I had the same problem with mine and got it working by doing the following while on the phone to Garmin. Plug your charger cord into the device and your computer (do not use a laptop, you need the higher current from a desktop for this). Hold the power button down for as long as it takes for the Garmin logo to display, this could be as much as 1 minute. As soon as the image shows on the screen, release the power button. If your Garmin isn't completely shot you will see it boot up.
If you have the Garmin Web Updater program on your computer, run it and update the operating system software to insure you have the latest greatest from Garmin. Once that is done, update your XML data files - they'll be on the list of updates if you need them. Once those are done you can update any voice or language files you'd like.
Lastly, leave your GPS plugged in at least an hour or two to give it a charge. Overnight would be better to insure your battery is really well powered up.
At this point your Garmin should function normally. The Garmin tech I spoke with told me some units start acting funky when the battery runs down too low and if it's REALLY dead it won't even take a charge or power up when you hook up your charger cord. Try holding the power button for as long as it takes to get a spark & you should be on your way. If not, call Garmin's support number for your locale & they're do their best to get you back up & running again.

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY.
Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your
computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press
the power button as the motherboard still gets power.
First to explain, the motherboard is where all of
hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports.
Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something
can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small
microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB
ports should be back to recognizing all devices!
So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or
pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let
it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
Hope this helps someone fix that pesky "USB device not recognized" Windows error!
