Neither of my 2 USB port work at present. This happen before but one of them came back of its own accord. Now both are permanently off. Any help gratefully accepted

I have had this happen to me. I believe there is a small fuse associated with each USB port. This is not repairable.

What I did was install a 4 + 1 port USB PCI card. These are quite cheap from somewhere like Scan.

Perhaps I should say, the last time it happened I rang Tech Support as machine was under guarantee. They were able to reset using Control Panel. However machine no longer under warranty and I do like paying £1.50/minute for to be kept hanging on for 15mins.

1. Ensure USB enabled in BIOS.
2. Check usb controllers under settings /control panel /system /hardware /device manager have you got a yellow mark against the controllers?
3. What operating system? need service pack 1 for usb2 in XP.
