can you try plugging it into a different port.
failing that do a system restore to before it stopped being recognized , this happened to me and restore worked.

have u tried a diff computer to plug it into the check this?

if this would be the 3rd item lost due to this, i would speak to M$ as goods are not fit for pupose, warning though they dont abide by sales of goods act so u need to push, i had to speaking to trading standards about them as they like using bully tactics ( assuming you have the same in nepal)

Hi, One solution i have seen that seems to work most of the time is:
1) Shut down laptop/Pc

2) Unplug(Disconnect from power source)

3) Remove battery(laptop only)

4) Go make a cup of coffee

5) Reboot

You need to allow any residual power in the system to be discharged, (i.e capacitors)

Hope it helps

20 days is not a great deal of time to restore back, updates will come back and check to see what programs will be affected by the restore. i gave you a link in my previous post for a tutorial on how to restore, restore wont format your computer but take it back to how it was 20 days ago.
