USB Ports not working

Hi aidendillon.


Did the issue start after installing the Windows 8 Operating System?


First, check f your computer is supported for the Windows 8 Operating System selecting the exact model # of your computer here:


Try re-installing the USB Drivers from the Device Manager window to troubleshoot the issue.


You can get back with the exact model # of your computer for the further assistance. Locate the model # here:
