    Port no longer recognized by vista

    Hey everyone,

    I was on Skype video conference, and suddenly a blue screen with some errors that I could not read ...

    The pc has only restarted correctly (I think I saw: restarting after unplanned shutdown), but the camera "only" not working.

    Message: Port not recognized

    I changed port and everything works

    Why old port not working?

    Thank you for your advice.

    I think not. But the best way to find out is to test it. Plug another type of device on this port (eg USB key) and see if Windows detects the driver and help you to work properly.

    Go into device manage and see if your port is visible over there.

    1. Control panel -> Administrative tools -> Device manager
    2. If you see yellow mark on the one of the usb port then right lick on it and install or update drivers for it.
