Recognising USB Devices

Hi. My computer doesn't recognise any of my usb devices any more. They were working one day and then not the next. I think it has something to do with me finding my 3 year old who had turned my computer on and managed to rename some folders on my desktop. I dont know if he has renamed other vital files. I tried the removing of the root hub and rebooting and still can not connect. Please Help. sbrien@unwired.com.au

My mouse wont get recognized


Have you tried to use the mouse in another computer to determine that the mouse if fully working. There are many reasons why it could be non-recognised. Has it ever worked on your system? Is it new and just a faulty mouse. It may be you could just take it back to the shop for a replacement one. Do other devices work in the same USB port. Some times my computer just stops recognising my USB keyboard yet it has been working for months. I found that it seems to be the USB port where the problem is. So not I just switch my mouse and Keyboard usb connectors around and it starts to recognise both again. I can not figure out why it stops. As another device is recognised suggesting the port is not faulty.

My usb ports stop working and then are ok again?


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Madgoody.

This is a software fault, specifically with drivers for the USB 2.0 controller of your notebook.

You will need to do the following:
1.) Right click My Computer and select properties.
2.) Click the Hardware Tab and clcik Device Manager.
3.) Find the heading: Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
4.) Click the + next to the USB heading.
5.) Right click on USB Root Hub and click properties.
6.) Now click the driver tab and click Update driver.

Select the option for this time only and click next.
A driver should be found automatically.

You could also go to your notebook manufacturers website, Compaq and search for drivers using your model number 6730b. Then download the USB drivers.

Take care!

Jonathan deleted my usb


Several conditions affect how the USB device functions. First, unplugging the USB device least with the prescribed method of shutting resources with the menu buttons provided on computer makes device loose components recognisable at replugin. usually, in such instance the computer takes time to reconfigure the device at reconnection either automatically installing mutated codes or requesting to manually download the fragmented codes. Second, computer that have undergone updates or upgrades prior to establishing the USB devices least recognies the device. Reconnect the device to momentarily reconfigure the new setting attained on computer. Depending on the type of modifications that were made to the computer would either autocompile the USB codes to attain functionality or require manual installation of missing programs. usually the computer has the recommended missing programs only requires unpacking at the system update search buttons. In the sitaution where the computer was modified beyond recognising USB device require to ascertian that compartible ssytems would allow install a program from elswhere or simple acquiring another computer thar recognises the USB device.

PC not recognising Iomega Prestige 320gb usb portable hard drive. I've connected it all up, disconnected, reconnected, rebooted the computer, but the drive is just not recognised and does not show up in...


Does the drive show in Device Manager? Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties, the open device manager.. Navigate down to Disk Drives or Hard Drives, click on the plus sign and see if your drive is listed. If it is, then right click on the drive name and open properties for the drive. Click on the 'Volumes' tab and hit the 'Populate Button'. It may be the disk just needs initialising, then reformatting before you can use it. If it does need initializing, a wizard should appear to guide you through the process!
If this doesn't solve your problem, try using a different USB cable and/or USB ports on your computer, and ensure to unplug all other USB devices other than keyboard & mouse.

Usb port not recognising devices and mouse pad not responding


hello there. It sounds as if your motherboard (bios) is not configured correctly, or your windows drivers somehow got corrupted. check in your MoBo's manual to see how to access it's bios options. and make sure that your onboard usb options are enabled.
