Usb not working windows 7 Tags: Windows 7 USB Last response: August 13, 2012 12:06 AM in Windows 7 Share ramsk August 5, 2012 11:26:59 PM I have a win 7 lenovo. The USB ports do not detect mouse and flash drives. But they work when I use Linux (I use Fedora 16, dual boot). How do get it working? PS: I tried uninstalling ports in device manager and rebooted the system but the problem continues to exist.
