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. I was battery for extended time, but not doing anything video intensive - taking notes with onenote in laptop mode. The screen would flash with random frequency, and made it almost unusuble, but then would stop for a few minutes and start again. It finally stopped, but i never found a cause. I did disable the WIndows error reporting, made sure i had the latest driver (mine is slightly newer then what lenovo system wants to download) -  2. Video resolution when used with external monitor - I have an external monitor above the laptop - leaving the laptop at recommended 2560 x 1440 and size at 200% (recommended) makes the laptop 2x as big as the monitor above it in the extended desktop layout - this causes issues moving the mouse between the 2 as the monitor is 2x the size of the lptop.

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).
 
You could also try the advanced startup options from within windows.

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.

You can Google: Thinkpad 770 external monitor

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

This USB Device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port.

When i click on it, none of them are high speed ports, yet this motherboard is good quality from what i see.

So I had to force a shutdown by pushing the power button. Now - naturally - I can't log in to my original OS without mouse/keyboard.

Have you tried to boot it into safe mode?
Use the following steps to start Windows 7 in Safe Mode when the computer is off:

Turn on the computer and immediately begin pressing the F8 key repeatedly.
From the Windows Advanced Options Menu, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and press ENTER.
Then.....

Update Hardware Drivers: Assuming your hardware drivers are causing system instability, you may want to download and install updated drivers from your manufacturer?s website and install them in Safe Mode. If your computer is unstable, you?ll have to do this from Safe Mode ? the hardware drivers won?t interfere and make your computer unstable in Safe Mode.

So I have been trying to get my USB ports to work with no luck. It's really weird, they worked one night and then stopped working by the next time I got to the computer. They are the rear usb ports on the back of my mobo which is a geforce 6100-m9. I plug my ipod into the ports and they charge the ipod so i know they have power but the comp doesn't recognize the ipod and connect to it along with my flash drive. I have unintalled the drivers and reinstalled them multiple times thinking I did it wrong and still no success.

Anyone have any ideas?

How were you uninstalling drivers? If you were doing it any way outside of the Device Manager then there is a good chance you were doing it wrong. Just delete your USB root hubs from device manager and reboot. Windows should autodetect and install the drivers for them automatically.

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

I recently downgraded my HP 15-r209ni Notebook from Windows 8 to Windows 7. Only Windows 8 drivers are listed under the support page, but they all seemed to install and work just fine. The only problem is that my USB  ports don't work after Windows loads up. There aren't any drivers under the support page and Windows Update can't find them, nor can several driver update programs - It's just listed as an unknown Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller under the Device Manager.  Any idea where I might be able to get those drivers?

Hey there
Basically, I was just using my comp as normal, went to bed, got up, turned on pc and all of my usb ports weren't working, checked device manager they all had ! next to them, thought ok, il simply uninstall and reinstall and i should be fine. This was not the case, they just keep going back to the same state after reinstalling. Any ideas?
Cheers

1. BIOS change (on its own mysteriously)
2. Fault in Southbridge
3. Fault in USB Controller (May be part of Southbridge)
4. Malware

I would suspect hardware though, to be honest.

Hi All

Hopefully just a quick problem...

I was engaged in some heated chat with a girl i met in the Yahoo! chat rooms when before i knew it we were sparking up the Web Cam's(haw haw haw)... now my only problem is... i recently upgraded my computer to this.

Asus A8V Deluxe MB with USB 2.0
Athlon 64 3200+

Now ive never had a problem like this before, and as far as i can see all the USB controllers are there and appear to be software active, i checked BIOS and all seem correct, although to my only semi-triained eye.

Now my computer was formatted so i had only just tried to re-install the web cam when i realised, and as far as i can see its not even getting power.

Any Ideas guys/gals ??

i have had this problem before, and i ended up doing a full format to fix it along with a few other problems at the time, but now its doing it again!

when i try my usb stick in any of the usb ports, it just wont recognise it. it doesnt even pop up with a message or anything, nothing happens at all. when i turn my printer on it wont recognise that either, and the cable for that has never been taken out.

i have a wireless keyboard and mouse which use a single usb reciever, which still works fine. my usb wireless networking adaptor still works ok, and i also have a 3d mouse which i use for CAD which also still work ok. (non of these cables are ever removed from there ports)

i have tried a system restore back to when it was working fine, but it hasnt fixed it.
no drivers appear to be out of date.

i also run ubuntu as a dual boot, and the usb's work fine in that. so its definately just a windows problem.

i am running windows 7 64bit.

thanks

A:usb ports not working again

Try uninstalling all the "USB Root Hubs" in Device Manager (right-click >> Uninstall), then restart Windows to re-install them automatically.

Note: Do not uninstall any of the Host Controllers, just the root hubs.

My computer crashed and I had to take it in for repair. They put Windows 7 on it and I am liking it so far. However, none of the USB ports work. I work from home and all of my files are on an external hard drive so this is a big problem!

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling all of the USB drivers. I have cleaned the registry and done a driver scan. I have checked the USB options in BIOS to make sure that they are enabled. I also enabled them under Power Management through the control panel. Nothing is helping! Please help me so that I can start working again!

Thanks in advance!!!!!

A:USB ports not working...PLEASE help!

Considering you will have paid to have Windows 7 put on, take it back to the repair shop and get them to sort it, as you seemed to have tried the usual methods already.

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.

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.

I was given a toshiba satellite a15-s1292 when I got home and turned it on I found out some had tried to install a pirated copy of xp pro on it. I decided to make a backup of the drivers on my thumb drive so I could reinstall the proper os but the usb ports do not work. In device manager they are enabled and working properly.
So my question is what is causing them to not work? Is it a driver issue or is it a physical issue? What can I do to find out?
