Hardware Drivers :: USB Connected Device Is Not Charging
Sep 15, 2014
When I connect my DualShock 3 controller to my Windows 8.1 laptop it does not charge. I hear a beep, as in something was connected to the PC, then it seems to charge for a couple of seconds (lights flash on the controller) and then it stops. I am able to charge my phone and tablet so, it's just the DS3. It works fine on my Windows 7 computer, so it's not the controller.
I'm having an issue with a pc I am fixing. I reflowed the gpu and removed some viruses but now every time I restart the pc I get this message which I can fix with the installation media. But every time i fix it, once I turn the computer off again after using it normally for whatever amount of time, when I turn it on again, i get the blue screen again. What's causing it to happen every time?
I just bought an Aloenware 14 with the following specs:
Windows 8.1 Pro 1 tb sata 256 GB ssd 16gb ram Intel integrated graphics NVIDIA gforce card
While I was testing out the new racing game Assetto Corsa on my computer, I had not noticed that even though my battery was plugged in, it wasn't charging. Then my computer switched off. I reconnected the adapter but then the blue led on the charger went off.
When I take out the adapter, it glows blue, indicating that the charger is ready to charge.
When I plug it in to my laptop, it stops illuminating.
I am running Windows 8 on an Asus laptop. Two days ago it was doing updates and restarting. It did this 3 times, and on the third restart I received the blue error screen. It stated
"Recovery. Your pc needs to be repaired. A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed. Error code: 0xc0000225
You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media [like a disc or usb device] contact your system administrator or Pc manufacturer."
It gives me three options at the bottom [press enter to try again, press f8 for startup settings, press esc for uefi firmware settings]. If I press enter I get the same screen just with a bit more text. f8 does nothing. Uefi takes me to the boot menu. I have been trying to boot from a dvd r with a flash operating system in order to recover my data before it is reformatted. However, it does not seem to recognize the disc. When I select to boot from dvd rom, it tries, then on the black screen appears text saying restart and select boot device or install boot media and press a key. I tried taking disc out and putting bavk in, then pressing a key, nothing, same message.
I have to galaxy s2 one of of the can't connect to the pc and the other one can. The one which dosn't connect a messege pops up ( the last device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows dosen't recognize it.
Last part of the message, (Device Descriptor Request Failed). I get this, in Device Manager, and I have searched for an answer on the net. Also it is a Code 43. I went through my laptop, with an HP Technician this morning, I might add at a cost of 5p/minute, for 30 odd minutes. He has said that because I had gone over to Windows 8.1 and the recovery discs I made will not load, to put back in Windows 8. I have to send the laptop back for re-installing the OS, because Windows 8.1 do not have the update for my problem. Also the R.H. USB socket has a failure ID:0GAPTK-6T7716-MFPWWK-8D1Q03. I personally think that this is all what the problem is. a duff USB. Is this a cop-out???
Does Windows 8.1 having driver WHQL problems?
I only found out the problem with the usb when I tried to download a Mobi file to a Kindle for my wife. The other usb's work OK.
When I have a powered usb hub connected, my windows 8 will not start. The same usb hub connected to xp or to windows 7 does not cause problems. But it does in windows 8. So I need to disconnect that hub and start windows 8 without it and connect it after windows 8 has booted. Said hub has two drives attached: 1 32GB and a 1 TB. How come Windows 8 cannot handle it?
I am unsure whether I should enable "Automatically get device drivers, apps, and info for new devices" when installing Windows 8 Pro?
What exactly will it do?
If I enable this, will Windows then automatically install software packages/drivers from the manufacturer, like for example the Logitech Setpoint software for their keyboards and mouse and similar software for other devices? I don't want or need that. Or will it behave like in Windows 7?
On my other PC with Windows 7 I see in Windows Update that there are a couple of optional updates, including that Logitech stuff, as well as some driver for a BenQ monitor I have and also nvidia video drivers. This kind of stuff I don't want or need installed automatically as important updates in Windows Update - so I am worried if enabling this automatic driver stuff in Windows 8 is different than Windows 7? Meaning that it will get installed secretly/automatically?
However, it's fine that Windows finds them so I can manually go and check if I want to install any of it.
The key is that the updates are optional in Windows 7, but I have seen a few people complain about Windows 8 installing stuff like video drivers and mouse drivers automatically.
I've installed Microsoft Windows 8.1 Version 6.3.9600 Build 9600 on my HP 430 Notebook PC with 1 GB RAM and Pentium CPU @ 2GHz 2 Cores.
Display drivers are not working properly (i.e., everything appears bigger and unclear), earlier I'd successfully updated the display drivers and made it work using Device Manager. making a backup of the drivers (may be in .inf format) from the installed drivers so that I don't have to update it every time I re-install it.
The issue is finding the file location for my flash drive. My computer only has 3 external USB ports. I have tried all of them, when the flash drive is plugged in somewhere on my computer it should indicate another drive location. I can't find anything....not sure where to look or if I'm looking in the right place. All that shows is c: drive & E: drive. The E: drive is exclusive for the OS system restore (can't be used; not accessible for anything else). The only other is the DVD drive. Nowhere can I find evidence of the flash drive plugged into the USB.
I have all the essential drivers & everything is up to date [I have a task scheduler & Driver updater software installed. All drivers are up to date. This is a new computer, only 2 months old].
I have gone into device manager & checked all the USB & composite serial bus controllers to make sure they are powered on (my computer has an energy saving management thing & it will possibly deactivate the hubs when not in use). According to the power management settings they are not set to "sleep" but all ports are active. I can't figure out why I can't find my drive, nothing is appearing when I have the flash drive plugged in.
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).
I'm running a custom build PC on which I clean installed a (legal) copy of Windows 8.1
My system works fine except it can not install drivers for ANYTHING non-standard. Keyboard, mouse, memory sticks, HDDs all work fine, however when I plug in my phone/tablet/camera etc via USB, it fails to install drivers and I can't use my device.
Here's what device manager looks like with my (android) phone plugged in
And when I select Update driver software, I get this error:
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 16GB RAM
No USB device seems to be getting detected on my machine when I plug in a flash drive or an external hdd I get the distinctive sound from my speakers that an USB device is plugged in but nothing is showing up in "My Computer". I went through the event logs and found that Windows is failing to load the USB device (check image in attachment logs.jpeg). Recently I installed iTunes, so I though it might be causing this problem but I uninstalled it even then the problem persists. I don't want to format my machine just because of this small problem. Is this a driver conflict ? How do I find out why windows is all of a sudden failing to load the USB devices ? I have uploaded a copy of the saved logs detailing this failure(logs.zip).
I have a Seagate GoFlex 1 Tb USB 3.0 drive. All worked good until a week or two ago. Now the drive will not be recognized when plugged into a USB 3.0 port, the error given is "Unknown USB Device (Device Failed Enumeration).
If I plug the GoFlex drive into a a USB 2.0 port, it works. I can plug USB 2.0 devices into the USB 3.0 port and they work. I just can't plug my USB 3.0 drive into a USB 3.0 port and get it to work.
I have tried uninstalling the Unknown USB Device in Device Manager. I've also uninstalled all other instances of it failing to be recognized.
My motherboard has a VIA VL805 USB controller. I've used the drivers on Gigabyte's site and I've used VIA's drivers, no difference. I have the latest BIOS for my motherboard.
The drive does not show up in Disk Management when plugged into a USB 3.0 port. This shouldn't be a surprise since the device is unknown in the Device Manager.
I thought the problem might be with the USB 3.0 cable or the GoFlex drive's USB interface. So I bought a new USB 3.0 docking station and...same problem. The new docking station also fails enumeration. Basically what it boils down to is a USB 3.0 storage device will not be recognized in a USB 3.0 port. But they work when plugged into a USB 2.0 port.
I have a strange problem: connecting a Canon Powershot G10 digital camera via USB 2.0 to my Win 8.1 laptop presents no problem (info pops up).
But: Using the same cable connected to my desktop PC, there is no reaction whatsoever. No device manager listing, no error message. The USB ports are all working perfectly with other devices (sticks, external hard drive, wireless mouse & keyboard). Moreover, until some weeks ago, the Canon camera was recognized normally.
I want to change OWN Bluetooth device name. I am using windows 8 which comes with my new laptop Dell Inspiron 15z. The company has set my default bluetooth name as "User". However I want it to be changed but how.
I have tried going to Device manager, Devices and printers etc.
i Am trying to build my first PC with a Asus P8Z68M motherboard I have managed to get it all going but when I start it up its says - Using PCIE Gen 2 - cant find any device. What does this mean? Also, why does the PC beep at me whilst booting up?
So i purchased a Bluetooth portable speaker from a china it was very cheap and works great the website i got from is *REMOVED* and the model is the bv200 the only issue is that it has some annoying greetings and they are in chinese.
I want to know how can I access this device and delete or replace this greeting, it has a micro usb connection but when i plug it in to my computer it dosent show up in the device list.
A couple days ago, somehow, I turned on 'scanning your device' and now I get a black screen every time I plug my phone into the USB port to charge it. how to disable this 'feature'. It's really annoying because the connection is a bit worn, and it keeps connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...
I don't want anything to happen when I plug the phone into the USB port.
I'm running Windows 8.1 on a SDD with a second HDD along side it. Inside the Device Manager I disabled my second HDD and rebooted my system.
Windows started as normal, but a few key windows programs have stopped working: - Task Manager - Device Manager (basically all control panel functions) - Powershell (Command Prompt Works, but can't be opened with administrative rights)
The main problem is that I now can't enable my second HDD. Why the HDD is needed for these programs and how I can re-enable my HDD?
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.
I made a bit of an error, I bought a new joystick to play MS flight Sim X and installed it etc .
I went to uninstall the old driver before installing the new one, and made the error. I really don't know why I did it but I went into view devices, right clicked on the icon for the Joystick and removed it
Is there any way to get it back, I have tried to reinstall the driver but it still does not show on the devices panel and i cannot use it ..
