gt4023 which has xpmedia on it if that helps. It is one of my work computers that they want me to dump and I just cant too much wonderful memories in it. Thanks for all the help. I have enjoyed this site.

    thanks for the help. I checked the bios that was not it. so I decided to try and reinstall using the gateway recover disk. Well that did not work either. So I guess It is a motherboard problem. Just simply blows my mind that it works great except for the usb on the front and rear. I have everything I want but USB. Go figure.

    where you able to use other usb device on your USB port?



    Please tell me the exact model of your computer, it is also possible that the usb ports were disable on your computer bios.



    If you are not familiar with the BIOS, I suggest that you contact gateway support on how to access it and how to enable the usb on your computer.

Eistot. Let me guess. You operating system is Vista. This is a common problem for Vista users. Open control panel, open system, click the hardware tab, click the device manager button.
Scroll down to your devices that have a yellow ! point. Right click once on a device & left click update. Windows hardware update wizard will open, click not at this time & click next. Click install from a list or specific loacation. Click the brows button & than next. Point windows to C:\windows\system32 & choose to look in sub folders too. Windows should find your USB devices again.
If windows fails this endeavor please just post back here with your results so I can suggest another rout.

Good Luck & kind Regards eistot

W 7
First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".

Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.
for XP or earlier
Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
Check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts Check if USB Ports Are Damaged

USB ports are an important part of your computer's hardware.
Many devices connect to the computer via USB, such as music players, cell phones and digital cameras.
This connection lets you charge your devices and manage files on them.
When you connect a device to a USB port, it is typically recognized automatically.
If not, there may be a problem with the port. USB ports sometimes fail on their own, or they may be damaged by force.

Plug a variety of devices into the USB port you think is damaged.
If none of them work, the port is probably broken.
Connect the same devices to the USB ports on a different computer.
If they work, this is another indication your ports may be damaged.
Run Windows Update on your computer to ensure your devices and computer function together and have the latest drivers.
Click "Start," then type "Update" in the search bar.
Click on "Windows Update," "Check for Updates" and "Install Updates."

Open the Windows Device Manager by clicking "Start," then typing "device manager" into the search bar.
Click the Device Manager link when it appears.
Click on each of your USB ports.
In the Properties window, look for "This device is working properly."
If this is displayed for each USB port, they are not damaged, but there may be a problem with your device instead.
Click "Update Driver" next to each USB port in the Device Manager, and Windows searches for and installs the latest driver.
If one can't be found, go to your computer manufacturer's website, and download the driver there. Try to use the USB port again.
Sometimes, outdated or damaged drivers result in a non-working USB port.

Open your computer case by unscrewing or sliding off the side cover.
Use a can of compressed air to clean out the dust from inside, especially from within the USB ports.
If your USB ports are hooked up to the motherboard, remove the cable, then replace it.
These actions sometimes help to fix non-working ports.

Problem with usb port don`t work


Step 1
Before you start working on the USB port, make sure that your device is not the problem. If the computer says that the there is a new USB device but that it cannot use it, typically there is a problem with the device's driver and not the USB port. If this is the case, your best option is to re-install or upgrade the device driver. Try inserting the device to another computer. If the device works, most likely the problem is with the computer and not your device.

Step 2
Try rebooting the machine. Rebooting a computer resets all of the software to the default state and will clean up many issues. The start up process also checks all of the devices on the computer and can sometimes fix a USB port. First shut down the machine. Connect the USB device up to the computer and start it. This reboot will sometimes fix a bad USB port.

Step 3
Try attaching the USB device on to another USB port on the same computer. If the device now works, the old USB port probably has a hardware or BIOS issue. Skip to step 5 to try to fix a bad USB port through the BIOS. Fixing a hardware problem on a USB port requires working on the motherboard which is typically more expensive just adding a new USB ports.

Step 4
Uninstall your computer's USB device bus manager. The device manager controls the USB access and sometimes gets corrupted. Fixing the USB device manager requires administrator rights on the machine. The best way to uninstall the device bus manager is to right click on your computer's icon and select properties. This will bring up the hardware settings for your machine. Click on the hardware tab and select the device manager. The device manager lists all of the devices on the computer. The next step is to open up the "Universal bus controller" option. Right click on all of the items under this option and uninstall them. Once all of the devices have been removed, restart the machine with the USB device connected. Upon reboot, windows re-installs the USB device manager. Most of the time, this will fix the USB port.

Step 5
The next thing to try is to check the BIOS. Restart the machine and enter the BIOS setup screen. You should check to make sure all of the USB ports are active. If they are, you should try resetting the BIOS settings to the defaults. The BIOS reset will sometimes fix USB port. But if it does not you will have to consider upgrading the BIOS. Upgrading a computer BIOS is very dependent on the motherboard manufacturer and you will have to visit your computer manufacturer's web site for detailed instructions.

Step 6
The last trick to try to fix a USB port is to repair your OS. Sometimes the USB drivers can get corrupted and break the USB ports. You can reinstall the system files onto the computer which should fix the USB port. Your data files should not be changed in this process, but it is a good idea to do a full backup of the computer ahead of time. In windows, an OS re-install is done by loading up the windows installation CD/DVD and selecting the repair windows installation. Just follow the steps and you often have a fixed USB port at the end of the process.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

I have 4 usb ports 1.0 I am not able to download


The port in the PC needs to be USB 2.0 standard.

A quick analogy. Think of a tap with 1/2" outlet, and you connect an adapter and a 1" hose to it. It will work, but you will not get more water just because you attached a thicker hose; the original outlet has to have higher diameter to give you more water.

If all your USB ports are 1.0 version, the only option is to purchase an USB 2.0 PCI card mounted inside the computer - this will give you 2 or 4 (depending on card model) USB 2.0 outlets.

Please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

Damaged USB Port


Ok I think the best method to "Fix" this would be to get your self a 4 - 5 port USB card, they are, real cheap, insert it into a spare slot, inside your PC, and install the drivers, if any, and use that one. And simply ignore the other one all together.

Gateway USB ports stopped working


So maybe you need to install the drivers for the USB device you are trying to connect. Also, with the computer off, try cleaning all USB ports and plugs. You can buy electrical cleaner in a spray can at Radio Shack. Let it dry thoroughly before powering up. But to me it sounds like a driver problem. Unless maybe your USB BUS is going bad.
