Advent 7083 - No usb ports are working.

  Mada_knips 22:54 03 Jan 2008

I have a two year old Advent 7083 Notebook, out of warranty. All of the usb ports have stopped working, although it does seem like something is recognised when something is put in one of the ports, although nothing happens.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the the ports, and all of the diagnosis reports come back fine, with no errors. I have recovered the notebook, and the ports still do not work.

I have been told to try and download drivers from the internet, although i don't know where to look for these.

Any help is very much apreciated.

I've tried installing this driver anyway, and it still isn't working.
I have heard that it could be the motherboard. Does anyone know anything about this?
