Having problems with your HP Pavilion a6600f Desktop PC ?
Have "new" HP desktop. USB drivers not able to repair
\015 All USB ports, died. \015\012They worked at the outset, and then the computer sat while I used my laptop for my biz. Went to plug up my WD5000 ext HD to do a xfr of data into the desktop, and blam, drivers dead, and non repairable. HP wants me to do a bench repair, but that means sending it off for about a week. Any suggestions beyond uninstall/reinstall (doesnt work), full recovery (wipes out my important mail and cant back it up), restarts, earlier restore points (didnt bring them back) and other common fixes will be very welcome. And thanks for any help from good sources. :)\015

It's only a cuople months old, so I can get a new one, but even though THEIR device went bad, they want to charge me $1700 to restore data!!! Unbelievable!
