I had a problem with non-attached USBs on the front of one of my machines.

When all else fails (and it usually does), I fall back on a FREE HARDWARE system information and diagnostic software which has a rather strange name for such a program-HWiNFO.

It can be downloaded from:

This particular software is far, far better than the Windows OS Device Manager (BUT does NOT replace it, i. e., it's a COMPREHENSIVE diagnostic info tool).

I've used if for years.

The attached printscreen image file shows a PARTIAL image of what I see on my monitor when I open the program; some of the info is way over the head of a typical home user, but it's there if you need it. It is NOT going to spoon feed you what the info means; you will still have to analyze (figure out on your own) what the info is telling you. There is a forum for this program on the developer's website.

Working on a Gateway Athlon Windows Vista PC. It has 4 USB ports on back and 2 on front. The 4 on back work OK but the front 2 read nothing. They don't show up in the computer list either.waveysmiley

Where do I start to see what the problem is?
