Problem with usb ports

Well recently, my pc's usb ports are working very fine.
suddenly, my co-workers here just told me that they just stop working.
all usb device are not detected to all usb ports.
i've looked every possiblities why this problem happened.
ive checked the bios setup and it's ok everything is enabled,
drivers are also properly installed.
i even tested it last time by going to regedt32 -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\ENUM\USB
i changed the permission into full access and
i deleted the ROOT_HUB and ROOT_HUB20 and restarted the pc...

when it boots up, those deleted values were automatically installed,
guess the system traced it out that they are missing and needed them to install again...

but the problem is that usb devices aren't yet working....
that means usb ports' drivers were installed and detected by any usb removable device are not? What seems to be the problem bro?
thanks in advance... hope you could help me out with this...

A usb device may have blown out some of the ports, If you have at least one working usb, get a powered usb hub to get more ports.

My NV55c laptop usb ports on the right side suddenly have stopped working.

Motherboard issue.assuming all the drivers are properly installed. Not uncommon. Use the remainder and if necessary get an adapter to increase the number of ports you have.

hi there.
my wife has m.s. and i understand where you are coming from and how tired you will get from time to time.
have you told you work place that you have m.s.?.if not you need to.
your co-worker is wrong to say that to you,but does your co-worker know what you have?.
maybe you need to explain to your co-workers what you have and how it effects you,and you could ask them to read up about it.
hope you are ok and you get it sorted.
all the best and good luck.

If you are talking about an external hard drive or external usb device that you put into one of the usb ports it might be bad. You could try a different usb port. Also try using it on another computer.

If it does not work on a different usb port or another computer then it's definitely bad.

I have brother MFC-7420 printer which was working fine on my mac pc, now all of a sudden it has stopped printing or scanning and says printer offline

Try a new data cable. Make sure there are no error messages on the printer itself and that it is on.

If you are using a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Check that a known working device works in the ports. Try uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it. The drivers are available here: . Select your OS, then language and click Search.

Check the device status and the USB status. (I know how to do this in Windows but forget the Mac specifics.)

I hope this helps.

There are a few toys and devices made in China that deadshort the USB terminals. I hope you have not bought and installed one of these. I had 2 in the shop a year ago with some Dora Explorer usb toy that toasted the usb once installed. If you have bought and installed something about the same time as the usb stopped working you will need to call the company that made the device and demand they replace your motherboard.

Usb ports not working

All the USB ports were working before he installed SP3 and rebooted. After that only the mouse/keyboard ports worked. Same thing happened to me. No other changes were made, so something added/change by SP3 is the culprit.

Questions is...what did SP3 do to break USB and how to fix it?
