I have had my advent laptop since march of last year and have had no problems at all. It has 4 x 2.0 USB connections on the side, now all of a sudden they have decided not to work. I have an external HD and USB mouse that are almost always connected. When I tried to connect them today my laptop jams up, which I find very weird. Whenever I try to insert a drive of some kind it jams, whereas when I try to connect my optical mouse its okay, it just dosnt work (even though the red optical laser lights up). I tried reinstalling drivers on both but this dosnt do anything. Any ideas?
All help appreciated.
EDIT - I have tried both of these on my other computer and they work fine. Also, it is now telling me that my USB device has malfunctioned.
