Question about Computers & Internet
I have a USB204N-F 4-port USB Hub .. over time i have plugged all my usb equipment into it at on point or another. the problem is now my computer will not reconize the equipment unless the equipment is plugged in to the Hub!!!
''USB DEVICE NOT RECONIZED!!'' device has malfunctiond and windows does not reconize it for help click the box.
help all i want to do is plug my stuuf in directly again.
If you need additional USB ports, the best way to go is to get a USB card that fits into the computer. That way it comes with a CD software program and can be updated. They are now USB 2 configured and work great. I have had to remove a number of USB hubs to fix other computers that have had the same problem.
Hope this info is of some help. Bud

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".
Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts
