Need software update ¶
Software may need to be installed or updated before any USB is plugged into the USB ports. For notebooks, do not use a USB port replica/hub instead plug the USB directly into your notebook’s USB port. The chipset drivers are the hardware that is connected to the USB ports and help your notebook recognize the USB, so it may need updating which can be found in your notebook programs, labeled as HP Support Assistant.
