Let me begin by saying many thanks to this site for all your help. I have learned much from reading the forums. Thanks to all!
I am running Windows XP Pro SP3 on my laptop with a AMD Sempron, graphics card is ATI Radeon Xpress 200M.
Every USB item that I try to plug in comes back as "unrecognized by Windows".
I have already tried to shutdown the PC and reboot, I checked Hardware manager and says all is ok for USB section and drivers are up to date. I removed drivers and re-installed them, I removed all USB items from Hardware manager and rebooted to have windows re-install them.
All windows updates are up to date. All hardware drivers are up to date. I even re-installed XP on a separate partition. Same problem in new partition.What else can I do before concluding that the hardware itself is defective and that its not a software issue?
I currently have no malware or spyware or trojans etc. PC is totally clean.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
