  1. USB ports


    I am unable to get my USB ports to be recognized on my computer. I have a Lenovo ideapad 320. It has Widows 10. The person who gave it to me feels that the original settings on new computers are too full of things that slow the computer down so he redid it all and ive had to figure out how to get the dvd player to play. I think I figured that out. Now im trying to add a printer. It is wireless but im using the USB cord because I don't know where the original disk for the printer is. Ive tried all the ports on the computer and none of them are responding. Please help!!! Im so upset about all of this and feel like I should just get a new computer sometimes as I got this for school and keep running into issues.

    Im not sure if this is the right group to post this in or not.

    :)

    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...

    Hi Frank,

    Inserting and removing a USB device repeatedly may cause the USB port to stop responding. When the port is in this state, it no longer recognizes any USB device, and the USB device will not work.

    Here are few things that you can do to resolve the issue:

    Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes. After your computer scans for hardware changes, it might recognize the USB device that is connected to the USB port so that you can use the device.

    To scan for hardware changes, follow these steps:

    • Click Start, and then click Run.

      Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
    • Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
    • In Device Manager, click your computer so that it is highlighted.
    • Click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
    • Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

    Turn off Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

    • In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers, right-click USB Root Hub, and then click Properties.
    • In the USB Root Hub Properties dialog box, click the Power Management tab. Uncheck the
      Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power
      box.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested troubleshooting steps.
