Acer Aspire USB Not recognized - XP to Vista Upgrade

\015 I have an Acer Aspire 5102 (came with XP)... it had a problem with hardware and was fixed by a collegue. Vista Business Edition has been install and working fine... except that the USB are not recognized (message error is shown when any USB is put into any of the ports). \015\012\015\012What do I need to get the USB to be read?\015\012\015\012I have installed and checked the drivers... they are there. Your help would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

I think that my chipset is broken somehow. I can't install other o.s. I tried with xp, xp media center, and even Ubuntu. These all crash.Tried many times to install Vista but USB does not work
Most likely a chipset problem as stated above then.
\015\012Ihave already had one chip-level service due to USB malfunction. If you're outside the warranty period it may be cheaper or better value to get a new laptop. Acer chip level service can be quite pricy.
