Press "continue anyway" if the option is available.

It just means that the drivers for your usb have not been tested and confirmed working by Microsoft, this will happen with some 3rd party drivers.

Make sure you have system restore enabled in case the drivers do give you a BSOD as you will need to restore your system to an earlier time

To work around the above issues, one of the below solutions could prove helpful:usb-device-not-recognized.jpg
  • Unsecure or Loose Connection
    Unplug the presently connected USB device (if any). It is quite possible that the connection is not secure and has become loose. Re-plug the USB device tightly and firmly into the USB port. This is one of the most common reasons for an error in detecting a USB device.
  • Scan for Hardware Changes in Device Manager
    Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the Start menu, select the Run option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click Ok. From the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes. This will make Windows scan & recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all opened device managers and control panels. Now, follow the above step and see if your computer detects the USB device.
  • USB Hub Power Management
    Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management on the USB hub, follow these steps; Click Start, and then click Run. Type devmgmt.msc in the popup box, and then click Ok. Expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed.
    1. Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
    2. Click the Power Management tab.
    3. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click Ok.

      Note: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.
    Sometimes, simply unplugging the USB device and turning off the computer for twenty minutes and then restarting may solve the issue. If none of the above options have solved the problem, check the manufacturer's website for new driver information. It is possible that your drivers need to be updated. There could also be a possibility of hardware failure, which needs to be checked by a hardware expert.

How to install usb inf for windows 7 ?


Windows 7, by default, should have microsoft tested and approved driver inf's for all intel usb controllers. If you are having trouble installing drivers for windows 7, then contact microsoft. MS has tons of drivers built in to 7, and the d610 uses either the intel chipset or the broadcom chipset, and they are generic USB hubs. You can try using the "generic" usb driver when prompted, and that should work. I think the usb on a 610 is version 2.0, but it may yet be 1.1. 1.1 is rather old though, and went out with the pentium 3. Most p4's have 2.0 now, and should not be a big issue. If you call Dell, or check the dell site, you can see the usb chipset mfr for that chipset, then, contact the chip mfr (such as intel) and see if they have downloadable 7 drivers.

USB ports work at 1.1; s/b 2.0


Your computer is functioning correctly.
The USB ports on your laptop are USB1 ports its pard of the hardware.
Your PCMCIA USB 2 card runs at USB 2 speed and therefore when you connect a USB 2 device to this port you will not get this USB message.

Sound driver


There is no problem with that, simply select "install anyway".
The message means that the hardware vendor (RealTek in this case) did not have the device driver signed (approved) by Microsoft. But this does not mean it is not a valid driver.
