Question about Compaq Presario V2401CL Notebook
My USB ports are dead (per say). Power goes through them but any device I plug in is unrecognized. Worst, my Presario freezes (locks up) when I insert a Flash drive. I've tried about 25 different solutions posted over 40 forum websites and no joy. Device Manager lives in Nirvana because it always tells me that my ports are OK. I need to know if my particular problem has been seen before. Further, I'm talking about ANY USB device so it is not an issue with a camera or an MP3 player or mouse/keyboard combo. I have flashed my Bios twice and loaded the latest chip drivers and updates and still no Joy. One solution is to toggle the Legacy/High Speed selection in the Bios but guess what folks, my award/Phoenix bios doesn't even have a section on USB devices (?????). I need to see if there's a solution before I re-load Winders' or dish out coin on a new motherboard.

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.
