I am having problems with my usb connection on all ports X4 on my Dell Inspiron 5150, opened the case to look inside and disconnected it. when i tried to start it up again, all i get is a flashing light on the startup button and thats all. Apart from disconnecting it plus the other connections, mouse keyboard etc, i never touched a thing.

something may have been disloged when you took the case off. try opening it up again and disconnecting all wires and reconnecting them again.

have you closed it correctly? some Dell pcs have a microswitch which prevents it starting without the case being properly closed.
