I Want To Share A File Through Pen-drive, But My Acer Aspire One USB Ports Are Not Working
USB ports have been a convenient way to transfer data and use external devices. A variety of issues may cause a USB port to appear broken, including power surges, outdated driver software, and incompatible devices. The solution to fix the Acer Aspire One USB ports not working is that the user has to go into Device Manager and verify that the USB port is flagged with a yellow exclamation mark. Right-click on the Start button >> Device Manager >> Universal Serial Bus controller, then uninstall the driver flagged with a yellow exclamation mark.
Now, reboot the system and go to Acer’s support site and locate your laptop’s model and verify for any pending drivers. Make sure that the USB drivers and BIOS are updated. If the update is available, then download the driver and install it. Go to Device Manager >> Universal Serial Bus controllers >> USB Root Hub >> Properties >> Power Management tab. Uncheck the option Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power and click on OK, then reboot the laptop. If it will not work, then disconnect all connections from the laptop and unplug the AC adapter, then disconnect the battery of the laptop and press the power button for at least 15 seconds to discharge all power. Reconnect using an AC power adapter without the battery, and power-up, then check the USB is restored.
Power down and retry the above process with the battery connected as well as the AC adapter. If the laptop’s version has an internally mounted battery, then the user has a small reset hole located at the bottom of the laptop. Flip the laptop, and by using a paperclip, insert it into the battery reset pinhole. Then the laptop sits that way for 5 minutes, and in between, connect the AC adapter and power up the laptop to see USB ports gain functionality.
