My computer is a bad thing as it first burnt out the Processor and i got that replaced and now it has stopped me from
using USB memory sticks or USB external hard drives...
This is how it happend.. I had my computer on and i was using it for most of the day then i stopped playing it,
My friend came over and brang his laptop and he wanted some software i had, So i got my external hard drive and plugged it into my computer and all of the sudden it said USB Device not recognised, Must be a malfunction in device please replace device, im like how did that happen? i got a bit worryed as i had over 100gb of important stuff on it,
So i quickly went and plugged it into my laptop and it was actualy fine, then i tryed it in my friends laptop and it was fine. so then i got a USB thumb drive (memory stick) and tryed it on my computer again and it had the same result yet the thumb drive was working fine.
after that i figured well it must be a error so i wiped my computer as my disc that came with the computer diddnt have any components for the usb ports,
I have just wiped my computer and its still doing the same thing... Can anybody help or give any ideas??
Also im using a USB mouse and that works fine for some reason.
