USB Mouse Not Recognized – Here is What You Should Do!
I recently updated to Windows 7 and have been pretty happy with its performance, especially with its power management among other things.
However, I faced an issue that had an easy fix (only if I knew what it was) but took me quite a while to figure it out.
I put the laptop to sleep and when I brought it back up it refused to recognize my wireless USB mouse “USB Device Not Recognized”. Though the USB ports were actively recognizing that a new device has been attached it just failed to install it and showed the following error in the taskbar.
I disabled the USB ports and enabled them again, reinstalled Mouse drivers, restarted the computer, scanned hardware for changes, etc..
None of the troubleshooting steps I performed helped. There was one last thing left to do (which I should have actually started with!)
Here is what helped!
Shutdown the laptop and pull the power adapter off the laptop. Once that is done, pull the batter off from the back of the laptop and put it back in after a minute.
Now when you restart your laptop hopefully everything should be back to how it should be and your mouse will work just fine, mine did!
Also, this issue is not restriced to Windows 7 and is kown to happen with other versions of Windows platforms and the solution mentioned in this article applies to all the other platforms as well.
