Specs: Windows XP
Hi there,

my usb ports have stopped working all together. what happened was that yesterday i connected my blackberry to the computer. the device manager did not recognize it, but still the mobile charged (usually it needs to be connected to the device manager). this was strange but now when i try to connect my plug and play webcam, which was working just fine day before yesterday is also not showing.

Please Please any help will be appreciated. In dire need to fix this problem.

... this may help Download the DevCon package now (<< click)

... copy the file (devcon.exe) to C:\ ie. open My Computer then open C:\ drive copy file here

... then click "start" run (type) CMD [press enter]

... in the command prompt (type) C:\devcon rescan [press enter]

... devcon should find and actuate your usb ports, worth a try!
