Dell Xps Front Usb Ports Not Working

Thanks again for a well written article. See where it says Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller? That way you can confirm if it's a hardware (USB controller, etc.) or software (OS, drivers, etc.) issue. That's the substitute for the double-click of a mouse. have a peek at this web-site

Make sure you're using your mouse on a smooth, even, clean surface. I’ve tried to run Dell diagnostics to no avail (my computer model is not supported for Windows 10). If yours has that, try installing it on your laptop.

  8. Inspect those carefully.
  9. Hopefully, it’s just operating system or driver related as that’s the easiest and cheapest fix.
