  1. USB ports suddenly not working anymore


    Left my laptop alone for roughly 10 minutes, came back to all my plugged in devices ( mouse, portable drive) not working. replugged everything in every port, noone worked.

    what ive tried:

    -Device Manager update of the usb hub, reinstall etc. No exclamation mark or anything next to the icons

    -Factory reset of pc(keep files, reset settings etc)

    -Windows Updates install

    Things to know:

    The device is a Asus ROG STRIX G531G Gaming laptop.

    the pc was left on when I left it alone.

    when I plug anything in, unlike a lot of people, it does not even trigger a pop-up saying that its not recognizable. It literally does nothing.

    Sick and tired of this entire thing, hope someone can help.

    :)

    Please test USB ports with a bootable windows 10 iso.
    Then if necessary advance to the next step in the prior post.

    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...
