This is a Hardware issue where the USB Ports disappear on rebooting

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Usb mass storage device

You first option is to contact Levono Technical Support for a fix to the problem.

If this wasn't a NB M$ advice would be to turn off unplug and leave for about 10 minutes as one of their Patches has caused some USB problems but as it's a NB you'll need to contact the Maker for a solution though in the mean time you could disconnect it and remove the main battery and see if that helps but I wouldn't be counting on it as a solution.

Delete the USB root hubs

by ugadata In reply to Usb mass storage device

Something you can try is to delete the USB root hubs from within device manager. After all the USB root hubs are deleted close device manager and reboot the computer.
As the computer restarts you should see the Hardware Found Wizard as it redects the USB Root Hubs.

For you Data's sake I would not have any USB devices plugged in while performing this procedure. I don't think it would really hurt anything but just in case don't plug anything in the USB ports.

Check for mapped drives

by sur_70 In reply to Usb mass storage device

Sometimes the usb drive is trying to take a drive letter that is already mapped or used. Disconnect the mapped drive and do not reconnect on boot up. Reboot then reconnect the usb drive. If that mapped drive is important remember the path and remap with another drive letter.

USB problems continue

by sallysmoczynski In reply to Usb mass storage device

Did you ever solve the problem? I am getting the same issue when I plug in a USB device..if there is already one plugged in, it is good and works...but if I unplug or just plug in anything into any of the ports, it doesn't recognize it.
