My pc cannot detect usb

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Can anyone tell me what is going on with my pc. It works out fine but just recently it no longer detects any kind of usb that i am plugging in. I tried scanning though hoping that it is just some kind of a virus, but it ain't. How can I fix this problem?

1. Ensure that your Windows is up-to-date. There are some updates on USB connections on Windows.

2. Check if your BIOS is updated as it plays a major role on your computer system.

3. Ensure that the USB drivers are installed correctly.

4. Run the SFC command to replace the missing Windows file if you are running Windows XP.

5. Ensure that your running an updated antivirus and anti spyware.
