    USB not recognised after years using it.


    I’ve come across an issue with an Xpress USB flush drive
    that I use daily on my main desktop. I have been configuring a new desktop
    where I have had to transfer data from one to the other. The new desktop
    recognises the flush drive but the desktop where I mainly used it does not
    recognise it anymore. Windows on my main desktop flagged only once a message
    saying it did not recognise the device, now when I plug the device in my main
    desktop it does not show in File Explorer although it is recognised and works
    perfectly well on the new desktop.
    Any ideas on how to get the main desktop to recognise the
    flush drive again?

    :)

    microphone stopped being recognised by Windows 10 - worked perfectly for two years

    My microphone stopped working. Windows 10 just doesn't recognise it if I plug it in or disconnect it. It was working perfectly a few hours ago and nothing has changed. Any suggestions? If I right click on the speaker icon, go to Recording Devices its not
    listed. And if I disconnect it by USB and reconnect it, it doesn't show any activity in the window relating to it. Any suggestions?
