For no apparent reason whenever I plug anything into my USB ports I get a message that the device is not recognised and suggests the device is not working...this has happened overnight, last eveing all was well...the only thing I can get to function on any of my USB ports is a small fan...apparently the printers , camera, usb hubs etc are all defunct...any one any suggestions as to where I can start looking for faults?

Thanks,

It's surprising just how much a simple re-boot can solve.
