Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9200 Notebook ?

I have a Dell Inspiron 9200 running Windows XP pro. The other day I was running an external hard drive through a USB port...and since then...all my USB ports will not recognize ANY device. They run power through to the device but will not recognize or install them. All 4 ports are shot. I have tried uninstall/reinstall'ing them through the device manager and it has not helped. Please help.


Answers :

A remedy would be buying a card that goes into a slot on this pc that has usb ports- giving that a shot will help you other then that the motherboard would need to be replaced at this point the cheap way out would be to just by a card- Thanks
