    I recently upgraded from Windows NT 4 to Windows ME on my Dell 400 workstation. My USB ports no longer show up under the Device Manager list. When adding new hardware, Dell is not in the list of manufacturers. The USB ports are part of the Dell motherboard. What now?
    As a side note, I upgraded my laptop from Windows NT 4 to Windows 2000 and the USB port is fine.
