USB not recognized on my PC, I have encountered the same problem as you. Well, I think the best solution for this is to first shut down your computer. After which, unplug the power supply from its wall which can be found at the back of the CPU. Then wait for 5 minutes so that it could cool down. After the said 5 minutes, plug back the power supply. Boot the computer. Then try to reopen your USB flash drive by putting it again on its port. If the USB lights, then its now functioning again. Please see link below for you to be guided accordingly.

Thank you.

Hi there , 

I think you are having trouble with the USB ports in Front side bus. 

Let me say USB is a awesome technology and as far as it is . It has different versions of USB . Namely . USB 1.0 

USB 1.1 

USB 2.0 

USB 3.0

Usb 3.0 is the best USB series available and can transfer data at a speeed of 600 MBPS . Awesome right. 

Let me say in your case , In the Front side USB . One USB is 2.0 and the other is USB 1.1 That is why you see one is a little bit faster than the other . It maybe because of the motherboard manufacturer. These guys say their Motherboard supports 12 or 100 USBs and eventually just 5 or 6 will be High speed 2.0 ports and others will be just basic USB 1.1 . Ensure to read the motherboard manual carefuly before buying a Motherboard.

good luck.
