    This sounds like a common problem I have run across several times, but to be sure, I would like to know all your drive letters currently in use on your laptop (IE c: hardrive, d: cdrom, e: network drive (if applicable)) before I will even suggest the fix for this problem, as this case may not be what I am currently thinking.

First of all, we are NOT hackers. Don't know where you got that idea, but I myself find it rather repulsive. The problem may lie in the fact your computer may be mapping your USB PenDrive the same as another drive on your computer, making it inaccessable. Now, I requested more information so that I could better assist, but you failed to provide what I asked for. To find out if your computer is dual-mapping a drive letter, you need to access Control Panels -> Adminstrative Tools -> Computer Management, and select the Disk Management at the bottom. You should be able to find the PenDrive in the Bottom Right pane, right click it, select 'Chage Drive Letter' and select an unused drive letter (perhaps M:). If that is the problem, that right there will fix it for you.

Try not to insult people next time.

Click on start, control panel, then double click system
Next click on the hardware table, then device manager
Click on the + next to the Universal Serial Bus controller
Click on USB Root Hub and press the Delete key (remove all USB Root Hubs then restart you computer
Once it comes back up try the USB drive again.
If this does not work then I would then check out the ACER website for laptop drives

Try re-installing the system drivers, go to the Acer Website and do a search for its drivers. Download the mainboard drivers or any drivers that may have been updated and install them and see if that doesnt get it fized. Sometimes the drivers get messed up and need to be re-installed.

Hi check your pndrive is ok or not try another pendrive or usb device to confirm that your laptop works fine if not that check for your usb drivers, goto my computer ->select my computer -> right click->properties->hardware->device manager-> check for universal serial bus controller if there is any yellow symbol or red cross mark on that that your usb port is not working check for proper drivers else your usb port on the motherboard is faulty you can't solve yourself goto to your nearest service center i hope this information help you.

My girlfriend inserted a USB plug in upside down and damaged one of my ports, well the other port worked after that until it just suddenly stopped. Now I have old USB ports I can put in myself, I was just...

No, there are no failsafes in place. Just be very cautious, as soldering onto a motherboard, especially a laptop, is not recommended.

If there are ANY working USB sockets, then I would recommend using a USB hub, rather than replacing damaged ones (also, the damage may have caused problems with other components, so replacing the damaged sockets may not work).

I just need to know where the printer USB is for Dell inspiron 1545? I know it seems a stupid question but I am frustrated and need to use printer.

If you're confused where to connect the printer, you can connect your USB printer into ANY working USB ports of the computer.

Make sure that the printer driver is installed correctly.

Please let me know if you have more questions

Have a great day!

It sounds like your usb port is damaged. Look in the port and see if there is any visible damage. Also, check the usb cord for the iphone and see if it is damaged.

Hi there. I see you are having a problem with your USB port for windows Vista. try going to your computer manufacturer website and look up your laptop series for driver downloads. What brand is the laptop? I have a IBM/lenovo ThinkPad T40 with Windows Vista on it and my USB ports work fine. Also how old is your laptop? Because it may have USB 1.0 and not 2.0. Mine is 2.0 and works fine in Vista.

USB not working

1. Start Device Manager.
2. On the Action menu, click Scan for New Hardware.
If this does not resolve the issue, you have to restart the computer. In some cases you must use Device Manager to disable then re-enable the device to get it to recover from this unresponsive condition

if its phyiscally damaged
you can just by a pci usb card for pretty cheap and just have more ports

ISB Port

You mean, USB. USB's have 5.0 volts power supply with current limit and protection. this means that up to certain extent, if you encounter a short circuit from the USB device, the port is well protected. However there will be instances when a defective USB device is plugged in the port will damage the port. There is most probably a small PCB mounted fuse that needs to be replaced. This will be difficult to find and should be sent to a qualified service center. On the other hand, you can buy a PCMCIA (cardbus) USB adaptor for less than $30 and you will have 2 or even 4 ports in your machine.
