Card Reader and USBs Missing

  watchall 13:21 05 Dec 2008

Can ANYONE help. My Build in USB ports and Build in card reader have just stopped working.

My computer is an Advent T9201 desktop.

I'll start with the Card reader. It's build into the computer. When you click on "My Computer" you would normaily see card icons but now nothing.

Here's an image i've ringed where the icons would be.

If you put a card into the reader a little green light comes on but nothing happens.

As for the USBs All build in too and None work at all. Connect any devices to the ports and nothing happens. I can still charge my psp through the ports but that's it.

Here's an image of the device manager.

I've tryed uninstalling and even re-formated the hard drive 3 times. Nothing.

Can anyone help ?

In DEvive Manager uninstall the USB drivers and restart the computer

You need to un-install ALL of your USB items in Devices (as per your image) - right-click on each one in turn and click on un-install. When all have been un-installed re-start your computer. Your USB devices will then automatically be re-installed.

Hey thanks for your reply. Sadly i already did that. But nothing. I will try again though.

Often this is a static problem. Turn off the power rocker switch on the back of the pc. hold down the "power on" button on the front of the pc for 1 minute then release. Turn the power back on via the rocker switch on the back of the pc. hopefully you'll have your devices back.

Sorry i should have stated to perform the steps outlined with the pc switched off. after the final step just boot as normal and usb devices may return.

Refresh USB Ports
Use Drive clean up to remove USB device drive info from the registry
click here
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.

All was working great untill the other night when i connected my psp to the USB port then nothing. USB ports and card reader just stopped. I can still charge the psp and when i put a card into the card reader it lights up green but nothing.
