One of my usb ports Stopped working
So here is the issue, one of my ports stopped working completely and it wont recognize any device and won’t show anything on the screen saying usb device not recognized,it’s like plugging nothing into the usb port, what i believe cause the problem is when i tried to check on one my PS4 controllers that wouldn’t charge anymore and so i tried using multiple usb cables that were plugged into that one specific usb port,so whenever i plug my controller into the usb port it message pops up saying that usb device not recognized and then i switch to a different cable and it’s the same message and i keep trying till the message won’t show anymore on my screen like the usb port has no power but it actually has power cause i can feel it,after that i tried plugging different devices that work just fine on my other usb ports and none of the worked and yes i tried a couple of solutions like uninstalling my usb hubs and updating them and none of these worked for me so i’m just wondering if there is anything i can still do and it is just my usb port that is dead.
Hi @saifprogaming ,
What is the make and model number of your desktop PC?
Have you verified that the USB port is actually not supplying power, by inserting into it a USB device that gives an indication of power being supplied to it, e.g. a mobile phone that shows it's charging or even a mouse where the laser light is showing? You have to be very sensitive to "feel" +5V DC voltage. It's better to actually prove that it is there or not
Is it a USB port that is mounted directly onto the motherboard at the back of the case or does it appear at the front of the case on a panel?
Use a strong light and a magnifying glass to visually inspect the USB port enclosure, to ensure that all the pins are there and that they're all straight and parallel with each other.
So yeah of course i did mention that i tried plugging other devices into the port,my mouse wouldn't even light it when plugged into the port and yes my phone wouldn't charge when i tried that port when it use to work just fine before all this happened,and yes it's one of the front ports and not the ones in the back.
So i also tried inspecting the usb port like you told me and it looked fine except for it being a bit dusty which i don't think that it has to do with the port not working cause that's how it has always been like.
