    Hi guys, I have a single USB port on my laptop which doesnt work. It has power but nothing happens, I have reinstalled all USB Root Hub and have tried using windows 7 and linux livecd.

    I have tried with many different devices and they all work on the other ports. Things like portable HDDs spin and usb thumb drives with lights glow.

    I cannot remember if it ever worked. I brought this laptop recently so it is obviously in warranty and I can probably contact the store I brought it from.

    Any ideas?

    Most likely a bad port I would get it repaired.

    ok, I got it from a PCWorld retail store. I'll see what they can do.
