usb stop working

Specs: Windows XP
I recently noticed that my printer was not working and my back up external hard disk either. I have another printer that i plug in using another usb port and that printer also did not work as well any other device that I tried to attach in any of my sony vaio usb ports. Any idea how to get it resolved, please?

Check in Device manager to see if there is a problem with your USB controllers.

See system properties tab maybe to start.

See event viewer logs also.


Could be if an add on card it needs to be reseated.

Could be some usb item took too much current and it shut down.

Reboot computer.

Might need to un-install usb root and re-install it. Be sure you have the drivers.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
