    Still didn't work...I tried just that and it still says UNKNOWN DEVICE and won't connect....any other ideas? Thank you!

    Using Vista...from the threads I've been reading this is a common problem, but a pain in the rear to fix....I'm at a total loss thus far.

    Tried and done that. I have re-installed the drivers but logictech does not have drivers because they are included in Vista driver packs. So I downloaded Microsoft mouse drivers and bought a Microsoft Mouse but even that doesn't work. It still says the drivers did not install correctly, problem code 28.

    If you are using XP, try updating to service pack 3
    I use to link people right to Microsoft for the download, but it seems they no longer support it as the page cannot be displayed and it sends you to thier main page and they won't let you download it anymore.

    You may have to work this backwards, check the usb mouse manufacturers web site for vista updates to firmware.

Laptop not recognizing device when plugged into laptop how to fix


The computer is not recognizing the device because the appropriate software or driver is not installed on the device.

Most of the time when you connect a smartphone into a compatible laptop the device drivers or software automatically install, so the laptop may recognize the smartphone.

Here are some possibilities as to why the device is not recognized.

1) The USB port is bad.
2) The USB port is not activated
3) One of the devices does not support the other

Here are a few possible troubleshooting solutions:

1) Go to the smartphone manufactures website and download and install the updated device driver and software then plug in the device to see if it is recognized.
2) (if Windows OS) Go to the Device Manager to see if the device is showing up when it's plugged in. If you see the device in device manager right click the device and choose to update the driver.
3) (if Windows OS) Additionally, in device manager you can check your device's USB ports to see if there is an issue with the ports that may be resulting in the smartphone not being recognized. You can choose to re-enable the USB ports or update the software for the USB ports.

Hopes that helps resolve your issues.

Acidentally plug in earphone jack on usb port


The USB ports are very well protected and I don't expect that is the cause of win7 crashing. Plug a USB device into a USB port and if the laptop recognizes it, the port is OK.

If other USB devices are woking fine, it means that the USB ports on the system are OK. The issue could be with the mouse. So, I suggest that you should check the mouse by connecting it on some other system. Also, try another mouse with your laptop and see if it works.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

"USB Device Not Recognized" - any usb device


1-Make sure you are using XP SP2. You probably are but just in case....

2-Unplug all USB devices

3-Uninstall any software for the devices you just unplugged

4-Reboot into safe mode and open the device manager. Make sure to choose the show hidden devices option

Note: Follow the order of removal exactly and this MUST be done in safe mode only!

5-Remove any entries for USB peripherals like scanners and printers

6-Remove any entries for HID devices or Combp USB devices

7-Remove all USB root hub entries

8-Remove all USB host controller entries

9-Reboot to normal mode, let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive.

If this didn't work then repeat steps 1-8.
Staying in safe mode, right click in the device manager and scan for hardware changes. Let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive again.

Also when doing any of this try and get a hold of another thumb drive and try it instead of yours. Your thumb drive could be the source of the trouble. We had similar issues we tracked down to a bad batch of Memorex thumb drives.
