I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop and two days ago all the usb ports and my SD slot stopped working. I went to plug in my external hard drive and an sd card to back up photos and they both stopped working. Not just the usb port that I was using, but all 4 of them are not working. They have not worked since, even with a shut down, or restart. I have windows XP. Not sure what else to put here, but appreciate any help.

Okay, odd...they are all working now. I guess, is there anything I can do to make sure this doesn't happen again?

Glad it worked itself out.

Unfortunately there are any number of reasons this may have occurred. Having had it self correct makes it almost impossible to trouble shoot and prevent it from maybe happening again.
