  • Hi Guys,

     

    I have a major problem. after reinstalling vista again. My usb ports dont work. i searched for the usb in device manager with nothing listed anywhere!!! I need to install a usb driver! where can i get one for vista?! I tried everything i could think of from reinstalling the chipset to reinstalling service pack 1 again. still nothing. the hardware wizard doesnt even have a usb generic driver. I am out of ideas! please help.

  • Hi James,

     

    USB controller driver is generally contained in motherboard/chipset one. BIOS version is also a factor that may affect the USB controller function.

     

    In this case, go to the manufacturer’s website and install the most updated drivers for BIOS, chipset/motherboard.

     

    If the problem persists, check the USB port with other devices, in order to confirm if this is an USB port or USB device related issue.

  • Thank you for your reply. In the meantime i checked system services and it came up as all usb related hardware as disabled! i got into system services to make the services auto or manuel but it still comes up as disabled. I will check the bios of the motherboard as suggested maybe thats the answer. It might take a while for me to check it out so i suggest the recommended advice should be followed by anyone having the same problem as me.I will mark it as the answer later if it works.

     

    thanks a bunch
