  1. Can't install windows from a USB


    Went into advance system start up, formatted windows from cmd. I try to boot from the USB to install windows, however it then says automatic system repairing, diagnosing pc and takes me to the system start up. Usb was formatted on FAT32 and I used Rufus to set make it bootable. I have tried it with uefi on and off. Please help asap

    :)

  4. Can't install windows from a USB

    windows can`t communicate with epson 7620 scanner using usb

    Hi Lake,

    Thank you for your response.

    As per the description, I understand that the Epson device/program is not compatible with the USB 3.0.

    I suggest you to connect it to the USB 2.0 and check if the same issue persists.

    I suggest you to disable and re-enable the USB controllers. The following steps will uninstall all the USB controllers and then re-install them:

    • Right click on Start, and then click
      Run.
    • Type devmgmt.msc and then click
      OK
      . Device Manager opens.
    • Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    Note: You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.

    • Right click the first USB controller under
      Universal Serial Bus controllers
      , and then click Uninstall to remove it.
    • Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under
      Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    Note: Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.

    Also refer to:
