    I have three usb ports.Two of them stopped working about 2 years ago.I was left with one only usb which I then put a hub into so I could use a mouse and a printer at the same time but it has stopped working.The computer says usb not recognised.I did recently get my camera lead to be recongnised but it seems to work when it likes and why are the other usbs not working at all.when I plug anything into them nothing happens at all.

Then it sounds like a hard ware problem, especially when something just likes to work when it wants it's usually a hardware prob. also check to be sure the connections inside the laptop are secure and the usb connectors are secure.
i had an older computer about 3 years ago and 2 of the usb ports went bad, had to almost wiggle them in to get them to recognize.

No there is no problem in your labtop or your labtop battery.
The life or the time of battery back up depends to what you work in your labtop.
So if you listen to music or watch videos the time of battery backup will be short because listening
to music or watching some videos uses much power to supply the devices of multimedia like the
labtop speakers and the hard drive motor ,in addition to the labtop FAN
All those devices needs more power to run .
But if you dont work in your labtop on any of these are membered and just surf the net or work
in other places the battery backup time will be longer.

Hi with the USB port they often wear and can be tightend by gently prizing up the flat contact strips inside the socket, this requires a fine needle and a steady hand. If this fails just install a PCIMA USB card. the fan could be faulty, if you can use a multimeter then test the contacts and see if you have power to it. Regards mistyman
