USB ports recognised by windows but won't work

  kinger 16:03 10 Jul 2006

Running Win XP with SP2 but none of the USB ports work.

In device manager they are 'working properly' but whatever I plug into the ports simply won't work.

The light on my mouse illuminates and the memory stick light comes on then off but then all is dead, no XP messages at all.

Anyone know of the cure for this, please?

You've already tried uninstalling them all, yes? If not, try that first.

Yes uninstalled, reinstalled.

Brand new OS installed.

Checked mother board and connections.

Mouse actually lights up but still won't work.

Have tried several USB components, none will even start being recognised.

Anyone else have any advice, please?

Inserted PCI USB as a temporary measure and it works fine.

Just can't use built in USB now.
