USB port not working after Windows updates

My laptop does not recognize a USB device I've used in the past.  If I restart the computer after trying to plug it, I get a system repair and it cannot solve the problem.  The only way I could fix is to do a system restore in Sfe Mode, to a point, 2 weeks ago.  The only changes since then have been Windows updates.  How can I fix it

Restoring the last known time that everything worked as you want!  Check that it works.  Then start to install the updates at the same time with restarts and tests in between.

  • USB printer not recognized after Windows update

    OT: usb device not recognized

    After that suddenly stop, reboot, done, the device is plugged in where the printer indicates that it does not recognize the device. I said abattissent unplug it and reconnect it and if it doesn't work me to replace... I re install the driver for the Hpdeskjet940c but nothing works...

    Hello grasshopper.

    This problem may be caused mainly by broken printer drivers, this could have been caused when you installed the updates. I suggest that you start with a restoration of the system on the computer by choosing a restore point when it was working fine.

    a. Click Start, type system restore in the search box and then in the list click on the system restore program.

    b. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

    (c) in the System Restore dialog box, click on choose a different restore point and then click Next.

    d. in the list of restore points, click a restore point created before you started having the problem, and then click Next.

    e. click Finish.

    You can see the following article for reference:

    You can also try driver restore on the computer and check if it helps.

    To roll back a driver in Windows send the driver to the version that was finally installed for the device. Restoring a driver is an easy way to return a driver for a working version when a driver update fails to fix a problem or maybe even a new problem.

    a. open the Device Manager. To do this, click Start, type device in the area Manager search and then click on Device Manager in the list programs.

    b. right click on the device for which the previous version of the driver is desired and then click Properties.

    c. click the tab drivers.

    d. click on Roll Back Driver.

  • USB ports not working no-Windows 7 on Imac


    I ve just installed Windows 7 on an Imac end 2012, using an external hard drive and running in Bootcamp.
    Everything went well, Win 7 works perfectly, but all USB ports do not work. Everything I plug into their t doesn't get recognized (flash memory usb cards, mouse usb, external drives...).   They work in OSX.
    All other ports (ethernet, audio, output Thunderbolt) work very well under Win 7.
    What I tried, no still no usb operation:
    -Reinstall Win 7 (just to check that I used a mouse usb, what worked very well right up until the last reboot needed to complete the installation.) Subsequently died)
    -reinstall all software Bootcamp (actually, fix, that you can't just unninstall and reinstall) has done that several times...
    -tried to uninstall the usb ports in Device Manager, I couldn't use my Apple wireless mouse more, so I had to restart after the first. Yes, after a restart, he says it's to install the missing disks, yes they are all perfectly... However - install no USB
    -No, no problems appear in the resolution of the problems of the unit
    Do you have any other ideas I could try?
    Thank you very much.

  • Qosmio F750 - touch buttons does not work after Windows update 10

    I use a laptop Qosmio F750 (PQF75A-02Y00Q).

    Installed on the computer the previous operating system was Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Then, I upgraded the operating system to Windows 64-bit edition 10.

    As expected, this change would cause problems to appear. The thing that is really bothers me right now is that the touch of the keys in the top right of the keyboard do not work as expected.

    The buttons respond always if you touch them, but they do nothing on the screen. for the most part. When I touch the Volume Up / Volume keys down, they work as expected. However, the key Mute, the button Play/Pause, the Wifi key on / off and Mode (as well as the key to toshiba bulletin board) eco button do nothing.

    Curiously, when I manually turn eco mode from the power settings mode eco button again turns the green.

    My last question is, how can I fix this so that ALL keys work as expected?


    I noticed that the recognition facial webcam was funny things as well, but everything what needed to be done was to recalibrate the installation for that to make it work again.
    Curiously, all the FN key functions work well.

    In addition to the question in bold, there are all the other drivers should I install to improve/restore functionality to my laptop? As the page of Windows 8?


    I have the same problem since update 8.1 and now after 10 update, even more I lost the 3d display function since I updated to 8.1.
    MY QOSMIO is PQF75E-F750

  • Laptop HP - 15-r213ns: hotkeys (keys of wifi sound, brightness), does not work after windows update


    I have a HP laptop - 15-r213ns (ENERGY STAR) with windows 8.1

    Last night, after an update of windows, the shortcut of the brightness (F2 and F3) volume (F7 and F8), wifi (F12) and keys all others have stopped working.  I can always change the brightness and volume using windows, but I can't do more using the keys.

    The function keys are working, as refresh F5 or F3 Browse. I noticed that before I had to press the FN key for this and now she does without the FN + Fx, so I guess that the update of windows must have changed something here.

    They used to work fine before the update. I reinstalled the display drivers (NVIDIA G-FORCE 820 - M) and looked for new drivers or update drivers using HP Support Assistant, but everything is up-to-date.

    I was looking for hot key factors in the page of HP drivers for my product but could not find any keyboard, drivers or software related shortcut keys.

    any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,


    Hi, Marco:

    The system of the event utility is supposed to get the Fn keys to work.


    This package contains the HP System Event utility for the laptop models running a supported operating system. HP System Event Utility allows the special programming function keys.

    File name: sp70439.exe

    You can find this file in the Software - Solutions section of the driver for your model page.

  • Re: Satellite L500 - Wifi does not work after Windows Update

    The wireless on my Satellite L500 worked perfectly before you update windows. However, after the updat when you try to connect to a wireless connection, it says that "no connection is available.

    I then clicked on fix to try to find a solution. Then the message "the diagnostic policy service does not work. Using Ctrl + Alt + Delete I went on services and attempted to start the DPS manually, but the message "Diagnstic political service on Local computer started and stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs. »

    This message puzzled me enough as it is said that the Wifi is infact on however in a attempt to FN + F8 F8 option does not appear. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    For Satellite L500, there are already some threads here in the forum:

  • Pavilion x 2 N005TU: ELAN touchpad does not work after windows update 10

    Hi, I've just updated my Pavilionx2 N005TU for windows 10 yesterday. After update, tochpad is not working and keep turn off every time, even I allow him - he'll be disenabled after closing. And I have to activate whenever I turn on my laptop. You have a permanent solution for this? Thank you.

    PS. I already checked for the new update of device - but no update to touchpad so far.

    Hi Amm_S04, as you know windows 10 has just come out, so it will take time for all drivers (including touchpad drivers) to get the new updated version supporting this new windows. For now you can also check here drivers

    Although I would advice you to wait and update the driver through windows update as soon as it is available.

  • Keyboard does not work after windows update

    The keyboard of my laptop S series suddenly stopped working after that she completed an update of windows. Another strange thing is that the wireless only turns off even when the laptop is turned off. Everything else seems to work fine except for two things.

    First thing I did was to restore the system back to before the update of windows, but nothing has changed. Then I tried to uninstall the keyboard driver then by restarting the computer, after which it automatically reinstalled the driver but the keyboard still did not work.

    Then I "refreshed" system, but nothing has changed then either. And finally, I reset the factory settings and for a little while, the wireless light turns off, but then he came back even if I had not turned on the laptop. (Update: I just changed the laptop and the wireless light disappeared so... If all goes well he will not return as a sign of improvement.) There was no change to the keyboard.

    Additional details on my laptop that may or may not have something to do with the problem:

    It is currently running Windows Pro 8 on a 64 bit system and is less than a year.

    I accidentally spilled tea really diluted on the laptop a month ago, but the laptop was working again fine until windows update a few days ago. There is no significant problem caused by the spill other than a few sticky keys who take off on their overtime and that the sensors of the keyboard backlight no longer works correctly.

    Any advice on what else I might be able to try to try to again take the keyboard in a usable state would be great.

    Hi rhel!

    If the keyboard still does not work while in the BIOS, then it means that you have here a hardware failure, and the only way to solve that is to have the repaired computer. You can visit this page to start the repair process.
