Help please.....all of my USB ports have stopped working since I plugged in a digital picture frame a week ago. I have tried every fix that Microsoft help center has recommended. I restored to an earlier date. I uninstalled all the USB ports in the 'device manager', then restarted my computer. I ran the latest update for my BIOS. Checked my BIOS to make sure USB was enabled. Checked my registry to make sure the USB wasn't powered down. Any other suggestions?


If your ports are going through a PCI card I guess its possible that the card could have been fried (burnt out), although this is unlilnkely from a simple plugging in of a digital picture frame. Do you leave your PC running, or use lots of USB hubs w ... PC Desktops

I own a hp pavilion slimline s3100n computer. Yesterday I turned it on and it kept freezing on me, so I did a system recovery and that helped nothing. Now when I turn it on the blue power light comes on indicating there is power going to it but nothing will boot up. Any assistance with this issue would be much appreciated. Also the yellow light that shows whether its loading is not lighting up.
