How is it damaged? Physically, i.e,. bent pins, or something broken?
If so, then total replacement of the motherboard is the only solution,
other than using a different USB port.
Or, for a desktop computer, you can add-in a PCI adapter-card, to add more USB ports.

Tip

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

My wired mouse on my desk top computer (windows XP) won't move. How do I fix this? I opens the mouse, cleaned it, made sure mouse. keyboard etc. was correctly plugged in, nothing has worked. Please help


It would seem that your mouse is broken. They easiest way to tell if it is your mouse that is broken is to plug that mouse into another computer. If you have another computer you should try plugging your mouse into that one to see if that works. If you don't have another computer ask a friend or family member who does to help you out. It seems most likely that you have a ball mouse using a PS/2 port, the plug pictured in green. Fortunately mice are relatively inexpensive. Even laser mice, which are more accurate, easier to use, and don't jam up with lint and dust build up. If the issue is not your mouse, it may be the port to which your mouse is plugged in. If you are using a PS/2 mouse and your port is no longer working you can get a new mouse that uses a USB port. If your current mouse is using a USB port try changing the port it is plugged into. An example of what a USB port looks like is pictured below. It is the picture of the two ports with the USB logo next to it, a dot with lines going to another dot, a triangle, and a square.mthealey716_1.jpgmthealey716_2.jpg

Doesn't work.....no laser light appears on the bottom of the mouse. Nothing happens when I hit the "connect" button.


It sounds like these is either a problem with the USB port on the motherboard or with the mouse itself.

Assuming that if a wireless mouse: the batteries are new, the device is actually turned on and the transmitter has been removed from the mouse and plugged into the the USB port and it still does not work, it should be tried on all the other USB ports of the computer. If none work, try on another computer.

This will help determine if the mouse or the computer is the problem. If the mouse does not work on other ports or on the other computer, a defective mouse is likely. If it does work in a different USB port of the original computer, the first USB port is suspect.

If it only works on a different computer, the problem my lie in the setup or BIOS page of the computer. Look for a setting for USB ports. Enable the ports if disabled, and try again. If still no luck, there is some other issue at the motherboard level. Unless fairly new and under warranty, it will probably not be worth trying to fix the problem, when a $20 USB expansion card could be purchased and installed to provide USB connectivity needed.

You could also try connecting a different USB device (if available) to test the USB port. A USB webcam, hard drive, mechanical mouse, etc. are all good choices to test the port. You should indicate or cover any ports that are found to be defective.

I hope this helped and good luck!

Usb mouse


here is what you can try,

1. try to connect the usb mouse in the other usb ports to check if it works
2. try another usb mouse.

if the usb mouse works in other ports and not in some of them...USB ports gone bad.
if it does not work anywhere, the mouse has gone bad. also to check the usb ports check if keybaord works or not. if yes..its just the mouse. it cost approximately $10. go and get a new one.

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000 Doesnt seem to work?


Okay, a coworker had this problem and it was a fairly easy fix, first, plug the USB reciever into a direct USB port, then pess the connect button on the underside of the mouse, when the red light starts blinking let go and then press it and hold, and at the SAME TIME press and hold the connect button on the receiver until both the receiver light and the mouse light turn on steadily, and voila!

Can't load os do you computer Dell only has usb ports


Ensure the Keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB ports nearest the PS2 port on the back of the chassis.

Boot to the BIOS F2 and ensure USB emulation is ON.

If you can't access the bios, reset the BIOS using the Jumper on the motherboard, then USB ports should then work.

Broken Prong inside connector for mouse


If the ps2 port on the main board is broken you will need to replace the board. If this is the case and your computer has usb ports on it just go out and buy a usb mouse.

 

If the part that is broken is from the mouse by using tweezers try to gently remove the broken part from the board. if unsuccessful use the usb port with a usb mouse.
