USB driver is not working


Firstly, you should check up when you attach a device to your computer, if there is an error message showing up at the right bottom of the desktop which says "USB Device Not Recognized". If so, you must haven't install the driver of the device properly or the driver is damaged.

Then you will need to download a new one from the website of the manufacturer and install it on your PC. Then the hardware will be recognized by Windows system and be able to work.
If there is no error message "USB Device Not Recognized" showing up, that means your USB driver is damaged or outdated. USB driver is used for detecting USB devices. Without it, Windows system will not be able to detect and recognize any USB hardware. The only way to solve the problem is to install a new USB 2.0 driver for your computer.

No matter which issue it is, the problem always result from outdated or damaged device drivers. To solve and avoid hardware not working problems is to update the drivers regularly. Because all drivers have bugs more or less and lead to a lot of unexpected computer errors. Chipset manufacturers, like NVIDIA, ATI, Intel and so on, update and release new drivers for their products.

So you just need to download and install new ones for your computer.

Did this suddenly start to occur? Were they working before? If so, it is very simple - shut down computer, remove the battery and unplug any power source, wait a couple of minutes and reassemble and power up. Wala! I read all kinds of complicated instructions, started with the simple, and problem solved.

Usb malfuction

just because it says it doesn't recognise it doesn't mean it won't work. Plus if it's a device needing drivers you should download and install the drivers first then attach the usb cable. Go to the manufacturers website and find the drivers for the product downloading and installing the proper ones for the version of windows you have.

Also if you had listed what it was.... make and model could've given you a link to the drivers

USB Device Not Recognized

Appears to be a failure of the bluetooth module itself. You could try uninstalling it in Device Manager and reboot to allow it to reinstall.
