Every single time, even if it has been previously plugged in. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated!
I had a similar problem also, I would make sure the usb port wires are still securely plugged into your motherboard (because I was installing a HDD, and bumped mine, and took me forever until I seen the wires was barely in!!!
Also go into your bios, and make sure the usb ports are either set to full-speed or high-speed. And also make sure the usb device that you're trying to plug in, is compatible with your OS, but I'm not really thinking thats your problem, and of course make sure you have the latest bios, and windows updates. Hope I helped
