O.K., I think Iíve tried everything I know. None of my USB devices get recognized, camera, mp3 player, webcam, I plug them in and nothing, nada, zip. No error message either. If I go to the respective program and try to manually use the device Iíll get a message like ďcamera is not plugged inĒ. Iíve tried many devices with many cables but the computer just doesnít see it.
Hereís what Iíve done to try and rectify: The USBís (2 of them on and all-in-one motherboard) show up in device manager, they are indicated as working. I have uninstalled and re-booted, I have searched for updated drivers, (drivers are up to date) I have gone into the BIOS and they are there and configured. Iíve searched forums and where I have found a similar problem, there has never been a solution other than what I have already tried. I did see a suggestion about clearing NVRAM but found no feedback indicating this would help or what it involved.
Appreciate any suggestions.
