It sounds like either a faulty usb socket or a driver issue with usb on your system... do you use microsoft update to keep your system up to date and the drivers current? if not you should do so. If you have more than 1 usb socket on your computer try one of those... remember itunes/iphone/ipods use usb version 2 and may not work properly if you have the older usb 1 standard on your computer

I cant get my lg k7 to do anythingbecause of the ui system has stopped error message

That occurs when the update did not complete successfully or because of a newly installed app, if you go to recovery you will lose all you data as it will do a factory reset, to avoid this here is what to do. Download the LG Mobile Support Tool and install it, you can google for it or go to LG website and search for it there. With your phone off and not plugged into the PC yet, open the mobile support tool with the USB cable plugged into the PC but not into the phone, press and hold the volume up button and power button at the same time and while holding those buttons down plug the cable into the phone micro port. Keep holding them until you see a circle made up of two arrows , that puts your phone into downloader mode, looking at the software you should see on the left that it is trying to connect, if it does not , then you press install USB option under connecting, if it does connect it will show your phone model and if an update is available, you can press the center button on the left side, entitled update and let it complete the process before removing it from the PC, this should not affect any info or apps currently installed including your contacts. Good luck

If it is a USB webcam, then First BEFORE you plug anything in, install the software/drivers, that came with the Camera. When installed, reboot. Then when at desktop next, plug in the USB cable. The Camera will/should detected by the PC, it may ask for drivers, if so point it to where the CD/Drivers are, when it seems finished, reboot.

My iphone 4 has crashed and displays the picture of a USB Cable ans the itunes logo, i cant get my laptop to recognise the iphone when i plug it in to restore any ideas?

You need to put it to DFU mode in order for your computer to recognize it. Here's one way of doing that:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.

If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures and some screenshots on my tip (link below):

Every time I plug my led tv into my xps via hdmi cable it crashes my computer and reboots and then will not reboot until i unplug the cable

If it gets to windows and gives a Blue screen before rebooting I would try updating graphics drivers. If it wont even begin to boot Windows you may have a hardware problem.

You have to leave it on itunes for about 15 mins, let the iphone download the software itself, once the software update is done, the usb and itunes logos will come again you have to leave the phone in the usb for a while and then it will work.

Printer will not communicate with the computer. I keep getting a note saying to check all connections which I hav done.

Try doing this (assuming Windows OS):
  1. From Control Panel > Priinters, remove all printers.
  2. Unplug USB cable to printer and reboot.
  3. Install software for printer. I would suggest using the newest drivers from the manufatures site. I would have given a link if I could, but you didn't post a make or model number.
  4. Plug USB cable back in.
Hope that fixed ya...
