Windows XP re-install problems

  Throbber 16:58 14 Dec 2008

After my hard drive died, I installed a new one and re-installed windows XP pro. All seemed to go well, but now the computer's card reader does not work [not shown] nor the front USB slots. The rear USB slots seem fine. Any ideas how I can get these back?

Go into Devices and un-installed ALL the USB ports, then re-start your computer - upon re-start, the USB ports should be recognised again.

Possibly you have dislodged a cable when you put the new hard drive in. Look close to the rear USB ports and any associated cables at the motherboard end. Also check by the front USB ports.
