Hi,
I have no working usb on my pc, I have done a reinstall, and even tried fitting a new USB PCI card which is not detected after reboot.
There is no USB shown in hardware and nothing showing without drivers....??

Hi,

Thanks,

Yes there was a driver, although it should not be required according to documentation.
The problem is it does not even detect the new hardware, I have tried searching also,

I wonder if USB is disabled in the bios?

Try tapping Del or F2 as soon as you turn on the computer. The actual key to press may be different, so watch the screen and it should say "Press xx to enter Setup/Bios".

Restore the bios defaults, save the changes and exit.
