  • The driver for the device is faulty. When you plug in a USB device, the computer should load and then configure the device without ever requesting a device driver. If the computer prompts you for a device driver, check the information that came with the device or go to the manufacturer's website to see if a driver is available.
  • The USB port might be defective. If the USB device is connected to a defective port, the device will not work. Try plugging the device into a different port. If all the USB ports are being used, unplug a device that you know works, and then plug the problem device into the port that device was using.
    If the device is plugged into a secondary USB hub with other USB devices, unplug the device from the hub, and then plug the device directly into a port on your computer.
  • Other USB devices might be drawing too much power from the hub. The device you are trying to use might require all the available power or bandwidth that your computer can provide. If other USB devices are connected to the computer and are drawing power from it, the first device might not work. If any other devices are drawing power from the hub, try disconnecting them, and then see if your device works. If this solves the problem, you might want to obtain a USB hub with its own power supply so that you have adequate power for all devices.

    HP Pavilion zv6000: USB ports are inop. USB port on rear of computer works fine. USB port on left/front will power my flash drive, but the light stays on constantly. The flash drive is does NOT show up in...

    After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

    So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
    If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

    Otherwise you can also do the same.

    Type in the product no. on Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

    I hope this will help.

    USB ports wont recognize anything I plug in

    Are you using XP? If so:
    Here is what you can do to refresh the USB ports:
    1. Right click MY COMPUTER
    2. Select PROPERTIES
    3. Select HARDWARE
    4. Select DEVICE MANAGER
    6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
    7. Uninstall all entries
    8. Reboot your computer
    9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects
    THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB device.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe

    My usb port does not respond on my HP laptop

    Hello there.

    I understand that you are unable to use the USB port of your computer.

    To isolate the issue try performing these steps.

    1) Check whether the device is working fine.
    2) Check with other USB ports to the same Notebook.
    3) If these steps do not work then you can do this.
    a) If your Notebook is under warranty you can send it to free repair ( Contact for more information)
    b) If it is not under warranty then check for the repair cost from chat support.
