How ironic... I go to make this post, and it stops working again.. this is.. oh, maybe the fifth time tonight..
So here's the issue. I've searched through the forum, and I've posted elsewhere, no resolve for my issue though. Maybe some new insights? Cause I'm going crazy.
I have a Dell Inspiron (all details in my profile) and I actually spent about an hour and 1/2 with Dell itself on the phone. They seem to be less technically adept than myself, so whatever.
I keep getting a "USB Device not Recognized" error. I have a Logitech Thumb trackball, and said trackball has zero issues on any other computer. I got this computer as a christmas present and it's been happening ever since. I'm running Windows 7 premium home, 64 bit, and frankly I'm going batty. EVERY time this happens I have to shut down my computer, unplug it, and take out the battery, wait a minute and then put it back together. It's quite the hassle when I'm trying to do my homework. I've updated drivers, there's zero hardware issues, I even DL a supposed fix (that I got the link for here) and zip, zero, zilch, nada. I don't have a disk for Windows 7 as it came installed on the laptop, I have a 2 year warranty with Dell, but frankly it's been happening since day one, so what would a re-install do for me? I'm so friggin frustrated it's unreal. It's hard to do college math when you have to shut down and restart your computer every 20 minutes.
Please, someone, anyone, help me out here. I'm half tempted to just say screw windows 7 and install my XP. I've had to shut the bubble telling me that what isn't plugged in anymore isn't recognized..ARGH please help.
