My Mouse Fails To Work On One Of the USB Ports

I started (booted) up my computer just a while ago and discovered there was no activity for my Mouse. I checked all the connections and then decided to use one of the extra ports on the front side of my computer. The Mouse works now. I have concluded that there is a faulty port on this 4 way hub that I had purchased from Wal Mart a while back. Can I repair this item? Is it under warranty? The serial number is 050750015. Am I stuck with a hub that just has 3 ports working now? I have been working with computers for over 20 years now, and this is the first time I have ever seen a USB Port go bad on anything. Please provide answers and solutions.

Thanks

I have had several ports go bad for no apparent reason. its happened on internal and external devices.
Frankly, unless this is a thing of principal for you I would just go and order a new hub from Amazon for a few bucks and be done with it. Even if its under warranty you would probably be required to ship the dead one back so that would cost more than getting a new one.
Just my 2 cents

Do you have Windows XP and at least Service pack 2 installed.
Service Pack 2 comes bundled with the neccessary drivers for USB 2.0
In device manager under the USB heading you must have:
PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller
In the list.

My plug in mouse for my hp laptop isnt working the red light wont come on and its plugged in


First of all boot to the Bios, think its F2 or Del key on that model..
In the advanced screen, checdk to see that USB controllers are enabled for the mouse.
If they are, try plugging another usb peripheral (usb drive or dongle) into the ports, if they ARE recognised, then issue is with the mouse. If they do not register, then issue is with the USB ports. Possibly a damaged USB controller

Mouse won't install


You may need to check your BIOS setting. The mouse be disabled there. You can access the BIOS thru the boot menu when your computer frist starts up. If the mouse is active as a usable feature, then you may have to a hard boot of your operating system with the OS(Windows Vista, XP, 2000, etc.) Cd you recieved with the computer. If that does not work, then you will have to a complete reinstall of your operating system.

The usb ports will not work,therefore the mouse nor the keyboard will work


Try the mouse in a computer where the USB ports *DO* work.

It is possible that your system does not have the correct "device-drivers" for the USB ports. Thus, those USB ports seem to be "dead".

Turn the computer off.
Connect a PS/2 keyboard and a PS/2 mouse.
Turn the computer on.
Click START
Click Control Panel
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Expand the "USB ports" section of the tree.
Look for "yellow" or "red" marks.
Double-click one of those "problem" devices.
Choose "Reinstall Driver".
If it asks to be able to connect to the Internet, click "yes, this time".
Hopefully, this will install the correct drivers for your USB ports.

Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??


It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.

Can't load os do you computer Dell only has usb ports


Ensure the Keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB ports nearest the PS2 port on the back of the chassis.

Boot to the BIOS F2 and ensure USB emulation is ON.

If you can't access the bios, reset the BIOS using the Jumper on the motherboard, then USB ports should then work.
