I Recently installed 12.04 on an old Presario F700 laptop that belonged to my daughter. It was running Windows before I did a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04. Only 1 of 3 USB ports is working. She doesn't remember if this was the case when she had it and I'm trying to figure out if it's a hardware issue or not.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0461:4d4c Primax Electronics, Ltd
I realize the last line shows the wireless adapter for the mouse, which is working. I don't know what the rest means. There is an 8gb flash drive in one of the other ports that isn't showing up, I think it should be on Bus 001.
Thanks for your time,
