Unrecognized Mouse USB Device Even after Reinstalling Driver

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

I felt uneasy of using the right side USB port of my PC and so I switched the Nano receiver of the M305 Logitech mouse to the left side and used the available port to install the new scanner that I recently bought. Since then, the problem on my mouse has started.

The mouse stopped working, and this error message appeared “USB device is not recognized.” Therefore, I uninstalled the mouse driver, restarted my PC and reinstalled it again but it was still not working. I had also downloaded a new mouse driver and installed it to my PC, but it didn’t work.

The receiver cannot still be recognized. Was the switching of the usage of the USB port had caused the problem?

Any logical solution will be appreciated.

Thank you.
