Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

USB ports don't recognize plug-ins

\015 My computer has stopped recognizing any plug-ins that I try to use. All of the plug ins worked before, but now it won't recognize anything. I don't think there was any updates to Windows, but I'm not sure since it updates automatically. Usually when I boot up my machine i get the pop up at the bottom of my screen saying USB Malfunction/Device not recognized, but I don't even have anything plugged into it anymore. Also, I tried buying an express card with 2 USB ports built into it but my computer won't recognize the card either. Any help would be appreciated. I have Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2.\015

Answers :

Latest BIOS and Chipset update would be very helpful to resolve the issue. Especially BIOS update contains very important fixes and enhanced functions. Latest release is 4/2/2007 dated. If yours older than this you can update. After BIOS update you can also update the chipset if issue persists. Here is the link for all drivers you need.
