4 Solutions for Your USB Missed Connections: Part 1

Jun 10, 2011

Do your USB driver issues drive you up the wall? Sometimes your computer just won’t recognize your USB device, other times it flickers on and off! It’s crazy, ridiculous and downright frustrating!

Here’s a few of our troubleshooting methods to find the source of your driver issues:

  • Try the plug it in, plug it out method. It may seem silly but whatever you can disconnect, do it. So unplug the USB device or USB cable, then stick it back in. Give the port hole a cleaning with compressed air for good measure. If that doesn’t work try turning the computer on and off again.
  • If that still doesn’t work, you can go in and uninstall the drivers for your USB port on the computer – so long as you have the backup driver software. Uninstall and reinstall the driver, then restart the computer to make sure all changes have applied.
