2. Select the Hardware tab.

3. Click the Device Manager Button.

4. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.

5. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers’ node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.

6. Reboot the computer, and then reinstall the USB controllers.

7. Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.

Solution 3

If these two solutions don’t work, then this last thing going to work absolutely.

Just Restore your Laptop means system restore this you can find in control panel.

Goodluck 🙂

If you quickly and repeatedly insert and remove a USB device, the USB port may stop responding.

When the port is in this state, it no longer recognizes any USB device, and the USB device will not work.

To fix this problem, use the following methods in the order in which they are listed. After each method, check the USB device to see whether the problem is fixed. If the problem is not fixed, try the next method. 

Method 1: Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes

Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes. After your computer scans for hardware changes, it might recognize the USB device that is connected to the USB port so that you can use the device.

To scan for hardware changes, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.

  2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
  3. In Device Manager, click your computer so that it is highlighted.
  4. Click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
  5. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

If scanning for hardware changes fixed the problem, you are finished. If this method did not fix the problem, go to Method 2.

Method 2: Disable and re-enable the USB controller

Use Device Manager to disable and re-enable all the USB controllers. This lets the controllers recover the USB port from its unresponsive condition. The USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, try the steps in the Workaround section.

To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.

  2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
  3. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. 

    Note You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.

  4. Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it.
  5. Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  6. Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
  7. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

If the USB port recognizes the device and if you can use the device, you are finished.

Method 3: Fix it for me

To fix this problem automatically, click the Fix this problem link. Then click Run in the File Download dialog box, and follow the steps in this wizard. 

 
Microsoft Fix it 50052

Note this wizard may be in English only; however, the automatic fix also works for other language versions of Windows. 


Note If you are not on the computer that has the problem, you can save the automatic fix to a flash drive or to a CD, and then you can run it on the computer that has the problem.

Hello

You must have a "real" USB port on your laptop  to plug the Magic Jack directly into. It won't work right with non-powered USB hubs (it gets its Energy from the another USB jack, and it's pretty astonishing how it uses that small amount of power to let you dial, talk, and ring a phone or two). It will possibly  work on a powered USB hub (which comes with an AC power cube).
