USB problem with lenovo 3000 n100

Jun 4, 2009
  1. I recently had to restore my laptop to factory default settings because of a virus that i had caught on my computer. With doing that i installed all of lenovo software for my computer such as sound drivers, built in webcam computer works fine but the only thing im having problems with is the usb ports. They are not reading any external devices such as my microphone and usb external devices..

    Ive been researching and i think its the bios but not sure i downgraded to the previous bios but with doin that the sound didnt work and the wireless internet wasnt read either..then i updated to the bios and everything works fine except the usb ports still.i also tried to update the ports and uninstalling and reinstalling but it still didnt work

    if anybody has any ideas on how to get this problem please reply to this post please its very appreciated
