One of my usb ports won't work properly. If you plug something to it for longer than half an hour the usb port stops recognizing the device you plugged. I have an hp dv7 4190us laptop.


Start with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for your devices and reinstalling them. if That didn't work! Next try System Restore thinking that maybe you have installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn't work!

go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restart the computer, reinstall the USB drivers,

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

last fix for 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.

HP Pavilion zv6000: USB ports are inop. USB port on rear of computer works fine. USB port on left/front will power my flash drive, but the light stays on constantly. The flash drive is does NOT show up in...


After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

Otherwise you can also do the same.

Type in the product no. on www.hp.com. Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

I hope this will help.

My USB port does not recognize my cable when it is plugged in so it will not recognize my sewing machine.It shows disconnected USB when it is actually plugged in.


Try a different USB port and if no other port works, please re-install or make sure you installed it properly. Use disc if provided.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

One USB port outlet of my laptop is not working.


Interestingly some USB ports can not power all accessories that are plugged in to it. Try another port, if that works you're still in business. I believe that unit has at least 4 ports to use.

Hp pavilion dv4000 usb port can't use


This error occures when a USB device draws more power than the USB port can supply.
To fix this problem, purchase a powered USB hub. Power up the hub and connect it to the laptop's USB port and then plug the USB device into the powered USB hub.

My usb port does not respond on my HP laptop


Hello there.

I understand that you are unable to use the USB port of your computer.

To isolate the issue try performing these steps.

1) Check whether the device is working fine.
2) Check with other USB ports to the same Notebook.
3) If these steps do not work then you can do this.
a) If your Notebook is under warranty you can send it to free repair ( Contact HP.com for more information)
b) If it is not under warranty then check for the repair cost from HP.com chat support.

Dead USB Ports...


First go into Device manager and see if there is a Yellow! or a Red (x) next to any of the USB ports. If so right click and there will be a tab with solutions. If that doesn't get you anywhere go into BIOS and search for all of the USB ports. You should be able to add or turn onto Automatic to get them going. USB is simply a port, so some kind of the way the ports either got shut off or they are blocked.
