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

I HAVE A NEW COMPUTER AND MY GIGA WARE MOUSE DOESN'T WORK, I DON'T HAVE THE PROGRAM ANYMORE HOW DO I GET IT TO WORK?


Most all mice are simple USB devices as far as most Operating System are concerned and a manufacturer supplied driver should not be necessary.
Do other USB devices work on your computer? Have you tried unplugging the wireless USB dongle that goes to the mouse and plugging it back in? Another option might be to unplug the wireless USB dongle, turn off your computer, wait 2 minutes, turn on your computer, wait until your Operating System loads fully and you are logged in, plug in the wireless USB dongle.
Also try changing the batteries in the mouse. Try another USB port for the wireless USB dongle. Other than that, it might be dead. You can call RadioShack for assistance if that does not pan out for you: 1-800-843-7422

Tip

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

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.

USB Drive


Make sure you are matching the compatibility of USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 between the devices (computer and USB devices).

USB 1.1 device will work in USB 1.1 and USB 2.0, but USB 2.0 devices will not work in USB 1.1 plug in the computer.

How many USB ports do you have in the computer? Which ones have you tried other pen drives in? List the USB ratings for each device and port in the computer to further help.

Have the other USB devices been formatted with other computers? The formatting on other systems might not be compatible.
