USB2 not working
« on: January 01, 2010, 09:17:54 PM »
Hi I am running Karmic on an old IBM T23 laptop. It is fitted with a USB2 card but this has stopped working and I am none too sure where to start looking to find the fault. If I plug in a good flash drive it does seem to be recognised and does not show up when I run "lsusb". Thanks in advance.
