Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have 3 usb ports( two at the back and one on the

\015 I run Windows XP sp3 and I have an intel core duo 2.40 GHz. I have 3 usb ports( two at the back and one on the side ) and three devices: Microsoft webcam, HP printer and a Lexar Firefly 4GB. Most of the time only the webcam is plugged in and not necessarily in use.My usb ports stopped responding two days ago and only recognised my printer.\015\012\015\012I read a thread on fixya which advised to disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, by following these steps: 1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager. 3. In the Device Manager pane, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. 4. Right-click the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, and then click Disable. \015\012I did that and now both usb's at the back work but the side one is still dead. How can I get it to work again?Also, when I plugged my webcam into the usb port at the back which had been dead but after follwing the above steps, works again, I got a message that it could work faster on another port, which I guess is the one I disabled. But if I enable it, the cam doesn't work at all. What should I do? The Lexar memory stick is still ignored on all usb ports.Thank you.\015

Answers :

Check to see if something else will work on the side port. It may not necessarily be a dead port. Just something you should know too; I used to work for Wal-Mart in the electronics department and they had to recall all their firefly flash drives because they had a tendancy to malfunction. Try using it on a different computer, it might just be a dead flash drive. I hope this helps your problem and I hope your flash drive didn't have anything too important on it :x
