Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Dell GX270 running XP pro.8 USB ports (6 on back,2 on front) all stopped working.most of them still show power coming through when I plug in a mouse,and device manager says everything is good to go,but none of them will run anything.I checked all the settings I am familiar with,and they all say no problems.What am I missing?


Answers :

Left click start, left click control panel, left click system icon, left click device manager, on all USB Root items right click and uninstall, each USB item in the list restart the computer the OS should auto detect each one again. No worries don't be alarmed about performing this task its standard troubleshooting for the USB Root Driver. Once all USB line items reappear check your peripherals that are connected to see if the items are working now. If not perhaps flashing the bios could help, visit support.dell.com and enter your tag number for your desktop GX270 and download the latest bios driver follow the instructions carefully for flashing the bios.
