USB Missing!

Good Afternoon
I have a USB hub with 3 devices attached (2 memory sticks and a Seagate external drive) connected to a USB port at the back of my computer. My computer (W10) has always found this hub and the devices connected through it, until this morning. I have restarted my computer, looked for this hub, and just have no luck. I have not changed any settings,added or removed any devices.

Would anyone be able to give me some advice, please?

Thanks very much!

Change the cable from the USB port to the hub. Connect one of the devices directly to the USB port and see if you can see it. Try a different USB port. If all this fails then go to Device Manager and delete all the USB ports, then restart the machine using Windows/Power/Restart. Good luck

Thank You

Thank you to both of you, Jackw106 and ea200 for your suggestions.

Apologies for not having come back sooner but have been away, and will be trying your suggestions later today.

I appreciate your input.

Sounds like a Darwin Award candidate, just a different way of preventing his genes being passed on...

Just to give you an update regarding my question about a USB hub.

Tried what was suggested above, but it turned out to be the hub itself which was at fault. A quick visit to the local Curry's store, and all is as it should be.

Thanks again to all who responded with their sensible ideas and suggestions.

Cheers!
