Re: USB ports have stopped working overnight Ubuntu 12.04
I'll get the ball rolling for others as i am off to bed.
A full description of your hardware please.
Are the ports USB 1/2 or 3 ? Are all the ports affected ?
Are you using a USB hub ?
Have you tried booting into a LiveCB/USB to see if the problem is still there ?
Did you switch your 'computer off/power cut/ left it running' between the times they worked and stopped working ?
What have you tried so far to fix it ?
Have you checked dmesg to see what it says ? You may want to post that here.
