Windows XP, suddenly “USB device not recognized” message

Posted: September 21st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: howto, idiots | Tags: , , , , , | No Comments »

USB stopped working, suddenly! F#uck! Nothing on USB is working, but it did! WTF can you do?

On MS support the KB articles are not offering a straight to the point solution for this.

So, I have searched the internet and after a few searches I have found this article (Google PR 3 page):

http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/usb-device-not-recognized/

The answer is:

UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY!!! and wait a few minutes to have all residual power consumed.

So, I did it.

And, it worked.

I had a 3 m USB cable extension for a USB WIFI adapter and, after removing it, is all good. It works!!!

Later edit:

This is a bit extreme, it still works if you shutdown the computer, unplug the power cord, push the buttons of the computer a few times, plug-in USB devices and wait for a minute or so.

One cause of this may be the grounding of the appliances, high density of wireless devices, unshielded USB cable, or, a combination of these.
