Windows XP’s won’t recognize any USB devices

When Windows XP won’t recognize any device, regardless of which port it’s connected to, there is likely a BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) or Windows configuration problem. Check to see if there is a configuration option on your computer in the BIOS that asks whether an IRQ (Interrupt Request) should be assigned to . Although the option’s actual wording varies among BIOS manufacturers, you should enable this option by setting it to either On or Yes (depending on your BIOS manufacturer and BIOS version). Otherwise no devices will work in XP.
