    USB Device Not Recognized error

    Banned
    My old HP had issues, when I plug usb cable in my laptop it says "USB Device Not Recognized" and all that malfunction bull.

    Bought a new printer and same ! Works sometimes and sometimes it doesnt.

    Replaced the USB cable, no luck

    What could be the possible problem.

    thanks

    same problem.



    Printer powered from USB partially?

    update the drivers
    youll be able to find the printer ones on the hp site somewhere
    once youve downloaded and updated
    restart your machine
    plug in your cable
    then once its recognised
    restart again with it plugged in and see if you still have probs

    same problem.



    yeah, she she asked me to have a look because her 3G dongle would only work when she held it in, i stuck it in another usb port and its worked ever since.


    oh you're having the same problem with different ports :oops:

    What is the model number & age of the laptop?

    Do you get the windows updates automaticly? cause where was a Q update on usb drivers
    Also check HP site for drivers, sometimes there are updates for USB issues.
