    Hi,
    Hope this is the right category! The other night I was using my webcam and usb mouse. All I did was log out of Skype, and the next morning, suddenly there was no action with the usb port. No mouse, webcam not detecting! Nothing! Any suggestions as to what happened or how to fix it? Thanks in advance! Oh, I am running Windows 7 on an emachaines E725 laptop. Thanks!

    Try forcing Windows to re-install the built-in USB drivers:

    Unplug USB mouse & use touchpad instead for this task:

    Control Panel > Device Manager

    Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    Right-click each USB entry in turn and choose "uninstall".
    Now restart Windows & it will re-install all of them.

    Have you tried other USB ports?

    Make/model? Laptop/desktop?

    Was the machine on all night?
