Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
Hi, I have an Acer Tracelmate 3201XCi and all of the usb's have gone off. I tried plugging in a memory stick and a power surge notice came up. Since then none of the usb sockets work. They still have power going to them as a small usb hoover works fine. Things I have tried so far:
I have reset the bios
I have re-installed Windows XP
I have Unistalled / reinstalled the USB Universal Host Controllers and updated them
I have unistalled / re-installed the USB hubs and updated them
I purchased a PCMCIA card with 4 USB slots on it. (When I put it into the PCMCIA slot the computer freezes until I remove it then the laptop goes OK again - It does try to install but freezes half way through the plug & play setup.)
I have also updated the chiset drivers from the Acer Site
I have tried the memory stick in other laptops and it works fine.
In Device manager the USB's are reported as working and all are enabled. In the USB hub properties however under the 'Power' tab I have a description of "2 Ports available" and "power Reqd" = 0mA - is this correct?
Please help as I'm pulling my hair out.

This may help - or not..
If you have damaged the USB chip on the motherboard, you may be able to disable it in the BIOS. Then when you install your PCMCIA card it may work...
USB is not as tolerant of short circuits as RS232. I know I managed to destroy one of the ports on my m/b.! Using a Hoover may not be a good idea.
