    Hi there,

    I reinstalled my Windows 7 64 bits system on my FZ21S from scratch following the guide (great guide dude !).

    Everything works fine except one of the right USB port (rear) : whatever usb device I insert in it, it says "Device not recognized". The other USB port on the right (in the front) is working correctly. Any idea why?

    Thanks in advance,
    Samuel

    This sounds like a hardware issue. Are all the USB ports showing up fine in the device manager?

    The USB key appears as "Unknow device".

    Here is the list of devices I have under "USB bus controller" :

    Remove the device from the device manager and restart. When did the USB port stop working?

    Already tried to remove it and it does not work.

    Not sure when it stopped working, already a few months from now. I tried to open my VAIO once and maybe something got unplugged in there (although I doubt). I'll check. Thanks anyway for your answers.

    I have the Vaio CW and have tried to follow your guide for installing the latest nvidia driver update, even using safe mode and disabling signature checks. I still have had the 'checking system compatibility' screen come up when trying to execute the install package. Is there any way to skip over this part of the install process? I replaced the nvscz file using the one you provided and have still failed the compatibility check. Is there something else I need to do to make it work correctly? Thanks!
