What kind of scanner & tablet is it?
Is the adapter plugged into the outlet & is there a power button?
Did you try plugging the scanner to the same USB as the webcam?
After you plug the device into the PC, What does the Device Management display?
Device Management = Start ? Run ? devmgmt.msc
Last week, I forgot what happened, but something I clicked on caused my entire computer to freeze, so I had to restart it manually. I went to shut it off and shut it back on.
Once I did that, I noticed my tablet, my mic, my webcam, and my scanner (my USB devices) weren't working. I uninstalled the drivers, unplugged them all, restarted, and then the mic and webcam (although no picture) are being read by the computer and working.
But as for my tablet and scanner, there's no power coming through them. I noticed my USB plugs in the front of my computer were broken (the plastic thing that held them in snapped off) so I plugged them into the back of the computer. I did that, and did the same thing,(uninstalled, reinstalled drivers, restarted) but still nothing out of them.
I even tried another tablet on my computer and they're still not being read. Plus they have no power (their power lights are off)
WHAT DO I DO?
