USB port goes unresponsive

Post by jeenuv »

My laptop has 3 USB ports. I'm not sure the exact sequence of events, but after a series of plugging and unplugging devices into them, some, at times, go dead. Thereafter, the port wouldn't recognise any devices plugged into it. Other ports, meanwhile, works as usual.

The only way to get that port working is to reboot the PC. Does anyone know what's going on? Are there any known workarounds/magic runes to get the port back working without a reboot?
