Laptop USB ports not working???


Mar 9, 2015
HP Pavilion TS 15 n044nr
Windows 8.1

All 3 usb port will not work when I insert my flash drive or external hard drive. I would get a yellow triangle by the device I inserted in Device Manager. The weird thing is that my usb mouse works and in BIOS it can see it but when it gets to Windows it won't work.

I've tried updating usb drivers, IME drivers, uninstalling usb and checked BIOS but nothing seems to work. Anyone got an idea?

This is how it looks in my Device Manager if it helps.

Is reinstalling the same as updating? If nothing work do you think a fresh install would fix it?
