Hi I have recently had problems with my laptop (tiny) win xp.In device manager there is nothing mentioning my usb host or my 4 usb ports and when i go into bios to check they are enabled there is no sign of the usb.Tried a complete reinstall but still no luck,any ideas.

It could be a fault with the laptop? Do any usb devices work when connected to the laptop?

I had a case recently where there was a surge on the power supply and it fried both the usb devices connected to the laptop, but the laptop was OK.

Sounds like a possible fault with the laptop. How old is it?
