\015 The usb port on my dell inspiron 5160 laptop wont pick up or register that any device is plugged in .i have tried uninstalling the usb device manager and then rebooting but still not working.what coul it be any solutions please.\015

Answers :

Does this laptop have more than one USB port?
If so, have you tried the others?
You could obviously see the USB port in device manager--this means the system thinks the device is there. so--it's not a software problem
You can't make it see any device--this means it's a hardware problem.
Most likely a USB connection to the motherboard problem.
So--what to do? Replace the motherboard.
Probably costly from Dell, but affordable on e-Bay.

If the solution proves helpful to you, be sure to rate it, please.
Remove the drivers then shut down your computer wait 30 secs then turn it on.Windows will reinstall the drivers.They may have become corrupted.If they still won't work try updating the drivers! You can try updating the drivers first and if that doesn't work ,do the remove and restart your computer!To remove or un- install the drivers right click on "My Computer" and select properties.then device manager.Finf the usb ports and uninstall them then restart your computer! 

Each component in your laptop as an IRQ adress if you have installed any hardware recently it may have taken over your USB's IRQ address.go to the control panel click on system peformance then performance and maintenance.when you are on this you should see about six tabs at the top of the window click on hardware then go to device manager at the left hand side of your screen you should see the words IRQ addresses,make sure that your USB ports have a IRQ address assigned to them.only use IRQ addresses which arent being used by other components,i know it sounds complicated but print this out and take your time..

If its a hardware problem, replacing the USB sockets may not be enough, considering they all went at the same time, I would say its a problem on the mother board. Something might have fused with the heat. Laptops have a real problem keeping cool because they are so compact.

Is it still under warranty? Return to vendor. If not claim under home contents insurance, you may have to be creative on the claim form. "It may have been from a power spike or something."
