Computer not seeing usb port?

Question

We just installed a USB port and our computer is not seeing it. When we boot up it looks for it and scans for the USB port but does not find it. I installed the USB myself. Could I have installed it incorrectly? Thank you.

You may have to enable USB in your BIOS Firstly go into BIOS settings This is usually achieved by pressing the DEL key during boot up Check if USB is there and if so, enable it

Be very careful to NOT change anything else accidently and certainly don't change anything just for the sake of it You may render your computer inoperable If you change anything in the BIOS you must know exactly what you are changing and why Save the new settings and exit.
