Try to plug your phone to other USB port in your PC I will recommend to plug it at the USB port at the back of your CPU. USB supply of power at the back of the CPU is sufficient to make your device function properly so it may be able to detect by the system..mostly device can't recognize by the system because they didn't function properly specially if they are plugged in a USB port who don't have enough supply of power to make them work properly..Hope it may help you..

It is referring to the USB ports on the back of your computer near where your keyboard plugs in. The front ones must be USB 1.1 which will cause this error.

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.

W385 not charging off computer


you have to give more detail to your question to get a better diagnosis.

(1) have you charged from this USB port before?
(2) Are you using a laptop?

There are 2 basic types of USB ports. powered and non-powered.

Sometimes you have to go into your computer settings and tell the computer this USB port you want powered.

The reason I asked if you are trying to charge using a laptop is because most laptop USB ports or non-powered because It will drain the battery down too fast.

if this is the case you can look into buying a powered USB hub which you can plug into your non-powered port you should be able to then charge this way.

good luck hope this helps.

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.

Cannot connect to computer


FIRST OF ALL, NEVER EVER PLUG IT INTO THE COMPUTER WHILE ITS ON. ALWAYS TURN THE PHONE OFF BEFORE HAND. AS FAR AS YOUR COMPUTER NOT RECOGNIZING THE USB CABLE, IT MAY ACTUALLY BE YOUR COMPUTER. AFTER ALL IF IT WAS THE CABLE, YOUR PHONE WOULDN'T CHARGE SINCE IT IS THE SAME CABLE FOR CHARGING AND USB CONNECTIONS. MY COMPUTER HAS HAD TROUBLE SEVERAL TIMES WHEN PLUGGING IN NEW OR DIFFERENT DEVICES INTO THE PORT. TO CHECK THE USB PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER.... GO TO CONTROL PANEL, THEN DEVICE MANAGER. DOUBLE CLICK UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. IF ANY OF THEM ARENT WORKING PROPERLY THERE WILL BE A YELLOW TRIANGLE WITH AN EXCLAMTION POINT BESIDE THE UNFUNCTIONING USB. IF IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING YOU WILL HAVE TO UPDATE THE DRIVER. IF YOUR PORTS, DRIVERS ETC DONT SHOW THE YELLOW TRIANGLE, THEY ARE WORKING. TRY PLUGGING THE PHONE INTO A DIFFERENT PORT UNTIL YOU FIND ONE THAT WILL ACCEPT IT. I HAVE A LAPTOP AND MY PHONE ISNT RECOGNIZED IN THE SAME USB PORT (ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE COMPUTER) THAT I USE FOR MY PRINTER. I USE A DIFFERENT PORT FOR MY CELL PHONE. IF YOUR COMPUTER IS OLDER , THE USB PORT MAY NOT BE HIGH SPEED. OLDER COMPUTERS HAVE USB PORTS WITH A SPEED OF 1x OR A MIX OF PORTS WITH 1x AND 2.O (2.0 IS HIGHSPEED 1x IS NOT). I HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

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.

Problem


I have discovered that some of the usb cables that connect to your phone and your computer do not all work. At one time I had to try 3 different cables before finding one that worked on my phone and computer.
I also learned that if I could not get my computer to acknowledge that the USB was being used by my cell phone I would shut down my computer and then try a different USB port. Sometimes it made a difference.
I have heard that when you first use a program with a specific USB port it is best to always use the same USB port if you can remember which one you used in the first time for that program.
As for losing your CD. I am figuring that this is the CD for Motorola Tools??? If it is you can do a search online for Motorola Tools Free Download... I hope I have helped.
