    Any techies on here? (computer advice?)

    Tried to install Talk Talk today for a friend, and USBs on back of computer now are not working. None of them work!!! Anyone know what I can do? They were working but all of a sudden stopped. There are 3 on the back of computer. Luckily there are 2 more on the side, so I can use the mouse. Not sure what to do to get the USBs on back working again? Any advice be great!

    Thanks

    I would try removing them using device manager then reinstalling them.

    Any idea where device manager is and how I do that? Their computer has XP but its a really old computer

    Try a System Restore before you delete anything.

    Start>Right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device manager>USB Controllers>Right click on the suspect ones and uninstall. Then click scan for hardware changes and it should pick up the ones you've uninstalled.
