no USB ports RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer was running so slow I did a disk cleanup witch helped a lot. But when I tried to print something there were no USB ports loaded. I uninstalled and reinstalled my printers but still no ports. When I opened up Device Manager the page was blank. I tried system restore but would not go back. I realize i'm still using XP but hope there's a fix.

  • Hi trophybill.

    The USB ports are managed by the motherboard's chipset, so you could try reinstalling the chipset drivers.
    If you need to repair your Windows installation, you could either perform an in place upgrade or a repair installation of Windows XP: read here to know how to do that.
