    For a while now, I've had problems with USB devices, but today I was looking online and someone mentioned a solution to a problem I was having, saying to look in Device Manager under the Ports tree.
    My Ports tree in DM is gone, but I also don't know how to access my COM3 port or other ports any other way. Should the Ports tree be there?
    I've already restarted my computer and entered the BIOS menu, and it said my USB Ports were enabled.
    I've already been to the Registry Editor in Blah-Blah key and entered "3" (was already that way).
    My ports are just gone. What should I do?

    I don't understand much of what you're talking about, so can't help much, if at all.

    USB ports should be under 'Universal Serial Bus controllers.'

    For what are you using Com3? That's a serial port, isn't it?
