Windows 7: USB Driver - General Fix for Problems

16 Nov 2014   #60

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
disable USB debugging

Go here. "". Follow the instructions to access developer options. DISABLE Usb debugging. If that doesn't work right off the bat, try rolling back the driver for the phone.

Windows 7 32 Bit Professional

I tried as suggested in the reply but still no luck. Spoke to Microsoft people. They say the problem may be due to some changes done by some Windows update. Unfortunately, I removed all old restore points one day before this problem started. Some say, re-formatting Windows is the only answer. I can get it done but what is the guarantee the problem will not crop up again after sometime. I have tried a number of Android phones and problems continue with all of them. But they are all recognized on my Laptop. One thing is clear, there is no driver issue with any cell. It is some Windows file which is corrupted. Can some one help me in finding some solution other than re-formatting as it will create lot of problem in bringing my PC to shape one again after re-formatting.

If in fact Microsoft suggests that the conflict may be caused by one of their sometimes flaky updates AND if the phone is recognized by the other comp AND if both comps have the same operating system, see if you can compare the update history of both comps to see if the problem comp has an update that the good one doesn't. I know that might seem problematic but remember that both probably won't have the same hardware and while it could be time consuming at least you may be able to isolate a conflict with otherwise congruous hardware.

While you haven't indicated how old your comps are, there is another tack to take with USB issues and that is if the problematic comp is a desktop there is a possibility that the power supply or the board is no longer delivering the appropriate levels of power to the physical ports, particularly if they are all plugged in and/or all the devices are trying to draw the maximum amount of power according to their individual specifications beyond what is available. As odd as that might sound, I have discovered over the years that if you aren't willing to try another power supply, sometimes switching to an external powered hub or turning off, say, the front USB ports in the bios and moving everything to the back or to a powered hub may allow a tired P.S. to deliver the necessary power to the remaining ports. Remember that if a controller decides it can't supply the appropriate power to any particular port in an internal hub it will shift the device to a root hub that requires less power which may actually inhibit the device. This is very common with security cameras and capture devices for instance. Could this condition be caused by an incompatible update or drivers too advanced for the ancient 8 year old basic Microsoft controller and root hub drivers? Why not? That is, whether they know it or not, why so many people have suggested that you try the anecdotal solution of switching physical ports.

Hey Pooch, I followed the tut exactly except for step 6 because it said "You need permission to perform this action" "You need permission from Administrators to make changes to this file" but i am an administrator on this laptop and the problem still occurs. and I looked at Take Ownership Shortcut but nothing happened.

Came to this topic after a BSOD problem 'fix' (updating graphics driver) corrupted my USB drivers
2 separate atikm?ag BSOD errors
and more specific to the USB problem
USB Ports Corrupted After Graphics Driver Update

I followed all the steps, and now, not only do I still not have working USB ports, but now I've lost my network printer.

It was only 2 Blue Screens - Why couldn't I have just left well enough alone?

Windows 7 Home Premium
Safe mode

Manifa, I had to do all the deletions mentioned (ALL, not just the greyed/faded out ones) but in Safe Mode, otherwise it didn't work. Yes, it was straight after a Windows Update, something got tweaked wrongly.
