If you need multiple USB ports, go onto ebay and find a 3.3v PCI usb card. The large PCIX slots in the server are PCI compatible and will accept a 3.3v pci card. (It just doesnt fill the entire socket), or you will notice to the bottom of the mainboard there is ONE 5v pci slot, you can get a 5v PCI USB cotroller and stick it in there.

Either way, you have more USB sockets. As the mainboard ones are built in, if its broken, you either need to get a new mainboard (not cheap), or get a cheap PCI USB card.

(Note if using ESX, ESX 3.5 and below do not recognise USB ports anyway).

I have one myself and have done as mentioned.

Usb port not working

What are you trying to plug in to the USB port? Maybe its a bad USB stick, not necceserally a bad USB port on the computer.
USB should work on its own, there are no drivers available to download. If the problem continues I suggest you take it for a repair.

No power in socket for charging phones etc. Is it a fuse problem?

Are you speaking of a USB port (connector) on the laptop?

Scroll down

If so........NO
There is no fuse for any USB ports. Laptop or desktop computer.

That USB port is bad. None of the USB ports work? Then the USB bus is bad, that all USB ports operate off of.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

1 usb port on toshiba satellite c660 doesn't recognize mouse

If is just a USB port, then it could be a driver problem, or that USB hub is turn off, or is a fried/bad USB port. Try another USB device on that port too.

I cannot get a SanDisk flashdrive to go into either of the USB ports on my new desktop computer. I am using the USB ports located on top of the computer

To test the functionality of the usb ports in front of the computer
1. Insert another flash drive or another usb device like a usb mouse on front the computer 2. If it detect the usb device that means 2 things flash drive might be bad and the front usb port is working 3. If it does not, It means that the flash drive might be bad or the usb port is not connected to the front panel of the computer 4. Try also inserting the flash drive at the back of the computer see if the usb drive is detected in all ports 5. Check the BIOS for any usb port associativity

Both USB ports use the same driver, so if one works and one doesn't, you have a mechanically bad port. You'll need to replace the hardware to solve the problem. There are usually a lot of bad D600 motherboards on Ebay. Or try to find just the USB port you need. Fairly simple replacement task, but laptop dis-assembly will be required to reach the part.

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.

Cant get the software to installe

It sounds like either the USB cable itself is bad or the USB port is bad. Try the USB cable in all the other USB ports on the computer. If it still does not work, try a USB mouse and see if it works. If it does then there is a problem with the USB cable provided with the MP3 Player. If the mouse does not work, then there is a problem with the USB ports on your computer. My assumption is that it is a bad cable.

I added a 512mb stick to my ibm t30 think pad and one port is bad

You can plug a USB hub into the working USB port on the computer. The USB hub can have several ports so you can plug in several USB devices.
I suggest you get a powered USB hub because if all the devices that you plug into this hub exceeds 500mA then your computer's USB port will stop working because it could not supply enough current.
You will not need to plug in the power adapter into the hub if the device/s do not overload the computer's USB port.

Can't install my canon ip90v printer does not recognise my usb port on my laptop, my system is vista premium

Can you try any other USB devices on that USB port to determine if it is good or bad? If it is bad, it is bad and will need to be repaired before you can use any USB devices on it.. Do you habve any other USB ports that work on that system? If so, try using one of them.
