Connecting a yamaha s90 synthesizer to usb computer

I turned my computer and keyboard on one day last week and the computer does not even recognize the keyboard like it does every other usb attached to it. I even tried to get my laptop to recognize it and it would not recognize it either. I also changed the usb cable to a new one and it still not see the keyboard. Is there something wrong with my yamaha s90? please help.

A little late for the original poster, but this answer may help someone else.

On the S90, press the "Utility" button then press the "F5" button under the display. Make sure MIDI IN/OUT is set to "USB" (using the DEC/NO and INC/YES buttons under the jog wheel). The factory default is "MIDI" which means no computer could detect it.
Once you've done this, install the S90 USB driver on the PC then plug in the USB cable. The PC should detect the S90 and you should get a new item in your windows control panel where you can set MIDI I/O and channels.

From what you say, you took all the right steps to isolate the problem. It sounds more like a problem with your synthesizer. Sorry to confirm your diagnosis.

Do you need a computer to use the Novation UltraNova 37-Key Analog-Modeling Synthesizer


The Keyboard comes with inbuilt sounds (Approx 300 Presets and 200 user patches), so you can play it Live without a computer by simply taking AUX outs and it has a wall power supply adapter. You can also connect it to your computer via USB for additional sounds through VST instruments and Plugins. The USB also powers up the Keyboard without the adapter. Hope this helps.

Hi, Are you getting a "USB device not recognized" error whenever you plug in a USB mouse, keyboard, or other USB device? I love USB and have 5 ports on my computer so that I can connect my mouse, keyboard, camera, phone, and printer to it all at once!

However, last weekend, my computer stopped recognizing my USB devices! The strange thing about it was that the USB ports were not bad because all of my devices were still getting power to them. I could still charge my cell phone without a problem!

usb device not recognized

So I started with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for my devices and reinstalling them. That didn't work! Next I tried System Restore thinking that maybe I had installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn't work!

I read online that in order to fix this problem I should go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restarted the computer, reinstalled the USB drivers, but the problem STILL did not go away!

You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an "Unknown Device".

So how did I finally fix the problem? Well, apparently it's a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall drivers, or anything of that sort.

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!


Have a nice day...

Computer will not recognize any keyboard


This applies only if you are attaching the keyboards to PS/2 port: the problem could be that PS/2 port has failed. In this case it is a hardware problem, and it is not likable that it can be fixed. You should find a keyboard that connects to USB port and see if it works.

If we're talking about USB keyboard, possibilities are that USB support for keyboard and mice has been turned off in computer BIOS.
