My computer has 3 ports for usb memory sticks and one port for a compact flash card. The 2 ports for memory sticks and the port for the compact flash card do not function. I understand it could be a bios problem but then I suppose none of the ports would be functioning.
thanks in advance.

Have you tried using a 5 port USB hub through one of the
USB ports your using as it could be one of the USB ports
could be faulty....

Try this or try the problem device on another machine or a
nother port and se what happens so we can narrow the
problem down...

What make/model is your computer? Are these ports original
to the computer or are they added on? How are they
connected...Is there a PCI card and a module in a drive bay
or are they direct to the mobo?
Have you looked in the device manager to see what is shown?
Have you likewise looked at the BIOS?

Without details any answers you get are just wild guesses.

computer make is micromaxx with an AMD athlon 2600 processor. All parts are original. I have checked the device management section and one of the usb ports is marked as being unable to start with an error code nr. 10. I have tried removing and then adding that particular port but that does not help. Thanks for any advice.

Download and run a system scan program such as BelArc
Advisor www.belarc.com or Lavaly's EVEREST
http://www.lavalys.com/ and they will report what
motherboard you actually have. You can then find the mobo
manual on-line. The mobo might have the USB port disabled
in the BIOS or it might be physically disconnected or
shorted.
