Recently I've being getting USB not recongized errors. I've searched on the internet and tried turning power off, removing battery since I have a laptop, removing all USB devices, waiting 30 minutes and restarting. It worked, for a couple of hours. Then the same thing would happen again. All USB ports will get usb not recongized, regardless of what I plug in. I've also tried USB hubs, did not work. The USB ports do supply power through, as I can charge my phone. I've reinstalled all USB drivers, which didn't fix the problem. HP Pavilion dv5 laptop, windows vista. Thanks for any help.

Try running your computer in "Safe Mode", then using your USB devices.
If the problem exists in safe mode, you could be experiencing a hardware issue.
If the problem disappears in safe mode..you have a "driver" issue most likely.

*Have you tried installing the most recent USB drivers from HP's website?

*Were any Windows updates installed prior to getting this error?
(Windows updates can install hardware drivers that can cause issues)...
