    My Acer is Aspire 3100, and whenever I plug an external drive, mouse, or anything else in any USB port the computer hangs/freezes. The only way to restart it is powering down by power button (4 secs). OS is WinXP Pro SP3. Thanks for any hint/suggestion.

You didn't say which Operating System you are using. Without knowing the OS, Service Pack,or NorthBridge Chip set, this would be hard to fix.

If the System is XP, XP Pro with SP1 or SP2 I would Suggest Upgrading to SP3 release candidate2.

If the usb is failing or hanging then best thing is to update chip set firmware.

Download everest home, open and run, click on the + sign by motherboard, click on chip set, click on northbridge at top of right column and google chipset updates.

Generally USB ports are part of the motherboard so you will not be able to replace just the USB ports. you can try to uninstall the USB controllers in device manager then reboot your computer. they should automatically get reinstalled. also try booting to safemode and check if it will recognize your USB devices.

*if you get a pop up for found new hardware when you plug in any of your USB devices then it would usually indicate that the hardware is working fine and the problem is with your OS

Have you tried all ports? I suggest you to try different port and usb device. Then ask HP for help if the port still does not work. Feel free to visit DigitalSupportTech for getting help.

It may be that you need to update your drivers

Start here

Microsoft's built in drivers may not be making best use of your hardware and causing the problem you describe.

The driver may be for the motherboard and not usb.
Either way it provided you with the opportunity to update other drivers too

My mass storage device & usb plugs wont work


You need to find out what motherboard you have or if your computer came with a disk. You need to load the driver of the motherboard so you can access your usb ports.

USB ports not working


I think the root issue of usb ports not working is a problem with your USB port's drivers no longer communicating with your computer. This often occurs when you install an update to your computer's operating system.

Does 1 Usb port work on your computer? Sometimes they can go out. Do you have a USB hub you can use?

Acer Aspire 5050-5430 USB ports stopped working


Hi,
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.

Compaq Presario v2000 w/ dead USB ports


I have the same problem with my Compaq Presario V2000. Lost both USB ports and HP tells me that the motherboard has to be replaced at $300 +..I searched and found a PCMCIA card with two USB ports for $10. No problems with the USB ports on this card..great and cheap solution.
My belief is that the compaq usb ports do not have power limiting circuitry therefore allowing you to overload the output power on the ports. My ports failed after I downloaded into a burglar alarm system I was programming.
