    "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it." It displays this error mesg everytime I connect my USB mouse to the laptop. It was working fine before. It stopped working all of a sudden and I thought it ran out of batteries. I tried changing the battery and reinstalling the driver but nothing seems to work. The mouse is less than 6 months old but bought from amazon.com so I dont even know how to claim warranty.
    I have also tried Solution #1 and it doesnt work. Please help, my efficiency is 50% without this.

    Thanks.

Between home and work, I have multiple computers and numerous mice. I've tried switching them around to get around this problem. I only have this problem on my laptop that runs VISTA. All my pre-Vista machines are truly plug-and-play with all my mice. Disk with software is only needed to use enhanced features and program the extra buttons on the mice. Even my new Microsoft mouse won't work with Vista.I don't want to knock Vista, I like every other feature of it I've used so far, but this unknown USB error ir really hampering my productivity.

Did you install the CD software program that came with your mouse?
If you did and it gave you the unknown device, Then disconnect the mouse receiver from the USB port and reinstall the software program from the CD.
Then if that doesn't work try the following.
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the smallrest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it toReset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then pressthe mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries orglitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

My laptop cannot detect the mouse. It states that there is an undetectable device. I have followed all directions and I still can't get the mouse to connect to my laptop


I think this will help.
A USB Connector has 4 terminals.The two terminals at the ends are to supply 5 Volts. The middle two are for data transfer.

If the terminals at the end are OK the device will get power (5V). Then the computer can detect something was attached. But if one of the middle terminals are damaged, your computer cannot recognize the device.
The problem might be with the USB port of the printer. Connect it to a different port. Does it (mouse) work on your desktop machine? Then the problem is not with the mouse.
If the mouse fails on all USB ports, the problem is with the mouse. Check the USB jack of the mouse. Sometimes the damage is visible. Or else one of the 4 wires of the mouse cable is disconnected (damaged) due to bending of the wire. In this case, buy a new mouse or replace the mouse cable.

Hi i have an external HD...Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB...it is working smoothly on my laptop and other computers..however as soon as i want to connect it to my desktop, it is not being detected. My...


Connect some other USB device (keyboard? mouse? memory-stick?) to your desktop?
Are those devices detected? If not, then either:
* the USB port(s) on your desktop are damaged,
* the device-drivers for the USB ports on your desktop are not installed.

Try connecting it to a different desktop/laptop, to see if the Seagate works at all, on any desktop.

You need to install the drivers that came with this GE optical mouse so that windows can properly install and identify the new mouse. Pop the driver cd that came with the new mouse into the cd drive and follow the instructions. If you need more help, let me know ok?

USB device not recognized


Two things to try. First try a different USB port. If that doesn't work go into Control Panel> System>Devices and find the device. It should be under Unknown devices. Delete it and unplug the mouse. Reboot and then inser the mouse. If that doesn't work tyhe mouse may be faulty.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.
