Having trouble with a device? Make sure everything is connected properly, the device has power, and that it’s set up correctly.

First, try checking your hardware

  • Unplug USB cables and wait for a little while for the device driver to be unloaded by Windows, and then plug the device back in.
  • Try using a different USB port on your PC.
  • If you use a USB hub between the device and the PC, make sure the hub has power. If it’s still not working, try removing the USB hub and plugging the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
  • Make sure that the cables on your device aren’t damaged in any way.
  • Check any battery-powered devices to see if they are fully charged or have fresh batteries.
  • Make sure there’s no dirt blocking keys or sensors.
