They were working fine last night, I was charging my Ipod. Unplugged it, and later tried to use a flash drive. Neither of the ports would work. No messages even pop up. I disabled and then enabled all ports. Nothing. I uninstalled all USB drivers and turned computer off. Took out battery for about 10 minutes, turned computer back on, and it automatically installed all drivers for USBs. Phone cord USB does nothing. Laptop can tell sometimes when I plug in my Ipod, but all it does it ding (plugged in) then ding (unplugged). I ran a virus check. Nothing. Just installed 3 Windows updates.

Please any help?

Howdy,

My guess is this is a laptop.....have you tried System Restore to a date when the USB ports where working..

and some info on the PC might help...make model etc

Understand.....

I would try system restore first to a date a bit before this happened if you have one.

Start>>All Programs>>System tools>>System Restore

And now tonight, they are working with my phone USB...? Weird! I didn't try system restore yet, but I will if they quit working again. Thanks for your input:)

Sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't. But I have found that one my phone USB will work at times. When it does not, I uninstall, and turn computer off. Then it will work. I can not attach my external or my ipod. I did a system restore. Still the same story:(
