Right yesterday I decided to upgrade from XP Home to XP Pro, everything was working fine before. When I upgraded it was working OK until I upgraded all the Service Packs. Nothing comes up in My Computer. It is not picking up my USB Hard Drive, my printer or my flash drive. Normally when I plug something in you hear the bell sound then it comes up but now nothing happens. I have been to the Device Manager theres no exclamations next to the USB's, I updated the drivers still nothing. I went to Disk Management and I still can't seem to pick it up. I have answered the questions below to help you help me...

1. Do other USB devices work on the system? NO
2. Is USB enabled in BIOS setup? YES
3. Is the BIOS up-to-date? NOT SURE
4. Have updated device drivers been tried? YES
5. Are any USB hubs being used? NO
6. Is the PC in question a portable (laptop/notebook)? YES

Also included is my System Information:

IRQ 0 System timer OK
IRQ 1 Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard OK
IRQ 3 ALi Fast Infrared Controller OK
IRQ 4 Communications Port (COM1) OK
IRQ 5 Conexant AC-Link Audio OK
IRQ 6 Standard floppy disk controller OK
IRQ 8 System CMOS/real time clock OK
IRQ 9 Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System OK
IRQ 10 RADEON IGP 345M OK
IRQ 10 VIA Rev 5 or later USB Universal Host Controller OK
IRQ 10 VIA Rev 5 or later USB Universal Host Controller OK
IRQ 10 Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller OK
IRQ 10 National Semiconductor DP83815-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter OK
IRQ 11 O2Micro OZ6912 CardBus Controller OK
IRQ 12 PS/2 Compatible Mouse OK
IRQ 13 Numeric data processor OK
IRQ 14 Primary IDE Channel OK
IRQ 15 Secondary IDE Channel OK


I have a Compaq Presario 2500 with the following specs:
Pentium 4
2.66 GHz Processor
704 MB RAM
Windows XP Professional Edition, Service Pack 2

Please help me.....

THanks

What's with this "upgrade" to XP Pro? It offers nothing majorily obvious from Home, nothing that most people will see anyway.

And what's your source for this XP Pro?

XP pro offers some usefil features for those who are uber geeks and offers a fairly significant boost in efficeincy and boot times.

run sfc /scannow with the cd in you may just be missing some drivers.
