    I have the same problem. When I go to hardward and device manager, I see something called host controllers. When I open that I see universal and root hubs. Is this what I uninstall? I don't just see a simple "usb port/s". Thanks.

Printer keeps saying usb not conected


Can you print from it? It sounds like you just need to install the software that came with it, it has all the drivers you need or go to hp website and download the newest drivers. Update your drivers and then it will recognize it.
