    Any ideas on why they stopped working? Did you install new software, reinstall windows, drop the laptop?

    Generally the only reason beyond physical damage they would work correctly is if you were missing drivers. Check ControlPanel>System>Device Manager and make sure you see your USB ports, and that there aren’t any yellow question marks or exclamation points.

    If there are, try downloading the latest drivers for your laptop from your laptop manufacturer’s website.
