Hi, all of my USB ports stopped working. I have a 9mth old Dell Inspiron 5759 with Windows 10 and all updates. In DEVICE MANAGER, it shows all USB drivers as up to date and running correctly. Have though about uninstalling/reinstalling them but were do i get the replacement drivers or will Win10 automatically see they're not there? If i plug in my MP3 player it is not recognized at all and won't charge/sync. DEVICE MANAGER shows it as an unsupported device and says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28). A service installation section in this INF is invalid. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver." To my knowledge, the device does not have a specific driver and Sony does not provide one. I have never needed one previously. If i plug in my phone I can charge but not sync. In DEVICE MANAGER, it shows as my phone like normal and says "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19). Online, searching "Code 19" seems to apply to CD/DVD drives and mine will now not play CDs and I cannot see it in Win Media Player but I can see it in File Explorer and click on it but nothing plays. Music on my hard drive plays normally. Any help anyone can give is greatly appreciated. Thanks.  Russell

that's fine and i'll reiterate that I prefer a removeable battery...  however, screenshots are from the manual... how many people look at a device's manual before purchase? let alone to determine if a seller's description is accurate. that's the same as advertising a model with 16Gb Ram, but then telling me i should've read the manual which states the max ram is 4Gb it doesn't change the fact that the models are advertised as having an integrated battery. Do i misinterpret what integrated means or did i read this wrong...  40 WHr, 4-Cell Battery (integrated) and as i stated, it''s all 5000 series 17" models, not just mine

I'm like "What?!" No worries, it's all good.
it was my belief that a removable battery was (gasp!) removable whereas an intergated battery was not as it was a part of the laptop. however my "Inspiron 5759 17 Touch" which in its product page on ... See more...
it was my belief that a removable battery was (gasp!) removable whereas an intergated battery was not as it was a part of the laptop. however my "Inspiron 5759 17 Touch" which in its product page on your site is listed as having a integrated battery has a battery that i can remove. (note: realized this when i had to switch keyboards) so my question is... what is the difference between a removable battery and an integrated battery? and as a follow question... which do i have?
