    Need more information. How "crushed" is it? Is it beyond using a tool to bend things back?

    Best case: Bend it back with a butter knife!
    Worst case: Take the motherboard out, find the USB connector and re-solder a new connector. You can get the connectors online, I don't think Radio Shack carries them.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Check the system requirements on the Bluetooth dongle. If your system does not fit all the requirements, the device is not going to work. The requirements for the Bluetooth dongle are printed in the user manual and packaging. You may compare this to what is running on the computer by clicking "Start," "Control Panel" and "System." This displays the hardware running on the computer.

Disconnect the Bluetooth dongle, restart the computer, then plug it back into a USB port. If you power on the computer with the dongle already instead, the system may not detect the equipment. Restarting the computer and performing this action helps correct the problem.
    • 3
Remove the Bluetooth dongle from the USB port and plug it into a different connection. Some USB ports fail to detect certain computer hardware. Changing the connection port fixes this.
    • 4
Install the driver on the provided driver installation CD. Without the driver, the computer is unable to detect and use the dongle. Insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer, then follow the on-screen steps to install the driver onto the system.

How to fix ?USB device not recognized? error in windows


Are you getting a “USB device not recognized” error whenever you plug in a USB mouse, keyboard, or other USB device? I love USB and have 5 ports on my computer so that I can connect my mouse, keyboard, camera, phone, and printer to it all at once!
However, last weekend, my computer stopped recognizing my USB devices! The strange thing about it was that the USB ports were not bad because all of my devices were still getting power to them. I could still charge my cell phone without a problem!

So I started with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for my devices and reinstalling them. That didn’t work! Next I tried System Restore thinking that maybe I had installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn’t work!
I read online that in order to fix this problem I should go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restarted the computer, reinstalled the USB drivers, but the problem STILL did not go away!
You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an “Unknown Device”. 42b721d.png
So how did I finally fix 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.
Hope this helps someone fix that pesky “USB device not recognized” Windows error!

Cannot charge Dell Axim x50!!! I am using a USB data/power cable. I have it plugged into my 2.0 usb slot on the computer and its flashing green and orange, but it wont really charge. I have left it here...


if the bandwith on your computer is insufficient it will not recognize the connection. Try using a different USB port and you may find it works.

PS3 USB ports won't work


All I could say is have a person who is really smart with technology take your Ps3 aapart and check the diodes on your fuse board (green plate that has a buncha little things on it). check to see if your diodes could be burnt or possobly loose. unless you can take it apart but have troubles putting it back together i wouldent try it. have a really smart person fix it. not a scientist or some guy from a company...justi make sure they no wat they are doing. I messed up my USBs by having a short in my keyboard. it tells me to plug in my controler but It wont read my controlers. theres a 92% chance its somthing wrong with my USB ports. I hope this helps you out.

Hook up


Hey, what you need to to do is download an application called Activesync. It will open up as soon as you plug in your ipaq and I bet you the rest will be history. It worked for me.

Hookup to computer


connect the usb cable to the pocket pc. then, with pc on, plug the opposite end to the pc usb port. then, open My Computer" icon on desktop and then find the drive letter associated with the pocket pc. for example, if your pc has only one hard drive and one cd-rom drive, then your pocket pc letter will be e:. double-click e drive and verify your pocket pc. then mouse-drag any files from outlook folder into the e: drive. they will be copied, by default. the originals will still be on the pc.
