Can anyone help? In device manager USB port is coming up as unknown device. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still comes up as unknown. My usb port isn't working now.

If this is not working try a second usb port. If that 1 works wat u shouly do is buy a usb hub.

A usb hub will change 1 port 2 up 2 4 or more ports.

I hope this will help.

I do have a usb hub but neither of the ports seem to be working. I hope that I haven't wrecked my ports, I need my printer.The usb hub is in the device manager.

Have you checked whether USB devices are enabled in the BIOS setup ?

Sorry to sound dumb. How and where would I check?

Thanks
