Hi playero2007.

You might be able to reinstall the USB drivers by rescanning the PC hardware:

Start > Control Panel > Add Hardware > Next

If asked "Have you already connected the hardware ?", say "Yes". If XP indicates that it has found the USB hubs and wants to search for the drivers automatically then let XP do that.

__________________________________

It's also possible that your motherboard has special, additional drivers for the USB. Go to the PC manufacturer or the motherboard manufacturer and search for any drivers related tothe USB. If any, download and install them.

What type of USB device are you trying to use? Depending on the device you may have to enable the USB function in the BIOS.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Do you have service pack 2 installed on this computer?
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

I'm only a newbie, and I had this same problem. The cost-effective/ energy preserving solution was to buy a USB 2.0 PCI card. It has 4 USB ports and solved my issues. It cost 14.99. If all else fails, this will at least allow you to utilize your peripherals.

Sincerely,
flightschool.

Have you downloaded the drivers for your camera, phone etc? It maybe worth you re-installing them again?
