I know this is probably a daft question but its really infuriating me ....
I have a joystick which for some considerable time have kept plugged into a particular USB port. I now want to swap USB ports but I can not get the computer to "recognise" it - even the "new hardware" wizard does not not open.
I'm using XP's built in drivers and have tried to manually configure the USB for the joystick using the "add new hardware wizard" all to no joy.
In Device Manager at bottom of list you will see USB click on the + so you see them all. right click each intern and choose uninstall. Then restart you computer it will reset all USB's. If you have the stick plugged into the one you want to use
