    No, I am running on windows XP with all the updates done.

    The USB ports all work with the mobile modem but not with any other device i.e. printer, pen stick etc.

I think the root issue of usb ports not working is a problem with your USB port's drivers no longer communicating with your computer. This often occurs when you install an update to your computer's operating system.

Okay, have you tried another USB device to see if the USB mouse you mention isn't the problem? If not, it could be as simple as a dead battery in the mouse or faulty cable.

Why won't the right USB port recognize when I plug in my mouse?


Your USB ports on your computer are plug and play. If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related. The following solutions will help you identify the problem to resolve your USB port issues.
To Identify a Working USB Port
Begin troubleshooting your USB ports by checking Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
  1. Click the Start button. ClickControl Panel.
  2. ClickSystem and Maintenance.
  3. ClickDevice Manager.
  4. Double-clickUniversal Serial Bus controllersand check to see if all your USB ports, hubs and controllers are functioning correctly. Any devices not functioning will have a yellow exclamation mark in front of them.
  5. If Device Manager shows any USB ports, hubs or controllers are not functioning, check for updated drivers.

To Update the USB Port Driver

An out-of-date BIOS driver can create issues with your system recognizing the USB port.
  • Watch a Video on Steps to Update Bios on Your Computer.
    1. When the update process is complete, your computer will restart again to load the operating system with the new driver version installed.

USB Mouse NOT Detected On Acer Aspire Laptop


lol no it has nothing to do with your bios. I'm surprised that if you know your way around a bios that you would head there. You need a driver for the mouse. In case you do know more than i am giving credit then here's what to do if you already have the driver. Go into device manager and delete anything under the mouse section that is not your touchpad. then plug the usb mouse back in.

USB Port can preform faster error message


This is because you are plugging in a USB 2 device to a standard USB port, or a USB 3 device into a USB 2 port. The computer is just telling you that if you upgrade the hardware, the device will work faster. Its more of an information message than an error. Your device should still function fine.

My Acer laptop ASPIRE 5738 does not recognise USB Mouse, previously it is working fine. But if I attach other USB device it is working. It is only problem with USB mouse.


Do you have another USB mouse around that you can test with? It sounds like the USB port on your laptop is fine but the mouse is the issue.
If you can find a spare around and test or alternatively you could try to bring the laptop to a friends house and borrow their USB mouse temporarily.
My guess is that the other mouse will work fine. How many USB ports does this computer have? You can also try changing which port you plug it in to.

My mouse isn't working


If it's a PS2 connector (round), try rebooting while it's plugged in.

If it's USB, unplug it and when you plug it back in listen for the USB beep, it should give you a notification saying that there was a problem or that it was successful. If an error occurs, try plugging into another USB port and see what it does. If it then works, you have a bad USB port, if not, make sure you don't need any special software (rare). If it's a standard mouse, should be plug and play.

All USB ports not working


Sounds like a shorted out board. If you use a faulty device.. these can EASILY short out the USB controllers on the motherboard.

Alternative is to purchase a "PCMCIA USB expansion card" till you can replace the motherboard.

best wishes.

Aspire 3610 USB ports


I think you might have a loose cononection for the data ports. Try putting a little bit of force on the usb device. Up, down left right. NOT ALOT. If it starts working when force is used, i tihnk you should try to take it apart and resolder the connections. If it dosen't work, uninstalling the driver and installing.
