This morning, I found that my USB ports are not working. Any ideas on what is wrong? In the Device Manager I see USB drivers for the bluetooth and camera, but nothing for the ports - should there be? This only out of ordinary thing to occur was that I left the PC on and unplugged last night, and the batteries ran out. Help, I cant connect my iPhone!

Yesterday evening, the USB-C ports of my Lenovo Yoga 920 stopped working suddenly. While working with the computer, the connected external monitor and the laptop screen both went dark and I couldn't revive them by disconnecting/reconnecting any cables or by pressing any keys on the laptop. In the end, I had to force a hard restart of the Yoga 920 by pressing the power button on the right. After rebooting the laptop, I noticed that it completely failed to communicate with any devices connected to the USB-C port, including my external monitor, keyboard, mouse and Ethernet network. First suspecting an issue with the connected USB-C hub (Kensington USB-C Universal Dock 60W (SD4600P)), I performed a full power recycle, including detaching/attaching cables, of all involved components. This had no result. I noticed then in the Windows 10 Device Manager (devmgmt.msc), that the USB device "UCSI USB Connector Manager" was marked as not working (yellow exclamation mark). The status of the device was:This device cannot start. (Code 10) STATUS_DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE Disabling/removing/reinstalling this device in Windows 10 had no effect on the issue. Then I noticed that the laptop didn't charge while connected to the power supply from Lenovo, which was delivered with the laptop. There are two USB-C ports on the left side of the laptop. The one towards the back is marked as the one to use for charging. It didn't work any more. I had to connect the USB-C cable from th...

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.

A:USB ports on Yoga 3 Pro not working

All the USB ports are not working on Yoga 3 Pro, first check if the USB ports are enabled in BIOS option. If it is disabled then enable it and restart the computer, and check if USB ports are working. If this does not resolve the problem, then try Fix it tool from Microsoft. It will fix the USB problem automatically, click the below link. Then click Run in the File Download dialog box, and follow the steps.http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9643528 If this also does not resolve your issue, then there might be some infections which can cause problems with USB ports. Scan your PC using antivirus and check you can access USB ports.

I tried flashing bios, uninstalling the USB drivers, reinstalling the USB drivers, just about everything I can find here except removing the battery and reconnecting. When resuming from sleep I get a notification of a Power Surge on the USB port. There's nothing connected to my USB ports. Clicking Reset or Close makes no difference.

I have a problem with my desktop PC. The USB ports are not working so I can't use my keyboard or mouse.

I'm not sure if it has any connection with this, but today I tried installing a SSD to my system with no luck. While doing that, I set the BIOS to AHCI as I read that would be the most optimal. Well, I kept getting errors trying to install Win7 to the SSD so I decided to save it for a later time. Then I turned off my PC, unplugged the SSD and plugged my HDD back in. On boot up, I entered BIOS and set settings to default. After this my USB ports stopped working..

I have tried turning off my system, unplugging the powercord and the CMOS battery for at least 15 minutes with no luck. I have also tried plugging my keyboard into every single USB port my PC has. I can't even enter BIOS or press F8 to enter safe mode now. Any suggestions? I'm using WinXP and my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3.
 

A:USB ports stopped working

Borrow or purchase a ps2 kb. Enter BIOS and enable USB KB/Mouse. I'm not sure it is called exactly that, but it is something similar that you will be able to find. I too have a Gigabyte motherboard (older than yours even) and have had problems with it liking USB kb inputs until I explicitly set that in the BIOS. What is weird is sometimes USB will work if that isn't set, or sometimes it will half-*** work, as in I could get into the BIOS or force the boot selection menu, but then the kb wouldn't work.

So bottom line is, I know what you are describing, but I don't know of a good fix, outside of just acquiring a ps2 kb which will get you out of this situation 100% of the time.

My computer crashed after doing a backup and the keyboard stopped working so I decided to remove all USBs and reinsert them then all my other USBs stopped working how do I fix this ?

And I get error 28 for all my USB drivers

A:USB ports stopped working

Sometimes this is a BIOS issue.
Reboot your computer and hit the "Delete" button, during "post".
It should be a black screen with white alpha numerics. At the bottom of the screen it may tell you to hit a different key, like F2.
In the BIOS,check your usb setting, in case it has gone haywire.

Also update the info in the "My System Specs". More information makes it easier to trouble shoot.

I was off work for a few days, returned and hooked up my laptop and now it will not recognize my printer when plugged into the usb port.  I tried other devices and it won't recognize any except my wireless mouse.  I have searched and it appears it could be a usb 3.0 port not recognizing a 2.0 connection...but that doesn't explain why it has been working all of this year until now.  I also notice there is only one USB Root Hub where I have 3 ports.  Do you need a root hub for each port?  The root hub is xHCI. Would appreciate any assistance.

hi all, this problem started out as just one port, but quickly has spread to all ports. i installed a new printer hewlett packard 3550 deskjet, which initially worked perfectly and then died after printing once. i have also just installed a dvd burner (LG super multi RW) which doesn't seem to work properly either. since installing these new things all my usb ports have died. further i have to restart my computer often three times before the mouse will work. worried. any suggestions?
 

A:all my usb ports stopped working!

uninstall the new stuff and restart with the printer connected.
this should reinstall that device and it should work more than once.
Once that is stable, repeat with the dvd.

using the device manager, you should never see a red or yellow icon, which
says disabled or problem respectively

Short story: All my USB ports stopped working. Well actually... not ALL of them.

Long story: The USB ports on my computer consist of 6 ports onthe motherboard, 2 additional ports on my Cooler Master case, and yet another 2 ports provided by an add-on card plugged into my motherboard (in a manner similar to my video card). I am able to use a keyboard and mouse because the 2 ports on the add-on card are still working. The fact that the USB ports on the motherboard AND the ports on the case stopped working suggests that this isn't a motherboard problem. Nevertheless, I need to fix the motherboard and case USB ports because I can't plug in a printer or camera or anything like that.

Clicking this message inevitably didnt help.

This has only happened today, and I only noticed it after installing Daemon Tools v4.0 which I have now uninstalled which hasnt solved the problem. This could of course be a coincidence.

Hi

I am running Windows XP SP3 on a HP Compaq NX6325.

A month ago I got all 3 of my USB ports stopped working. Device Manager shows each USB Host Controller and the corresponding USB Root Hub as working correctly.

I can uninstall the USB Root Hubs, but the 3 Host Controllers will not allow me to interact at all, i.e. I when I try to update the driver, disable it or delete it then the window freezes until I stop the process.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest from the HP website and made sure that USB is enabled.

Searching the web I have tried a few driver check programs, all of which says nothing about upgrading the USB.

One thing to mention.... from the MS website it states that USB usualy uses IRQ 9 whereas my USB Controllers are on IRQ 19.

Any help gratefully received

A:3 x USB Ports Stopped working

You cannot update...USB controller drivers, those are installed by Windows. If they are damaged, updating won't necessarily overcome that.

Go to Device Manager...ignore the hubs, uninstall each controller...reboot.

A:USB ports stopped working

Go to the HP Support/Download Drivers page and type in your make and model. Download the Chipset driver for your computer. Install that. If still having problems, go to Device Manager and uninstall everything under Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Restart. But now go into the Bios, here see if there is anything for USB or Legacy control. Disable this. Now restart the computer. You should have nothing listed for USB in the Device Manager. Now reboot, go back to the Bios and enable USB. Restart and the computer will reload all USB devices. If this still fails, the motherboard USB chipset has failed, and you will need a new Mobo.

Hi guys, after a bit of help because all of my USB ports on my FS Amilo laptop have stopped working after i installed win7.

Immediately after the installation they were ok, but since then they've all stopped working. Any device that is plugged in (Webcam, mouse, USB stick, regular camera) doesn't work, windows simply says 'the device is not recognized'. The error code is 43.

I've tried updating all the drivers, both through windows update and through the manufacturers' websites, but haven't found any updates, and i'm finding it hard to believe it can be the drivers if everything was running smoothly before.

Hi,
I've been working on this problem online with HP for over a week. They've given up and are shipping me a box to return the machine for them to fix at the factory. Before I give up the PC for the time it takes them to do that, I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has already successfully solved this problem.

My computer has stopped recognizing anything that's plugged into any USB port. Device manager says the ports are active and fully powered. We've tried re-installing the USB Root Hubs (anyone know why there are always two of them?) multiple times, upgraded the drivers, and in a last-ditch attempt to make everything like new again we reinstalled the operating system entirely to factory condition after backing up all our data to DVDs.

Still no recognition of anythign in a USB port. Printer says it's installed but nothing will print, flash drives are not recognized, nor camera or iPod. Interestingly enough it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem since the iPod WILL charge in the USB port just won't sync.

Has anyone seen this problem before?

Thanks.

A:Usb Ports Stopped Working

I can't say for sure, but if you've reinstalled the OS and still can't use the USB ports - then it's time for a repair/replacement. It sounds to me as if it's a partial failure of the USB ports (the data channel rather than the power) - but I don't know a whole lot about their construction. Sorta like one of the traces that the data travels is broken, and it's broken before the split to the different ports (but this is only speculation on my part).

I may have seen the same thing at work not long ago - but can't recall the make of the system. As I seem to remember, we shipped it off for repair at the service center.

Hi,

I am using an HP DV9310us laptop with Vista Home Premium SP1 32-bit, and an AMD Turion 64 TL-52 processor. (Let me know if you need any more info to troubleshoot)

A little over a month ago, I plugged in an old optical mouse to my laptop, which I had previously used on a much older desktop.

Almost immediately, I got a popup message saying "One of your USB devices is malfunctioning". The mouse didn't work in that port, so I tried another one. It worked for a few minutes, then I got the same message again. I unplugged the mouse and decided to give up. A few minutes later I started getting the same error message over and over again multiple times in rapid succession, with nothing attached to my usb ports. I wish I had written down or copied the exact error message, but I didn't, and now it's too late to remember the exact message. At that point, I was sleepy and I decided to deal with the problem the next day.

When I woke up and tried to plug in a different mouse (which was working on said laptop previously), I discovered that NONE of my USB ports were working at all. Since then, I have tried every fix I could find on the internet, on many different forums, and nothing has worked.

Upon further inspection, I noticed that the USB ports still supply power (sort of). For instance, when I plug in my usb hard drive, it lights up but doesn't spin, and nothing is recognized by the computer. When I plug in my Windows Mobile Phone with the usb charge... Read more

I recently acquired an HP Elite model H8-1050 and I reinstalled my OS from scratch (Custom Windows Ultimate). In the beginning the 2 3.0 ports on the top of the unit next to the stereo jack and mic port were working. After installing the OS, flashing my BIOS and updating all drivers they are no longer working by which I mean when I put a flash stick or other USB peripheral nothing happens. Now I'm pretty sure it's a software issue because the stereo out and microphone ports work fine and they are all a part of one piece of hardware and because they did work at some point. It's a fairly new device still long under warranty so I doubt it could have failed so quickly.

I looked in my bios but couldn't find any settings that relate to USB and in my Device Manager it shows no unknown devices. HP upper level tech support wasn't much help either and wanted me to reinstall my OS entirely or backdate my bios flash which is both crude and risky. For reference he tells me I have an IPISB-CH2 Pegatron Mobo. I used the bios flash and controller drivers directly from HP's website for my model. Any ideas? I'm wondering if there are separate 3.0 drivers I need. Google H8-1050 drivers (64bit) to see exactly what I used.

My ASUS X83VB has 5 USB ports. I have Windows 7 64 Bit, it was a clean install 3 weeks ago. It was working fine until today, I noticed that my Ipod Shuffle wasn't recognized when I plug it into a USB port (Device not successfully installed, Device manager shows a code 43). I tried another USB port, no luck. Tried one on the back, and it works. It turns out that the Shuffle only works on 2 of my 5 ports. That's not good.

So I did the usual routine of restarting, uninstalling / reinstalling the driver / iTunes, and uninstalling / reinstalling the USB driver. I even went as far as doing System Restore as far back as 11/23 (and I know it was working fine back then). Even the system restore didn't help (so I reversed the restore). Reckon it might be the Shuffle's problem, so I hooked it to another computer. Works fine as usual, so I know it's not the Shuffle. Then I unplugged the Microsoft mouse from my other computer (and the mouse works fine on that other computer), and plug it into this one. The mouse is not recognized for ALL USB ports. Awesome.

I realized once I turn on my computer and go to Device Manager (without plugging in anything), I still see an "Unknown Device" with that yellow triangle with and exclamation mark, and I can't get rid of it regardless of uninstalling, updating, or disabling the driver (and can't rollback since the button is faded).

Have you updated drivers or downloaded any programs in the last 2-3 days?

Can you see them in your device manager? computer>system properties>device manager (left)>Universial serial bus controllers (usb)
Any yellow triangles?

A system restore would more than likely fix it if your really stuck.

Hi,
It would be great if anyone has an idea what kind of problem I am dealing with here.
Two days ago, my USP ports just stopped working. I turned off my Toshiba Satellite A305-6829 in the evening, the next day I turned it back on, nothing.
I tried to connect my mouse and two different external hard drives, their light is on, so there is power, but the devices are not recognized.
In the device manager, it shows a yellow exclamation mark next to all the USB ports and under properties it says "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)".
I tried to uninstall the drivers and reinstall, it's still the same.
Is there anything else I can do? Is it likely to be a hardware problem? The laptop is only 4 months old and everything else works fine.
Thanks so much for any suggestions,

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.

NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse, you'll have to modify the instructions and leave enough parts for those to function. I don't have one yet, so I haven't had time to modify the instructions.

On my Hewlett-Packard 110-412na machine running Windows 8.1, the USB ports stopped working a couple of times recently

Since USB is the only interface between keyboard and rodent, and I waited 20 minutes or so, I had to switch the machine off and back on again.

I looked in Device Manager where everything looked ok (no yellow flags). The properties of all the devices stated that they are all working properly.

On the second occasion I was writing in Notebook, which doesn't have automatic saving, and lost a lot of work.

What might have been the cause of the USB shutting down?

A:USB ports stopped working.

Bad or missing driver. You can use Speccy from piriform.com to see what it shows.

Hello I'm new to this so I'll try my best to explain the problem. I have a wireless mouse that stopped working, the problem is when i plugged the wireless receiver in the USB port, the computer says "found new hardware" and hardware is installed and ready to use. The mouse works for a couple seconds but then after that they stopped moving, after I restarted the computer, the mouse still stands in the center on the screen, so I tried a different port the same thing happens and if I use the the USB port already the mouse won't even move for a few seconds. Its not the mouse's fault because I asked my neighbor to borrow his mouse(which is USB plug mouse) and the same thing happens just like my mouse. I tried to to see if its the USB devices' problems but I use my flash drive and it works so its not USB device's problem so I'm wondering if some one could help me with this problem.

Checked BIOS nothing obvious. I am considering downloading a new motherboard driver install. Can anybody help me please. Thanks.

The USB ports on my friend's laptop (HP Pavilion DV6000 running XP Home) randomly stopped working about a week ago. He hasn't made any changes to the system in some time. When you plug in a USB device, it gets power, but the computer doesn't recognize it. Here's what I've tried so far:

- Uninstalled all USB drivers from the device manager
- Unchecked the "allow computer to turn off this device" option under power management
- Installed newest version of the nVidia cihpset
- Made sure that USB is enabled in the BIOS
- Tried a registry fix found here - http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/673766-usb-ports-suddenly-stop-working.html

Unfortunately, nothing has worked. What worries me is that I also tried using an Ubuntu live cd, and no USB devices were recognized there either. I'm thinking that this might be a hardware problem which can't be fixed, but does anyone have any ideas on what to try before I declare this problem unfixable?

Hi,
I am in a spot of bother since I have to give an important presentation and all of a sudden my USB ports (3) in HP pavillion dv6(running windows 7 64 bit) stopped working. I plugged my friend's ipod touch to charge from the computer and it did not work and after that none of the ports will work. I tried reinstalling the drivers, restarted the computer multiple times and even ran a virus scan but its of no use. Out of the 3 ports only one says "windows detected a problem with the device", the other 2 wont even say anything. I even checked at the registry keys to see if the USB ports are enabled and they were fine. My warranty expired this December so now I have to pay HP for any trouble shooting.
Is there any simple fix to this solution which I am missing?
Thanks a lot for your time!

A:USB ports stopped working

Two possibility come to mind there may be more of course.

1. A USB port has become physically damaged
2. The port may be OK mechanically and the device damaged the electronics

I have a Dell 8700 and during a session loading music from iTunes, all USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports stopped working.  I tried rebooting and powering down and pulling power to no avail.  When I boot the computer, the lights on the Logitech keyboard/mouse wireless controller go on but as Windows 10 starts, they go off.

I can work with the computer because I have TeamViewer running.



I have a Dell 8700 running Windows 10 (Creators update). While transferring music to my ipad all USB ports suddenly stopped working, USB 2.0 and 3.0. I tried rebooting, shutting down and unplugging power for an hour but no help. I have a wireless Logitech mouse/keyboard. When powering up, the lights go on on the wireless controller until Windows 10 starts booting and then they go off. Any ideas on what the problem is? No yellow dots next to any of the USB items in the device manager.

Hello guys!
This error happens suddenly... All the USB devices and the ports are working, they are activated on the bios, but they don't work when the Windows starts... In the Device Manager it shows an exclamation on USB controllers an says about code 10...

If I remove all the devices and then "Check for new Hardware", windows recognize all of them and everything works fine... Bu is just restart the pc and the error returns...

I've already updated the BIOS from Motherboard (updated it from USB, worked 100%), but when entering in Windows.

I've tryied to look for some Drivers, but didn't find nothing about USB drivers for my MB and Windows is using the "generic" USB Controllers...

IThe MB is a Gigabyte GA-MA69VM-S2 (which is supported by Win7) and I'm using Windows 7 x64

Thanks guys

A:USB ports stopped working right...

How long have you been having this problem? Is this a new motherboard and a new installation of Windows 7? Did it work prior to upgrading (if you did) to 7?

My front and rear USB 3 ports stopped working. The rear USB 2 ports still work. When I plug an external HDD into the front USB 3 ports it powers up the drive, but it isn't recognized in Windows Explorer. My USB card reader doesn't light up. Device Manager doesn't show any USB 3 devices, and nothing is showing a yellow x in Device Manager.

Any ideas? The last time I used the front ports was a few weeks ago at most. There have been Windows 10 updates since then, but I don't know specifically when they stopped working.

Hi, all of my USB ports stopped working. I have a 9mth old Dell Inspiron 5759 with Windows 10 and all updates. In DEVICE MANAGER, it shows all USB drivers as up to date and running correctly. Have though about uninstalling/reinstalling them but were do i get the replacement drivers or will Win10 automatically see they're not there?
If i plug in my MP3 player it is not recognized at all and won't charge/sync. DEVICE MANAGER shows it as an unsupported device and says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28). A service installation section in this INF is invalid. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver." To my knowledge, the device does not have a specific driver and Sony does not provide one. I have never needed one previously.
If i plug in my phone I can charge but not sync. In DEVICE MANAGER, it shows as my phone like normal and says "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19).
Online, searching "Code 19" seems to apply to CD/DVD drives and mine will now not play CDs and I cannot see it in Win Media Player but I can see it in File Explorer and click on it but nothing plays. Music on my hard drive plays normally.
Any help anyone can give is greatly appreciated. Thanks. 
Russell

Look in your device manager and see if any USB devices have show to be not working or not installed. In any case try deleteing the USB Controller and letting Windows reinstall it.

I have the HP envy 23 all in one touch screen, the USB ports stopped working a few days ago. Everything worked fine last week. Anytime something was plugged into the USB port it was installed like it should with whatever pop-up came up, and it was disconnected properly as well. Does anyone know what I can do to get this issue fixed? I remember having to go through this before around 5 months ago and it seems like the support team deleted the USB list and then it added back when I restarted the computer.Any help is appreciated.Thank you!

Hey guys,

Earlier today my computer just stopped recognising my network adapter. Luckily, I've got a built-in one but it isn't any good because I only get about 25% of the actual speed I'm meant to. I've tried the following to fix it:
Restarting
Unplugging the power cable for 5 mins
Reinstalling it with device manager
Using the disc
Using a different USB port
Replacing the adapter

My computer is the Packard Bell iXtreme M5850. Can anyone help me try to fix this?

Might be worth noting that my peripherals all work in whichever slot I put them in. It seems that only the Netgear product seems to have stopped working. It is the Netgear WNA3100.

I regularly use USB flash drives. Today, they ALL stopped working on ALL ports. They are from Kingston and Cruzer, and I have two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port. When I plug in a flash drive, the drive letter I had assigned to it appears under This PC as a removable device, but if I click on the drive letter, I get a message, "Please insert a disk into [driveLetter]:." Also, there is no option to safely remove the drive; it's as if the drive isn't there at all! In device manager, in both Root USB Hubs and in the Generic USB Hub, I unclicked the checkboxes to have the computer turn off the device to save power. I restarted the PC, but that did not help. Could the problem be HP 3D Drive Guard? If so,is there a later version than March 2016? I reinstalled that one, but it did not help either. Has anyone seen this issue before? Thank you.
