So here is my problem. I have a printer set up via USB. The printer stopped working and I figured it would just require a reboot, take out the USB and put it back in. When I did I noticed that nothing was recognizing. I then thought well maybe the USB cord went bad, so I grabbed a new one and that didn't work either. Then I took my laptop and plugged the printer into there. And it recognized the printer as new hardware. Perplexed, I took a USB memory stick and put it into the port and it didn't recognize. Now I think I have a problem with the USB ports on the front and back of the computer. Here is the strange part. The USB mouse and USB keyboard still work no matter what port I put them in... I tried restarting and restoring the computer several times and no matter what it won't recognize anything but the Mouse and Keyboard.
Is it possible that the USB drivers have locked up? Is there a way to flush all the USB drivers? Or do you know what is going on?
Thanks in advance.
