I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Vista Ultimate 64-bit, ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard, USB mouse and keyboard connected in back ports.

Two things happened: Avira antivirus warned me of some threats which I either ignored or deleted. Windows Update had some updates ready (although I'm not sure if it updated).

I turned off my PC for a couple of hours, turned it back on and realized that my USB keyboard was not working on the password screen.

I eventually unplugged it from the back and plugged it into the front, where it worked. However, my USB mouse did not work when plugged into the second front port, nor did it work when plugged into the front port in which the keyboard worked.

I accessed System Restore using my keyboard and restored to one day previously. When it finished, both keyboard and mouse worked, although I got a pop-up message alerting me that the "drivers for your device could not be installed." When I clicked "OK," the mouse stopped working again.

I have checked BIOS and both mouse and keyboard are recognized, so it does not appear to be a hardware issue.

This is a brand new custom built PC for web browsing for a motel lobby.

Win7 Home Premium
AMD A4-3300 Llano
MSI A55M-P33 FM1
Rosewill FBM-02 MicroATX Mini Tower

Running latest BIOS and latest drivers downloaded directly from manufacturer's website.

I tried switching between all 3 internal headers and none of them would detect the flash drive.

If I plug the drive in the rear ports it detects right away leading me to suspect the case's ports might be defective but I don't have another USB 2.0 card lying around to confirm.

Based on this info does it seem likely that the front ports themselves are faulty?

A:Front USB ports not working, but rear USB ports work…

You might check to see if the case end of the USB cables are properly plugged into the front panel holding the headers. Some board need more than one brand of USB drivers, Renesas, NEC, etc.

So I'm sure this isnt' where this goes honestly but putting it out there just to try to help anybody else who struggled with this as long as I did... I ended up getting my two USB ports on the left side (turned out to be my 3.0 ports) to work again when they wouldn't recognize anything. I could use the 2 USB on the right 2.0 ports, but the transfer rate was terrible.  My response on another question where someone had a similar issue... good luck!  "Hi  Not sure if this will help you but I had the same problem, the two left ports were not working on my Dv7. This whole time I thought the right USB were my 3.0 ports so I figured it'd be okay but it's been over a year since I originally had this issue and was doing a bunch of system maintenance so figured I'd look through it again. Anyway, I went to Device Manager through the Computer Management tool. I know you can go straight to device manager, but just giving it to you exactly how I did it. You can just search computer management from Start.  So I selected Device Manager from the menu on the left side and it looked like regular device manager. Went down to Universal Serial bus Controllers... at this point I looked at the action menu on the right and selected more actions, view, and clicked Show Hidden Devices. After that i went through my USB Controllers one by one as I had done many times before and checked them out, tried updating drivers, etc... I noticed underneath the USB Controller... Read more

Hey guys, brand new kid here. Fairly computer literate but not a whiz by any means. I had to do a Windows XP System Recovery on my HP desktop PC a few weeks ago and since then my USB 2.0 ports haven't been themselves.

Before when I used my Kingston 4gb SDHC card in my front USB 2.0 ports (as they're labeled) it worked at full speed with no problems. After the System Recovery, when I plug in the card it gives me a message saying "This device could perform faster if it were plugged into a High Speed USB 2.0 Port." The problem is, my Device Manager lists a high speed port and hub on my computer, but I get the same message on all the ports on my computer. I tried updating the drivers and uninstalling and reinstalling them but to no avail.

Is there any way to fix this?

I doubt there are any fixes and these are mostly observations, but here goes: 1. The other day, I had screen flashes for a couple hours in the middle of the day.

Are you trying those keys on startup or on restart?  If you've only tried on startup,  try on restart - or on startup after a full shutdown (SHIFT + shut down).

Hello. I recently installed a Samsung 950 Pro in the P50.After some problems during the installation it seems to work fine, but.... The 950 pro supports AES Hardware encryption (Advanced Encryption Standard, Class0 SED).I also was able to use it with a normal SSD before. After I installed the 950 NVMe, the option for setting a harddrive Password inside the BIOS just vanished.  am not able to set any harddrive passwort and thus use encryption. Every other PW seems to work fine...I would like to ask why that happened there and I hope that some of you may be able to help me with that. Thank you very much,Greetz










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Thinpad P50, Samsung 950 pro and password security

While 950 Pro presumably supports AES on hardware level (i.e. all data is encrypted prior being written on the flash chips), key management is still "to be supported by FW update" ( http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/ssd950pro/specificatio... ) If you want to encrypt your 950Pro, use Bitlocker or other third-party encryption solution. There is a performance and SSD wear cost associated with that, but it's negligible for most applications.

Do not confuse "external monitor" with "DUAL Monitor". The latter is what you apparently want. The former is what you have.

Hey
Today i just bought some ear phones, with a connected mouth piece. Problem is that my two front ports are dodgy for the microphone and headphones. So if i put the jacks from my headset into the back, i have to take out my speaker input.. Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated
Thanks
 

A:Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or newegg.com for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

A:USB ports not working

Perhaps a silly question, but you have double checked that all the drivers have been installed correctly on the drive that isn't operating them correctly?

If they work fine with another drive and fresh install that would lead me to believe there is a driver / software problem on the faulty installation.

Last night I was transferring some files from my laptop to my external hard drive and everything was working fine but then a couple hours later, I went to plug in some rechargeable USB batteries that I have and noticed that they weren't lighting up. I then tried plugging in several of my other USB devices but none of them were connecting either.

I've tried several other solutions after Googling the issue but none of them have worked so far. Here's a brief summary of what I've tried:

- Restarting the computer. (However, I did notice that if I plug in the batteries after restarting the computer they do light up for a split second and then instantly fade away.)
- Turning off the computer and disconnecting all power sources and re-starting.
- Checking device manager and checking for driver updates and re-installing the USB controllers. It said that they were up to date and there are no exclamation points beside any of the controllers.
- Running the sfc/scannow tool. I didn't find any integrity violations.
- Doing a system restore back to a couple days ago when they were working fine.
- I ran a full virus scan with Microsoft security essentials and it didn't find anything.
- The only thing that has even remotely given an inclination of an error is this fix... Read more

Oh dear, what have I done now?! I have a 6(ish) year old laptop running Windows XP pro. I've always used a hub to add USB ports, and have never had a problem until now. I think it was the phone that did it. I just got a new phone, and it has a USB charger (which plugs into a wall unit) but I assumed that also meant it could charge via computer (after all, my iPod does.) It seemed okay, though I kept getting little connect and disconnect sounds as if I were plugging and unplugging devices. It wasn't until I unplugged the phone that I noticed my keyboard wasn't working. Investigating, I found that my 7-port hub had no lights on but the little red power light. I plugged the keyboard directly into the computer and it works. Okay, I thought. I fried my hub. Dang. So I ran into the next room and retrieved my spare that I don't like so much because of the really bright blue light. Plugged it in. Same thing that happens with the other hub--I got a pop up window saying "USB Device Not Recognized-One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance...click this message." I click the message and get a box with a list of ports that starts with "USB Root Hub 6 ports" and below that is a list of ports each with a USB symbol in line. The first is bold, and just says "Unknown Device" and all the others say "unused Port".

Hi, I just joined here becuase my Dell Windows XP Computer's USB Ports at the front aren't working. The ones in the bac are working just fine. am a newb here, so I don't know what anything is called, so please don't flame.

You know how every USB Port has a little thing in it? It only has one of them? Then there's another one in the cord you plug in, only it's on the opposite side? It's inside the metal at the end of the tip of the cord. Anyways, one of those things from my computer got stuck in one of my USB Cords so there was none in the USB place on the front of the computer. I got the piece out with a knife, I think. But now when I go to put ANY USB cord in it doesn't do anything. There's 2 USB places on the front of the computer. One is perfectly normal (like there's the normal thing inside it). The other one doesn't have the little thing and I can't even fit any USB cord into it. I think that USB place is making the other one not work, because when I try to put the cord in the normal one it fits but it still doesn't recognize anything. If anyone can tell me what these things are called, and tell me what to do, that would be great.

Also if you don't understand what I mean, I can take pictures of it.

since they work off of the same cable inside your pc the other one won't work either

what you neeed to do is order a new set up for those front ports from the manufactor of the pc or go (http://www.tigerdirect.com) and look to see if they carry that part , it may be a factory part only !!! you may have to get an exspansion kit to have external one that connect to the back to have that luxgury back

I just built my new computer and everything seemed fine untill i tried to plug in my ipod. The screen lit up and turned on but no charging icon (ipod owners will know what i'm talking about). I then tried my psp and did somthing similar(goes into usb mode an dsays the usb is connected but still doesn't show up under my computer). I then tried a different plug ( thinking i had plugged in the case usb ports wrong) but the usb ports that came attached to the mobo gave me the same results. I updated my mobo divers and i still have the same problem.

My motherboard is a evga nvidia 680i

Hello all,

Apologies if this is in the wrong place.

For a few weeks now my USB ports have not been working. I was on Windows 8 but have since upgraded to 10, but they still do not work. This is my phone and iPod, and both work on other computers with the same cables.

I've tried all of the obvious things, and basically applied all of the online advice, but to no avail. Interestingly, I turned Windows Defender on the other day and on the restart, the connected iPod worked until I disconnected it and it didn't again...

Have tried removing the USB Root Hubs but that doesn't really work because they re-appear before I can reboot.

Can anybody help please? It's frustrating because I need to sync files from my phone onto my computer, and put Motorhead on my iPod.

Many thanks,
H.
 

A:USB ports not working...

Do other devices like mice, keyboard, USB sticks/drives, etc work or is it just the phone and iPod that don't work?

What computer do you have? Does it have both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports? USB 3.0 generally have a blue inside whereas USB 2.0 ports are generally black.

Have you tried the USB ports on the back?

OK, I connected my digital camera as usual through the usb port and it is not reading my camera at all. Usually it pops up on the screen as soon as it's connected and now it's not working. I got down and actually looked into the port and found that some of the connecting little gold rods are bent out of place. I have 2 other usb ports on my computer however, & they are not working either. Could the problem with the one port be effecting all of the usb ports on my computer? I really need to fix this problem and any information on how to go about it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help received.

Maybe try a system restore to a time before the problem occurred.

(using wireless and now cable)
So I have this problem where my internet isnt working even though I'm fully connected.

It started this morning and when I ran the diagnostic (from the "IE cannot open page" page) it said that

windows can't connect... using HTTp HTTPS or FTP... probably caused by firewall settings... check setting for port (80) port (443) and port (21)...

Via google I found a similar problem (http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/...s-443-ftp.html -if it helps) where the advice given was to reboot in Safe mode with networking.

I found an ethernet cable and plugged it in but when I tried starting up my computer in safe mode (all 3) it said that it couldn't due to power failure/power-reset button was pressed (neither of which happened I'm pretty sure)

It seems that the advice for this would be to get a diagnostic off of *wherever* but as the internet isn't working I can't.

Any advice?
Oh, and my dad was using it when it started and just said some pop-ups came up and he clicked something.

Thanks for reading and/or helping but could any advice be in laymans terms. thanks again.

A:Ports 21, 80 and 443 not working (or something)

Open a command prompt and see if you can ping yahoo (ping www.yahoo.com) see if you get any replies. I would run a virus scan and make sure the popup did not give you malware. If so, follow the 5 steps in my sig.

Ok, so I was plugging in my headphones into the headphone jack and accidentally put it in the USB port. I use a USB mouse and it stopped working after that. I tried three different USB mice(Plural of mouse?) as well as a cooling fan. None of which worked in any of the three USB ports I have. 
I went to the Device Manager and updated the driver software on everything under "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and rebooted my computer.
My machine is a HP Pavilion 17 Notebook laptop. 
Touchpad still works. 
Apologies for incorrect wording or if I posted this in the wrong sub. 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
