Usb ports do not recognize peripheral devices such as printers or memory sticks.

  • Anonymous Aug 31, 2008

    Hi yes! Today had 4 power failures. I use a laptop with 2 4 port usb hubs; but it seems that the ports itself is the problem. When pluggin in the hubs or my mobile usb cable directly to the ports it gets power but no recognition. A memory stick or my USB external drives - no luck at all. I have uninstalled drivers, rebooted, etc.

    Do not know what to try next and this is my income generator that we are talking about - I am a Virtual Assistant

Even usb devices have to have drivers installed. Most printers and the like should be installed before you plug them in or it gives the os problems

Usb ports stopped working


Hi thedrogue429. it would be hard to tell if it's a hardware or a software problem because you hear something when you connect. You will have to try with other USB devices to see. In case you DID try with other devices and none of them worked. Get a PCI usb card. They cost prob $10 and you can install it yourself. It's really easy. In case that doesnt work you will need to reinstall Windows but anyways you will have more USB ports. I hope this helps and dont forget to rate and give positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

Try the stick at all the usb ports. Sometimes when other usb peripherals are connected, something like "usb priority" is notisable.

G'Day! I have a Transcend 2 GB USB stick. Whenever I connect it to my computer or any other computer, I get this error message ''THIS USB DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNNECT IT TO HIGH SPEED USB 2.0...


Yes. The problem is you don't have usb 2.0 ports on your motherboard. Its the second generation usb port. So if you want to upgrade you can buy additional hardware to upgrade this. But your motherboard has to be compatible with that additional peripheral too. As an example buses of your motherboard. So you have to check that also when you purchase. This is not a problem. The only thing is it will reduce the efficiency of your pen drive (Access time etc.). Other usb sticks you have may be usb 1.1 devices.

I need help opening a file saved on my memory stick with my pc


IF the win98 box wont recognize the usb stick you will need to install the drivers in order for the OS to recognize the device, after this you should be able to see the device and files on it

Computer won't recognize USB ports


If you are plugging a USB device into a different port it takes some time to recognize and install it - it re-installs for every port. There could be cable and/or port issues as well. Plug the printer into a USB port that the mouse does work on and allow several minutes for it to detect install it.

The problem is that some usb hub devices are not powered enough to recognise peripherals, i always recommend buying a mains powered usb hub as the pc's supply can find it difficult to power the usb ports enough as well as powering other components in your pc.

Trying to install printer but usb ports are not being recognized. How can i fix this?


go to control panel/system/hardware/device manager

look for the Usb ports at bottom. any of them that are marked with question mark, will need to be uninstalled, then scan for hardware changes(actions)

that should do the trick.

otherwise, you may need new drivers..see here possibly, depending on what printer you have.
