the motherboard is aN SE440BX-3 AA722396-111, should I just open the pc and have a look? I was hoping it was something simple eg a fuse and sods law I was thinking of buying that keyless mouse and keyboard from lidl!!
they have stopped working and only noticed it today when i went to print on colour printer, thought oh well just re-boot so i used lpt1 black and white printer and thought nothing of it. It was only tonite I noticed the lights had gone out on the usb hub!! I switched ports and still no power to hub.
2 usb ports at back of tower situated near top ie just below mouse/keyboard, looked in device manager and no exclamation marks!
I did do scandisk, defrag and disk cleanup at weekend.
In device manager I have 2 entries under usb controller.
Thanks for replies but I am still stumped.
NB I did hear some funny noise from HD at weekend!!
thanks for quick reply, i am not too techie so do I just go to device manager, click on usb controller, then right click and click remove?? I take it the system will find the drivers on the win98se disc?
am I on the right lines? And did I do something wrong for this to happen?
My USB's failed the other day. Panic ensued for a minute or two, then I pulled the USB printer lead out of the computer socket, plugged it back in and it worked. Don't ask for an explanation, it just started to work again
