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.

TIA

You may need to try removing all the USB components in the device manager and reboot.If this doesn't work you might need to do a clean install of your OS.

removed all USB devices and reboot didn't help. But for a brief second my mouse worked but all USB ports stopped working again (weird). As I said, the ports work like a charm on linux, this is an annoying win7 issue.

TIA
