No USB Controller tree in XP Device Manager

\015 In trying to get a new device recognised on a Serial port on my IBM NetVista 8318 running XP Home, I altered the serial port Bios entries from "Enabled" to "Automatic".\015\012\302\240After re-booting I found that none of my USB ports were working (4 front, 2 rear).\302\240\015\012All Bios entries for USB are good but USB does not now exist in the XP Deviice Manager.\015\012I have restored Bios Serial ports to "Enabled".\015\012I have plugged and unplugged USB devices and done several reboots of the system with no effect.\015\012How can I get XP to recognise my USB ports ?\015

Answers :

Hi!
\015\012Windows operating systems include native support for devices and systems that comply with the Universal Serial Bus (USB) specification.
\015\012Click Start, click Run, and in the Run dialog box, type:
devmgmt.msc
\015\012Do you see the first one? You can try and get it to update its drivers. if not, all USB drivers are in the service pack 1.
\015\012let me know!
Thanks Mastersage for your response.
However, I have just found the answer to my problem posted by 'think.correctly' on Ozzu Webmaster Forum. Here is that thread text :

"no
, what i was saying, is that that entire tree, the one that shows all of the usb ports installed on the computer was not there."\015\012
\015\012
"however, i solved the problem. i remembered i had a similar problem\015\012a little while ago when my dell wlan network adapter conked out. it was\015\012because something got changed in the bios. so all i had to do was "Load Optimized Deaults"\015\012
i dont know what it changed, all i know is that it worked."\015\012

"Press Del when you first turn on your computer. Find the "Load\015\012Defaults" or "Load optimized Defaults" and press Enter and it will ask\015\012you if you are sure. Press Y and then Save and Exit."\015\012
\015\012
"Sometimes it isn't Del, some BIOS manufacturers use different ones.\015\012You could be able to find out as when the computer first starts up and\015\012is doing its memory test down the bottom of the screen it should say\015\012something like "Press X to enter Setup" or "Press X to enter the BIOS" "

I shall be forever grateful to 'think.correctly' for this so simple solution to a problem which has cost me a significant part of my life !
