We have had an AMD Duron Processor with 995MHz, and 512MB of RAM for almost five years, and recently both of the rear USB ports have stopped working. :whistling: We had not installed any new upgrades, programs, etc prior to the USB quitting. When I look in the device manager it says everything is working properly, and i have reinstalled the drivers a couple times, every time saying it was installed sucessfully, and yet when I plug in an MP3 player that worked with the computer before, the computer does not show any signs of knowing it is plugged in. My brothers also have MP3 players, could they have damaged anything unplugging them without going to the "safely remove hardware" thing or is it unrelated. Please help as we have no front USB ports, so we currently have to do without using any USB devices.

Thanks

disconnect all usb devices

start > run
devmgmt.msc
<enter>

scroll down to Universal Serial Bus Controllers, expand the selection, right click each device and choose uninstall

Reboot.

Let windows start up as normal and it will redetect the usb controllers. It will take a little bit of time. Wait until it is done and then plug in a device

Hey, thanks for the reply but i already tried uninstalling, then shutting down and turning the computer back on, the computer then detected and installed everything on it's own, but the usb ports still do not work. :whistling: Any more ideas would be appreciated.

cmd
<enter>
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
cd \windows\System32 (note space)
start devmgmt.msc

go to VIEW > Show Hidden devices

Now expand USB devices

Expand each category and right click and choose UNINSTALL on anything grey

well,, it is possible that the usb ports have simply died--especially on an older system

Do you have a windows xp cd? If it were me, I would install a temp parrallel OS and see if they work there.

Also, start > run
regedit
<enter>

navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

also check
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

A lot of keys there? Do these ports work with anything at all, or just not mp3 players?

They don't work with anything. What do you mean by "alot of keys there"? I will look to see if we have the CD.
