      Hi All

      Just encountered an issue where my USB port isn’t recognizing any USBs or my phone. Nothing pops up or shows that it a USB is connected. The USB port however still provides power as if i plug in my phone it will charge. Have updated usb drivers, uninstalled usb drivers, reinstalled usb drivers and nothing has worked. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks

        I had to do something like this once on my desktop computer a few months ago, it’s worth a shot at least. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/usb-device-not-recognized-in-windows-7/8106a712-a13e-4ca5-b82e-c3961cc254b1?page=3&auth=1

        1 – Go to your C:\Windows\inf folder

        2 – Make sure these files (at a minimum, there might be others) are listed in that folder:

        – usb.inf
        – usb2.inf
        – usbport.inf
        – usbprint.inf
        – usbstor.inf
        – usbvideo.inf
