Hi guys. I usually have a webcam plugged into one of my usb ports on the front of my computer. The other day I removed it and tried to put in another usb device (portable hard drive) and nothing will get recognised. I restarted the computer and now the whole "removable disk F" option in my computer is gone :S
In device manager there is ayellow mark next to USB Composite device and I can't update the drivers as it says none can be found. I need my usb ports :thumbsup:
Any help would be greatly appreciated :flowers:

Hey bill,

Have you tried enabling the USB Hub? What type of yellow mark is it? Exclamation Point? Question Mark?

If you cannot, it may have been disabled in your BIOS.

What's the make of your computer?
