What happens if you plug in a different USB device?

Does Windows tell you it has found equipment?

Try using the add hardware wizzard in Add/Remove hardware in the control panel.

See if you can force windows to find the USB controllers.

Is everything else working properly?

Can you see the USB host controller in the device manager?

What do you mean by "tried motherboards"?

There is no Universal Serial Bus controllers in the device manager (DM)..when i check my motherboard under (DM) there is an icon but it says there are no drivers installed! So i removed it and rebooted hoping it would reinstall its self...maybe giving me my usb back....that was a big negative.

I just did a system restore....stilll no luck!.......this problem is pretty weird.

Download Everest Home from oldversion.com

Get version 1.51 which has Software listing capability which successive versions have deleted.

Download here:
http://www.oldversion.com

Or -

AIDA, the predecessor to Everest still has the Software listings:


AIDA 32, The predecessor to Everest can be downloaded here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download181.html

You can also get a freeware version of Belarc Advisor, a similar benchmarking tool:

http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

Any one of the above will give you the capability to see exactly what is in your system and Everest will give you the link at which to download drivers.

See if it can detect any USB hubs, controllers, etc.

You may have a hardware problem.

Try getting a USB card that plugs into PCI slot.

They are even available with Bluetooth integrated.
