The USB 2.0 port however has a problem, it happens occasionally and randomly, and recently it has happened again. It is very annoying and I thought it was time I try to get advice on fixing it.
The USB 2.0 port sometimes just refuses to work, the mouse plugged into it is not seen by the pc and must be moved to another port, any USB sticks inserted into it are also ignored. This si sometimes cured by a restart, and sometimes not. I don't think this is OS specific, I've seen it on windows and not on linux but I don't think that means it can't happen on linux just that it hasn't by chance happened when I've been on linux.
What diagnostic steps do I take? How can I fix this?
