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.

One of our USB ports broke inside and now none of them are working. How do we fix?


Do you have a second PC to try installing DM on to?

If not then you could always try upgrading DM to a newer version as it should install drivers.
I would uninstall the old version first and make sure you save your backup files.

I had on device that would charge but not connect to a PC, if the device USB connector is wiggly then chances are that it is broken inside. Repair shops can fix it but for a lil more you can get a new device.

USB ports not working, slow computer


The error you are getting is the USB port driver. I suggest disconnecting ALL of the items you have connected to ALL of the USB ports and rebooting. If the computer reboots normally, go back and install ONE and ONLY one USB device. Restart your machine. If it boots OK, shut down, remove that device and connect another one, restart again. Do this for EACH of the USB devices until you find one that causes the computer to boot slowly and/or generates the error message. That one is the culprit and needs to be repaired before reattaching to your system.

If, however, after removing all of the USB devices initially and rebooting, you still get the error message, then you have a USB driver problem. You will need to remove the USB driver and reinstall from a known good location (like HP's website) to fix the driver problem.

Usb ports not recongized


Hello,

Do use in the front ports, sometime this port is unplug to the motherboard so it need to connect before you can use that port. In the back port you can always use that ports in there it is safe to connect any plug and play device such as flash disk or usb port printer. if this both not recognize your any device you inserted then probably your device is dead. try insert your device to other pc to see if still working if not then maybe the driver of your pc are not installed. try reinstall all the driver of your system.

may this help.

USB Flash drive broken


Have to be taken to either your local PC repair shop or sent back to the manufacturer. I would send it back to the manufacturer because they are more familiar with your system. There is nothing you can do to fix it has to be fixed on motherboard.

My USB socket in my laptop won't hold a usb connection. Now I'm unable to use it to hook up to my printer, flashdrive, etc. What should I do? Do you know of and repair shops.


How old is the laptop?
If it's new enough, you might be able to get Compaq to repair it for you.

If not, wellllll it might be a little tough.
The only place you are going to be able to get replacement parts for it, is through Compaq / HP (they are one in the same)

It doesn't hold it on any of the USB ports?
You might want to try getting a little unpowered USB 4 port hub, and attaching it to the port, and then figure out a way to bond the hub to the port (hot glue, tape etc) just so that you don't have to plug and unplug it. It might be ugly, but it would give you 4 good new ports a lot cheaper then taking it to a shop.
