Hardware Drivers :: USB Mouse Sometimes Not Recognized At Startup

Nov 20, 2013

Over the past three weeks or so, there have been probably seven times my wireless USB Nexus Silent Mouse has not been recognized on cold computer startups (usually morning). Windows 8 (Pro x64) throws up a message that a USB device wasn't recognized, and I don't see a mouse cursor. Unplugging and replugging the USB mouse's stick, which is in a port on the front of the computer, solves it. The mouse driver is up to date, changing USB ports hasn't made a difference and the batteries are fine (and have been changed).

Hardware Drivers :: USB Hub - USB Device Not Recognized?

Jun 10, 2014

I recently bought a cheap USB Hub off eBay. I plugged it in and connected my devices and it always works.

However, about 75% of the time when Win 8 boots, I get about a dozen "USB connect/disconnect" sounds and a window that says "USB Device not recognized". (sometimes 3 or 4 of these windows)

I've searched for this issue but every post that I find provides a recommendation for a USB device that is not working. None of these suggestions applies because after all the boot noise, the hub and it's devices work. It just seems like Win 8 is having trouble recognizing the Hub but keeps trying and eventually succeeds.

The Hub is plugged into a USB 2 port with a scroll wheel mouse and a Dymo LabelWriter 400 connected to the hub.

Win 8.1 Pro X64
Asus CM3870
Intel Core i7-3770

Hardware Drivers :: External HD Not Recognized

Mar 10, 2013

My Seagate GoFlex 500 isn't showing up in Windows. Disk Management sees it, but there's no feasible option there. It's not a blank drive, so I can't make a new simple volume, only delete it.

I have important data on there. What gives?

Hardware Drivers :: DVD Drive No Longer Recognized

Sep 23, 2013

I have a TSST 208DN DVD drive installed in a Win 8 Pro Toshiba C855 machine. I am no longer able to use the drive.

The problem began with my always having to reinstall the drivers upon reboot. I found a solution, or so I thought, that advised me to delete my upper and lower filters entries in the registry. I only had an LowerFilters entry for AnyDVD. I deleted it and can no longer use the drive.

Dev Mgr shows drive with yellow excl. triangle (see image #1 below) and this msg under the general tab of properties - Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19) (see image #2 below). I have drivers from MS and Toshiba installed (see image #3 below)

image #1

image #2

image #3

I have already uninstalled and reinstalled and rebooted many, many times. These are my current registry entries:


I have uninstalled and reinstalled AnyDVD. I have put back in the LowerFilters key and deleted it and rebooted many, many times. The registry entries look like those on my other laptop with the exception of lowerfilters set to AnyDVD and upperfilters set to the manufacturer's driver (GEARaspiWDM) and that machine works just fine - for about 10 minutes and then overheats and shuts down - it's a Dell - but that's another story.

Hardware Drivers :: WD Passport Ultra Not Recognized?

Dec 29, 2013

In the process of installing a new Win 8.1 machine, going mostly OK, but I have a WD Passport Ultra that is not working with it at all. I plug it in, it lights up and spins, but never shows up as a drive either in "This PC" or in disk management; nothing at all in device manager either. I would have said defective unit, but it works perfectly on all my other installs including Vista, 7, 8.0 and even a Mac! Don't know what to do here, I can certainly access the files on another machine and transfer, but I would like to use this drive with the new machine...

Hardware Drivers :: PS To PC Converter - USB Device Not Recognized?

Mar 27, 2014

Recently my "PS to PC Converter" USB device, as shown in image was not recognized by my laptop. It was working fine as of yesterday, where I was playing FIFA with my friend. Then today when I plug it in, it says USB device not recognized even though I can still on the analog but the controller is not detected by the game. Other games that I use to play with controllers are also not detecting the device. I kept reinstalling the driver but still the same message. Restarting computer, turning it off for a few minutes did not solve my problem too. I'm pretty sure my USB ports are fine as my mouse, keyboard and hard drives are working in all of the USB ports.

EDIT: I check the Device Manager and found a yellow exclamation mark on Other Devices named "Unknown device", I check the properties and says Code 43 on the status. I Enable/Disable it, still the same message.

Hardware Drivers :: External HDD Not Recognized In USB 3.0 - Windows 8

Jul 27, 2014

Few days ago I bought a new Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E540. It has two USB3.0 ports and one USB2.0. I bought the machine without OS and installed Windows 8.1 Pro(x64) myself. Everything seems to be working fine except when I want to use My WD Elements 1TB external HDD in USB 3.0 port. It just doesn't get recognized. In USB 2.0 port it works fine.

What I've gathered and tried so far :
- Device manager does not show anything not even Unknown Device , yet my USB 3.0 Kingston pendrive works fine out of the box in the same slot
- I'm pretty sure the USB power is not the issue because the WD HDD , when plugged, starts blinking for a while , then lights up fulltime and i can feel and hear the drive spinning
- I've disabled USB selective suspend in my Power plan
- I've disabled Fast Startup
- In msconfig , im stuck at "Selective startup" (if changed it doesnt even let me APPLY and switches back to Selective right after I close/change tab in msconfig, I tried doing it in safe mode , same thing)

Using my harddrive in USB3.0 speed is essential for me.

Hardware Drivers :: WD External HD Not Being Recognized I/O Error

Aug 22, 2013

So I have a WD external HD with all of my research data as well as some text books and other important things on there and for some reason I got an I/O error and after that the drive does not show on the computer anymore. The computer recognizes that there is a drive there and will read that it is a WD passport but cannot tell the size of the disk and will not register it as an external drive whose media I can explore and work with. What is wrong and how can I retrieve the data?

Hardware Drivers :: HP M6 DV6 Truevision Webcam Not Recognized / Installed

Sep 2, 2013

HP's support site for the specific model M6-1035 lists no driver for the webcam. it was there under windows 7 but I don't recall ever deliberately installing a driver for it - I assumed win7 had it.

Windows 8.1 does not. nothing in 'devices', nothing under device manager, and no driver listed on the HP support site. the latter is not surprising since they don't provide a host of drivers for the laptop.

No keyboard-specific drivers [like for the function keys etc], wrong firmware for optical, and other small things.

Any generic cam driver that will function?

Hardware Drivers :: IPod Classic Is Not Recognized By Win 8 Machine?

Aug 30, 2013

When I switched to a Windows 8 laptop from my MacBook, my iPod Classic is not recognized by the Win 8 machine. I've tried to copy and paste music files from the HD to the iPod, but once the iPod is ejected, no music shows up on the iPod. I've downloaded iTunes, which seems to recognize when the iPod is plugged in, but I haven't been able to move any music from the HD to the iPod.

My portable hard drive stops showing up all of a sudden. It is connected to a USB hub. When I go to 'Disk Management' in 'Computer Management', the hard drive shows up as Unknown - Not Initialised. Also this hard drive works while not using the USB hub, and the USB hub works as well with other devices.

Hardware Drivers :: Hard Drive Recognized But Not Usable?

Jan 18, 2014

I built my computer a couple weeks ago and am running windows 8.1. I currently have a 128gb SSD and a 1tb internal hard drive (WD Caviar Blue) I obviously used the ssd to boot windows and currently windows is detecting my 1tb hard drive but it is not usable. I have tried diskpart commands to clean and format and I keep getting the error message "DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". The hard drive was brand new and cables are fine. This is what everything looks like..

Hardware Drivers :: Flash Drive Not Recognized In One PCs USB 3.0 Ports

Sep 15, 2014

I have Silicon Power Blaze B20 flash drive, which is not recognized by my desktop PC's both USB 3.0 ports. The flash drive's light blinks when pugged in, but no reaction from PC's side. I have tried to plug cord between flash drive and PC, but no change. It does recognize the device when plugged in any other USB 2.0 port. And the device is being recognized by other computer's both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, so I assume it is PC's fault, but what it is. My PC's USB 3.0 ports do recognize any other USB 3.0 devices - my external HDD, other USB 3.0 devices but this drive.

Hardware Drivers :: Win 8.1 Pro 64 Bit - External HDD With ESATA Connection Not Recognized

Dec 31, 2013

I am running Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit. I have a WD "red" HDD connected externally in a NexStar-NX box. The NexStar supports USB 3.0 and eSATA. The USB 3.0 connection works fine and shows up in WIN 8.1 disk manager and all files are accessable. When I use a eSATA cable (have tried 2 different ones) the HDD is not recognized by Win 8.1. Win 7 HP 64 bit sees the eSATA connection and all works well. The HDD, when using the eSATA connection, shows up in the post boot screen as I have the HDD listed in the BIOS. I would like to use the eSATA connection as I'm short of USB 3.0 ports on my ASUS Maximus V Gene mob. Is this a Win 8.1 quirk?

Hardware Drivers :: USB Drive Constantly Disappearing And Not Being Recognized?

Mar 11, 2013

Having problem with a USB drive constantly disappearing and not being recognized?

My current solution is to delete drivers in device manager then wait until they load again. This is a temporary solution. I am using a VivoTab ME400C tablet pc with full Windows 8 in a public environment as a kiosk and users are exporting data via the usb. I cannot ask people to constantly delete drivers before they try an export to a pen drive.

Hardware Drivers :: Not Recognized As Admin - Can't Install Driver For WiFi

Aug 27, 2014

I work at a hotel, and we are having issues with our public computer (Acer Aspire XC-603G desktop) connecting to the internet. As it seemed like an issue in the wall, I decided the easiest way to fix it would be to buy a wifi USB adapter (NETGEAR N300) and just use that instead. However, when I try to install the driver from the included CD, it keeps giving me an "access is denied" error.

The account I'm using says it has administrator privileges, though that's been giving me issues as well. The person who initially set up the computer only set up one account, which anyone could use. I added another, gave it the administrator rights, and removed them from the original. However, even though it says the new account is an administrator account, messages often pop up and say that I can't do what I'm trying to do because I only have standard privileges.

Hardware Drivers :: USB Connected Hard Drive No Longer Recognized?

Feb 24, 2014

I connected a hard drive to my PC. I was able to read/write to it just fine. In fact, I've used it various times in the past. I just tried connecting it again now, and the drive is not showing up on Windows 8.1 at all. It's not being detected.

I connected the drive to a Mac to see if it was the drive, but it wasn't: the Mac was able to read it just fine.

I've had a similar situation in the past with this machine, where my iPhone was, seemingly out of nowhere, no longer recognized by the system. Plugging it in would register on the phone, but the PC wouldn't acknowledge its existence.

I'm completely at a loss as to why this can be. Other drives connect to the PC just fine (in fact, I have another one connected now, as I write this, backing up some data).

Hardware Drivers :: USB Not Recognized (Device Descriptor Request Failed)

Apr 30, 2014

I have a flash drive that I previously used in public computer lab (where many viruses linger) the other day to do my work. As I got home, the flash drive isn't working anymore, saying "USB Device not Recognized". I also noticed that it really took me a while to finally, safely remove it from the computer lab's PC. So I actually wonder if it actually removed my flash drive properly.

On Device Manager, it says "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)".On the Properties, the device status says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) -- A request for the USB device descriptor failed."

My flash drive is a Kingston Flash Drive DataTraveler (DT100) 16GB, and my PC is running on Windows 8.1.

Things I have tried:

- Shut down my PC, unplugged power and removed battery, waited for a while, booted my PC and try plugging in again.

- On Device Manager, uninstalled it and scanned for hardware changes, it still returns as "Unknown USB Device".

- On Device Manager, I clicked "Update Driver Software..." and it returns me a message saying "The best driver software for your device is already installed".

- Unfortunately, when I visited Kingston's website to check if there is driver for this specific flash drive, there isn't any... "There are no downloads or drivers available for this product".

- Used Windows 8's Troubleshooting tool. It only detected my problem, but was unable to fix it.

- I also tried plugging it to other devices that are running on Windows XP, Vista and 7, none does any better.

Hardware Drivers :: Mini-PCIe SATA Card Not Recognized By MSI AM1i Mobo

Sep 15, 2014

I have a newly home built MSI AM1i motherboard and have it running fine with Windows 8.1. I am trying to expand the number of SATA ports it has (comes with only 2). The mobo has a mini-PCIe card slot.

I purchased a AsMedia 106x, 2-port, mini-PCIe card (had to use a ribbon-cable extender to get it connected).

That all appears to be fine. I struggled a bit with drivers, but eventually found a Windows 7 AsMedia 106x driver set. Loaded that, seems ok.

Problem: When I go to device mgr, it does not see the added 2-ports. When I first boot up, during the black-screen phase, it does report that the AsMedia device is loading and will actually find/name a hard drive that I attach to one of the new ports. It then almost looks like it will load windows, give the nice little blue windows 8 flag and just sits there. I can hear a drive cycle every 2-3 seconds, but nothing.

I eventually have to hit the power button to shut down. If I disconnect the drive added to the new card, it will start up. The AsMedia device looks to load during a black-screen phase, but reports no device found, and then loads Win 8 Correctly. When I get in, again, no SATA ports shown for the new device.

Hardware Drivers :: Mouse For Surface Pro 2 That Is Not USB

Apr 2, 2014

Just got a surface Pro 2 for work. In addition to the keyboard I need a mouse. normally a cheap USB mouse would do.
however, I also have one of those 4G wireless network USB dongles that takes the only USB port.

Can any of the other ports be used for a mouse? I think it also has Bluetooth, but ideally don't rely on a mouse needing a battery.

unrelated to this, how does one use the camera properly in desktop mode? All I read it is using the cloud? what? I just want to access the pictures I take somehow. and can the camera zoom at all?

Hardware Drivers :: USB Mouse Works Only After Restart?

Jul 15, 2014

Recently I bought a new lap top and installed Windows 8.1

I have an issue with the Mouse/s. I tried 2 different mouses and I encountered the same problem with both of them, so I know it's not a mouse problem. Note that both of these mouses work perfectly on my other/older/Windows 7 and previously Windows XP lap top, so it's not a mouse issue. It's either a driver problem or something else.

I have tried all 3 USB ports I got and it does the same thing.

When I turn on the lap top, if the mouse is plugged or unplugged and I plug it afterwards, it doesn't work. If however I turn on the lap top, plug in the mouse, and the restart the lap top, when it restarts the mouse works fine all up until the lap top is turned off again. And then to get it to work again I have to turn on the lap top, with the mouse plugged, or plug the mouse after it's turned on, then restart the lap top, and then the mouse works fine.

Apparently, this is not very convenient. It's a major inconvenience.

p.s I never had this issue before on any other PC computer or lap top, whether it was Windows XP or Windows 7. So it's either a Windows 8.1 issue or the new lap top issue, or a driver issue.

Hardware Drivers :: Razer Mouse - USB 3.0 Port Using 2.0

Sep 15, 2014

I got a new mouse a couple of days back, it's one of those fancy Razer mouses with 12 buttons on the side that is used for gaming and stuff. I have an issue when I try to use usb 3.0 instead of 2.0 ports. ( my tower only has like 2 2.0 ports so I try to use those for other things ) I am trying not to buy a usb hub before somebody says it

On games ( fullscreen or Windowed ) quickslot controls where you can use the numbers on your mouse I can't use the 3.0 port as it won't recognize the side buttons but it will on the 2.0 port.

I am guessing this is a driver problem but I am unsure. Neither the native mouse driver for Windows nor the fancy Cloud Synapse driver 2.0 works.

Hardware Drivers :: SD Card Not Being Recognized With Internal Card Reader?

Sep 15, 2014

I have the very latest Windows 8.1 update.

My internal multi card reader has been working fine for just under a year but just recently it has stopped recognising SD cards. When I insert a card it normally opens an explorer window but now it does nothing and does not show in file explorer.

Though if I click on .. file explorer/manage/disk management .. it then opens an explorer window for the card.

I have the setting in autoplay - memory card and removable drive set to open explorer.

I don't think the card reader is becoming faulty.
