Try consulting the mfg for updated drivers. Try removing the usb port it's using and letting it redetect the port, also see if there is special software that comes with the usb camera and reinstall that. If all fails reinstall windows.

Laptop not recognizing device when plugged into laptop how to fix


The computer is not recognizing the device because the appropriate software or driver is not installed on the device.

Most of the time when you connect a smartphone into a compatible laptop the device drivers or software automatically install, so the laptop may recognize the smartphone.

Here are some possibilities as to why the device is not recognized.

1) The USB port is bad.
2) The USB port is not activated
3) One of the devices does not support the other

Here are a few possible troubleshooting solutions:

1) Go to the smartphone manufactures website and download and install the updated device driver and software then plug in the device to see if it is recognized.
2) (if Windows OS) Go to the Device Manager to see if the device is showing up when it's plugged in. If you see the device in device manager right click the device and choose to update the driver.
3) (if Windows OS) Additionally, in device manager you can check your device's USB ports to see if there is an issue with the ports that may be resulting in the smartphone not being recognized. You can choose to re-enable the USB ports or update the software for the USB ports.

Hopes that helps resolve your issues.

Regarding USB Port


One of your usb devices has more than likely has had a driver get corrupted. Try unplugging your devices one by one until you find the culprit. Once identified download and install the latest driver for that device. this should correct your problem. Good luck.

Acer webcam USB probelm


Is the webcam USB? Try rebooting the computer with no other USB devices connected. If you're still having the problem try it through a separate mains powered hub. Webcams can often overload the USB ports on laptops.

Acer Vista Lap Top Won't Recognize USB Flash Drives


If Acer screwed up fixing your problem the first time (and it's evident that they did) they are obligated to fix it a second time, and if they cant, they are obligated to replace your laptop.
