Usb's Don't Work!!!

My USB plugs on my laptop don't work. Every device I plug in, it says "Unrecognized Device".

I don't know what to do. Please HELP!
Thanx, Jacques

  1. Try Start/Control Panel/Device manager/USB controllers.
    Start at the bottom and uninstall all the usb devices.

  2. TRIED IT.

    Well, any other suggestions????
  3. Have you done a Windows update recently, can you try a system restore?

    Have you tried your usb items on another machine to make sure they are ok.

    Just to confirm have they been working ok and when did they stop working?
  4. Let me tell you my complete story...

    I was partitioning my laptop, and all of a sudden a black screen. I forgot to plug in my power. After that drama, for some reason I couldn't install win 7. So I installed XP, then Vista (And did an update there.) Finally I could install 7! :bounce:

    But... My USB's didn't work!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:
  5. I would download the appropriate hdd software and hard format the drive, write zero's.

    Then re install windows 7.
  6. Thank you so much! I will try it, and reply to you.
  7. Do you know your drive make and model?
  8. And what exactly do u mean by "HDD software" and is a hard format like overwriing the hd with blank data?
  9. I don't know what my make + model is. Can probably see this in device manager?
