  1. USB Ports stopped working after windows update


    Hi, I updated my computer yesterday and noticed that all my devices Mouse, Keyboard... have stopped working. Im guessing the update messed up my usb drivers somehow... I opened the device manager and checked and I noticed a yellow warnign sign on one of them:It says: This device cannot start. Code 10{Operation Failed}The requested operation was unsuccessful.I have also tried uninstalling them and restarting my computer but it didn't do anything. They are also the latest versions.is there anything I can do to fix this?

    :)

    USB 2.0 Ports Stopped working

    Hello,

    I recently noticed my USB 2.0 ports have stopped working, but my USB 3.0 port is functioning perfectly.

    Steps i have tried:

    - Restarting

    - Searching for device changes in Device manager

    - running troubleshooter

    all these suggested fixes didn't remedy the issue, its a bit of an inconvenience that i only have one functioning USB port

    Thanks

    Check the N97's USB cable for signs of damage at the USB end, and inspect USB ports on your mobo/case for signs of damage. Could be a short caused by damaged USB port. Gotta have good eyes when checking USB ports...

    If you only installed the drivers for your N97 yesterday, there may be a conflict where the N97 driver installation came with some drivers that are conflicting with your USB drivers. Can you get a PS/2 keyboard? If there's no signs of damage to your cables/USB ports then the next step would be Device Manager.

    I hang my head in stupidity... :shadedshu

    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.
