actually dead usb ports ARE a possible symptom of the failing motherboard so common to that series.

Re: hp dv6000 USB device not recognized..why???

I too have a HP with USB port problems - mine are of two types - the persistent one (ie I can't solve it) is an unknown USB devise which is windows thinks is there but is not.

Another problem I hava had & solved is "Dead" USB ports. I solved this by unplugging device & removing all cables for 5 minutes & then re-plugging all cables & magically all USBs can back to life. In my case I had to unistall the roots in windows safe mode & reboot.

Let me know if it works?

Paul

PS. if anyone out there can solve my problem please reply.

Re: hp dv6000 USB device not recognized..why???

I'm definitely not an expert, but on one of the other forums here in HP I found someone who suggested removing the battery for a few minutes.  It seems there is a capacitor someplace that doesn't drain off.  I have a pavilion dv7 1150us and this morning after an HP update downloaded my USB ports didn't work, but they were fine just before the download.  I followed the suggestion on removing the battery and "poof" the USB's are working again.  How long I don't know, but the're fine now.

Oh, THANK YOU!!! I just spent a half-dozen hours over three days trying to get my "USB device recognized," and driving myself crazy. I removed the battery for a moment, put it back in, inserted my wireless mouse USB part, and it WORKS!!!!! Bless you.
