About 2 weeks ago my USB ports stopped responding out of the blue. I tried so many things and none have worked. But, I plugged my speakers into the USB port and they worked. So I know that is working. But that is the only thing that worked in the port.
I tried several things including
-Uninstalling/reinstalling in device manager
-Tried to use all other ports in back
-Tried system restore
-Tried disk error checking
-Plug and play is on
-Bios-USB - ENABLED
-Scanned for Viruses (Removed many)
-tried many different USB ports and devices. (all work on other computers and this one previously)
(I will update using my comments)
I have Windows XP SP3,
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.07Ghz, 896MB RAM
[For additional help]
My disk defragmenter says "disk defrag will not start"
My Disk-Error checking will not start, when I try in cmd (chkdsk /f) I have to reboot, When I do it tells me that "CHKDSK cannot scan RAW drives"
I have tried safe mode for this list as well. I will not restart from scratch.
I have tried to connect to my USB:
-2 different flash drives
these have worked before and currently on other systems. So they work.
