I have a bit of a weird problem I'm having trouble solving. I've recently installed Lubuntu and after a little fiddling with the wireless thought it to be working flawlessly.
However having just tried to plug a USB stick in, it appears the sockets are all dead. I've tried running lsusb and it shows the root hubs, but there doesn't seem to be any power running through the sockets. It's not a physical issue as the BIOS boots from USB just fine.
Not much to go on I know, but if anyone has any generic suggestions to try I'm all ears!
