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?

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.

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.

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

I would go with externally powered solutions. One thing you can try that shouldn't hurt anything is boot into safe mode and uninstall the usb stuff in Device Manager. On reboot Windows will reinstall the same drivers. This often fixes stuff that works but does not work correctly.

I recently added a 512mb stick of RAM to a computer running XP. Immediately following, (perhaps by coincidence) none of the devices plugged into the USB ports are recognized. I tried two different devices, an HP Photosmart printer and a flash drive into multiple USB ports and none of them were recognized.

The new stick of RAM is posting, so I know the addition of the RAM may not necessarily be the problem. I have the most current drivers installed for the printer, so I know this is not the issue.

I read on another forum http://www.techsupportforum.com/microsoft-support/windows-vista-support/218291-usb-s-stop-working-when-i-install-more-ram.html
where a user reported having exactly the same problem while they were running Vista. The solution was to delete said corrupted USB files, reinstall the RAM and then plug the devices back in...

Does anyone have any insight into how to do this?
 

A:USB Ports Not Working/New RAM the Cause?

I agree the ram most likely did not cause the problem.

Check device mgr for any yellow marks. If everything looks normal, you can try this reg fix for usb problems. Note make a restore point before you begin this task. The following is a fix posted by John Will [another mod]

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

I have searched for this problem and have found some information and have taken some recommended steps to fix the problem with no success.

I fried my CPU and after installing a new one none of the ports on the back of my box work. The USB ports do not work nor do the PS2 ports and it also appears that none of the expansion slots on the mobo work either. Fortunately the USB ports on the front of the box still function.

I tried deleting the USB drivers and reloading them. I tried reloading the motherboard drivers.

My board is a Biostar TA790GX XE.

I also have a couple of further questions.

1) I know that you usually cannot switch out a motherboard and use the same hard drive unless you through a process to make it all work. Is this still necessary if you install an identical motherboard? Can you put everything back on an identical motherboard and fire it right up?

2) Can somebody direct me to a good guide to doing back ups?

Thanks!!!

When a USB device such as a flash drive is plugged in, the computer does not react at all. It does not find the device nor does it show (not even as unknown) in the device list. However when I boot the computer with the device plugged in, it works fine.

IThis may be related. I have an 'Unknown Device' that periodically pops up and then disappears. I've tried many software programs & checks but nothing can identify it. I have the latest Intel chipset drivers installed and my drivers through DriverMax are up-to-date.

I would appreciate any help.

A:USB ports not working

I you have not already done this, go into the BIOS (integrated peripherals) and find all USB controllers....anything that says USB on it and make sure it's enabled. For some reason, I have seen BIOSs that have certain USB function disabled be default. One was disabled on a Gigabyte board I got a few months ago. There must be some reason they have, but I would just make sure. It may be something simple like this. Hope this helps.

I am working on a friends laptop, a Dell Inspiron 9200 running Windows XP Pro with SP3. I have it working well now except the USB ports do not work.

The laptop was in pretty bad shape when I started. I remove Norton Antivirus (subscription expired 3 years ago), removed a few trojans and viruses using Malwarebytes and Combofix, and installed AVG Free. I also cleaned up the temp files, compacted the registry using NTRegOpt, and defragmented the drive.

I have tried uninstalling the USB controllers and let Windows reinstall them, verified working status in Device manager, and disabled USB device power management. I also plugged in a USB mouse and verified the ports are supplying power.

I should add that the USB ports did not work before any of the above, but I know they worked two years ago. Ideas?

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".

I have no idea what to do with this informatio... Read more

Hi,

I have a desktop PC which has USB ports on the front and the back sides. I tried plugging in a flash drive (works well on other PCs) on both sides but there is no response. i checked on the device manager the properties of the USB ports and it says its working properly. i checked at the BIOS to make sure its enabled, i shut down and removed the power cord, plugged it back in and restarted the pc, uninstalled and reinstalled my USB controllers. i was still not successful. i opened the CPU and the physical connections inside and there seem to be no problem.

There is though this one suspicious Unknown Device under the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Its properties says that there are no drivers installed for the device. I ran DriverGuide Toolkit to get more details on this device but this is the only info i could get:

Class: USB
Version: 5.1.2600.0
Date: 07/01/2001
Manufacturer: (Standard USB Host Controller)
---------------------------------------------
Capabilities: 0
Class: USB
ClassGUID: {36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}
CompatibleIDs: USB\UNKNOWN
ConfigFlags: 0
DeviceDesc: Unknown Device
HardwareID: USB\UNKNOWN
LocationInformation: USB Device
Mfg: (Standard USB Host Controller)

I'm not sure if this device has anything to do with all the ports that are not working but if you have any idea what might be going on with my PC, I am dying to hear from you. Thanks!

SYSTEM SPECS:

Windows 7 64bit
Motherboard: ASUS p8p67-M PRO
Just bought a fancy new USB stick with high speed USB 3.0 transfer rates. So I decide to use it in my USB 3.0 ports on my computer, I've never used these ports before because I haven't had any USB 3.0 hardware.

So I plug it in only to find that NOTHING happens - USB stick doesn't light up - no sounds in windows - no auto play and nothing in "my computer" window where my drives are. I've also seen that none of my USB hardware works in any of the USB 3.0 ports.

So I went to my motherboards website thinking that I didn't have the drivers for USB 3.0(this website: Motherboards - P8P67-M PRO ) downloaded what looked like the USB 3.0 drivers and installed them and still nothing is happening when I plug this USB stick in.

The drivers I downloaded have an icon in my start menu now so I decided to click on that to see what happens, but it presents me with an error box saying "USB 3.0 host Controller Not Found" (I believe the name for the drivers are something like "Renesas").

I have a look in my device manager and see this:

http://oi59.tinypic.com/91jhmp.jpg - I have attached an image to this post if you cannot click this link.

There is a warning triangle next to "other devices"

And there is no mention of USB 3.0 in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers section.

I ask if anyone could help me fix this problem so that I can start using the USB 3.0 ports on my computer,

So, I shut down my computer last night, it's a Toshiba Satellite a215-s5837, got up, went to work, came back, turned my computer on.. or at least tried. Apparently the damn thing had not shut off after closing the lid, and since It was not plugged into the wall the battery died. When I plugged it back in and it charged for a bit I turned it on, and suddenly the two remaining USB ports are not working. Two of them were not working prior to this new issue.

So, I disabled and re-enabled legacy usb support in BIOS, updated BIOS, Disabled and reenabled all the usb hubs all items inside the device manager under the Universal Serial Bus section. Uninstalled and reinstalled all the drivers, checked system services to make sure that nothing was wrong in there, restarted the system, tried other usb items such as a flash card and webcam, none of them work.

However, all the items light up, as they are indeed receiving power from the usb ports that were working prior.

I've run a system restore back to several days before the issue. I've run a virus scan, and that's not the problem, as I have no viruses. (Used AVG and a quickly downloaded, used, and then uninstalled version of mcAffee, just to make sure it wasn't a virus avg virus definitions may have missed.) I'm currently attempting to locate the 6.0.6001.18000 usb drivers for download and re-install to see if they are simply corrupted, but so far having no luck.

I called toshiba, and they said 'take it into the authorized... Read more

A:USB ports not working

Hi. .

USB is Plug-N-Play meaning that Vista will find the drivers for you automatically, unless you have installed software for that specific USB device.

Perform a system Restore using a restore point prior to the loss of the USB.

Then check these areas:

? The Device Manager
START | type dev man into the Start Search box | right-click on Deice Manager that appears up top | select Run as Administrator | look for any red/yellow flags - pay specific attention to the USB area.

? Problem Reports and Solutions -
START | type wercon.exe into the Start Search box | right-click on wercon.exe that appears up top | select Run as Administrator | view "See Problems to Check".

? The Event Viewer -
START | type eventvwr into the Start Search box | right-click on eventvwr.exe that appears up top | select Run as Administrator | view the various logs starting with the Administrative logs.

? Reliability and Performance Moniter -
START | type perfmon into the Start Search box | right-click on perfmon that appears up top | select Run as Administrator | view both the Performance Moniter and the Reliability Moniter.

Regards. . .

All my usb ports stopped working. I reinstalled the drivers and the system says they are 'working fine' yet they aren't. Updated bios, reinstalled root hubs, no change. I have a ASUS p4p800 mboard running win xp home. ASUS dude said to reinstall OS but I can't without wiping the drive. Any thoughts?
 

A:USB ports not working

I suggest you do as the Asus guy said. Backup your important data and reformat and reinstall the OS. If that doesn`t help, It`s probably the mobo that`s faulty.
