    USB not working

    Locked

    by nhoek ·

    I have just upgraded a system to XP Pro from 98. Only one problem, the USB will not work. Get the error Code 10. USB is enabled in the BIOS and it does pick it up if you remove it. It doesn’t show any conflicts either. I thought perhaps flash the BIOS (last resort). But I have another system the exact same with the same BIOS and the USB works fine on it.

    Any ideas?

      Get the newest drivers (chipset drivers, etc) from your mainboard manufacturer and install them. I would also get the new bios anyway and update it There shouldn’t be any reason not to upgrade the BIOS.

      In the computer management>Device Manager>Universal Serial Bus controllers.
      In this right click and select properties and in the Drivers Tab click update drivers.Initially the drivers will not have USB 2.0 ,try this.this went fine for me

      Did you put on service pack 2? If you did, go to Device Manager, right click on the USB entries, and select Update Drivers. This is a known Microsoft issus after installing SP2.

        I do have SP2 on it. How ever I had the problem before SP2, I thought perhaps SP2 would correct the issue. I have tried everything suggested up till now…except flashing the BIOS which is my next step.

      1) Check that PnP is enabled in the BIOS.
      2) Check that USB is enabled in the BIOS
      3) Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Right click and remove all USB controllers.
      Reboot
      4) Consider that the USB controller may be faulty.
