    Front USB 2.0 ports wont work during boot


    Oh boy, relieved i finally made headway. Annoyed it took so long.

    So i'm working on some bootable flash drives. Problem is, they were booting on one pc, and not the other. Both UEFI, both CSM off, both the same exact drives etc.

    I know the usb ports work as i use them relatively often (my front usb2 are closer than the 3 Front USB 2.0 ports wont work during boot :p)

    however for some reason during boot up, it would not see the drives if they were in the front usb 2.0 ports. Sees them in usb 3.0 ports fine.

    Does this have something to do with the hand-off type settings u often see in the bios? Any ideas?

    its a z370 asus board fwiw

    :)

  2. USB 2 port not working in Windows 10 on Samsung Notebook

    Hi Tomale,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    Since all the USB ports are working and the problem is with the USB 3.0 port in the right side of the laptop, then this issue is with that particular port.

    You can contact the manufacture of the laptop to get it done.

    As a workaround, I suggest you to Run Hardware troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow these steps to run hardware troubleshooter.

    • Type troubleshooting
      in search box.
    • Select view all on the top left pane.
    • Click on Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter and follow the prompts to
      run the troubleshooter.

    Thanks.

    Then select the standard driver from the list and click next:

    Click next/OK as required to complete installation. Repeat the steps for all Intel USB devices. Finally click on each USB root device and press DEL to delete it, reply YES when asked. After deleting all USB root devices restart the computer.

    I hope this is detailed enough...

    Front USB 2.0 ports wont work during boot

    No USB ports working on toshiba laptop

    Hi guys,

    Got an old Toshiba laptop, satellite l500d pslk0a-00r009
    Its old and doesn't officially support win10. However I have it installed and everything works fine except USB. All the ports seem completely dead, plugging in a USB mouse I get no light on the mouse. USB flash drives don't work either. This was previously working under win7.

    The issue seems to be I don't have "Generic USB hub" in device manager. Have tried to manually install it using add legacy hardware but it wont take. I have several USB root hub and others listed, but not the generic hub.

    Here's what I have tried so far:

    Uninstall all USB device in device managers and reboot
    Confirmed BIOS is latest version
    tried both legacy and compatibly USB mode in BIOS
    Download and install generic win10 USB drivers
    Disable USB power saving mode
    Installed toshiba's service center, no updates available
    Ran MS troubleshooter/fixit

    I think the next step is to give up, but does anyone else have any suggestions?

    thanks
