Hello all,
My USB ports on my computer are not working. I had a problem earlier where i had to reinstall windows. After that i ran into a problem where my printers would not work. The printers are now fixed but none of my USB ports work. What can I do to try and fix this problem? I am running Windows XP Pro.

JC

I did as you stated and did not see any "yellow blobs."

The only thing listed under disk drivers was: Mactor 6Y120L0

Under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" there was a yellow blob next to "Standard Enhanced PCI TO USB" I install those drivers and everything works now.

Thanks for your help, I really apprechiated it.
