The only change that happened was moving the PC to a house out of an old apartment. However, after restarting at the new location USB ports do not recognize new devices when plugged in, even though they show 'ENABLED' - NAS drives, video cams, etc. The solutions I have tried: 1.) reboot the machine; results - the same; 2.) Uninstalled the USB boot devices from Hardware Manager, rebooted and hardware was recognized and installed - results - still do not function.
Anything else, before I go out to buy PCI card replacements?

I found this on an internet search:
"If you are running Windows 7 the USB ports can be powered down using Selective Suspend.
Start > Control Panel > Power Options (if not visible change view to Large Icons at top right) > Change Plan Settings (for whatever plan you want) > Change Advanced Power Settings > Change settings that are currently unavailable > Set USB selective suspend setting to Disabled under USB settings and then click OK to save the changes.
You may have to reboot."
See if printer will work in another working computer. If it does the issue is with your computer hardware/software. If it also does not work then the issue is with the printer. And if so, it is not cost effective to repair given the price of printers these days.
Definitely you can try with different enclosure, and it will work in any enclosure... But before buying a new enclosure it would be better if you try to connect the hard drive in a different computer to isolate where the issue is...
no operating system even stated.
Xp/vista/w7/w9/w10/ linux ,what.... must we guess?
is your internet connection working? it must or PNP will be near brain DEAD ,do that first.
ok guess w10.
why not see if OTHER USB works first
barrow a real mouse not that battery dead wireless wonder mouse?
get a real mouse
make sure that works
then put in a new battery in your wireless mouse
RTM it tells you how
USB tests, all so obvious.
use real desktop key board , that work
or USB memory stick , add file to it, see other files you have there>?
only clues here is USB dead, 2 months old.(means new? or new to you?)
go to CP
then go to device manager
see yell or red error there that driver stack?
bingo bad driver
reload any that are bad.
google how to reload a windows 10 driver, be like 10,000,0000 hits.
If the 1 tb is spinning up, which I assume it is, the new PC (assuming a Win 7 OS) should see it and mount a driver to be able to talk with it. I would double check all my connections at the drive and the PC, try different USB ports just in case one is dead.
You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.
Perhaps its the drivers for the USB ports. Do you have or can you borrow a serial mouse and keyboard (PS/2 style)? If not, perhaps a local computer store may have an adapter to convert your USB devices to PS/2. Look at this site to get a visual of the device I am talking about: http://sewelldirect.com/ps2tousb.asp
This will allow you to bypass the USB portion of your computer and allow you to make the necessary changes in BIOS or to see if it is indeed a driver problem.
