  1. Registry repair, USB ports not working...


    Long story short i watched some YouTube videos about "how to make your computer faster" and ended up changing some stuff in my laptops registry. Shortly after that my USB ports stopped working completely and i started getting an error saying, "power surge on the USB ports." I have tried reinstalling/ updating drivers and all kinds of other stuff but nothing is working. If i have to ill try to replace the usb ports but how do i diagnose the registry or whatever caused the power surge in the first place. Nothing i plug into the laptop will show up in "This PC". I have a Lenovo ideapad 320 running windows 10 home. Any help would be much appreciated!!! thank you!!!

    :)

    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...

    USB ports not working in Windows 10

    Hello ruthives,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    To address your concern, kindly help us with the below questions.

    1. What is the make and model of the computer?
    2. Do you read any error message when you connect the device to the USB port?
    3. Are you facing this issue with any particular USB port or with all the USB ports?
    4. Since when are you facing this issue?

    Your device is kept up to date with the latest features by automatically installing the updates in Windows 10. To narrow down the issue, let's go ahead and follow the below methods and see if it helps.

    Method 1: I would suggest you to follow the steps to diagnose and repair the USB ports from the article -

    Automatically diagnose and fix Windows USB problems.


    Method 2: Update USB controllers.

    • Right click on the Start menu and select Device Manager from the list.
    • Narrow down to Universal Serial Bus controllers and update all the USB drivers.
    • To update the drivers, right click on the each driver and select Update driver.
    • If that doesn't resolve the issue, I would suggest you to uninstall all the USB drivers from the device manager.
    • Reboot the PC and it will automatically pick for the latest drivers for your PC.

    If the issue persists, download and install the latest USB drivers available for your PC build from the
    manufacturer's website and see if it works.

    Hope it helps.
