What if a laptop doesnt see a tablet

Proper tablet installation

Learn tablet packaging. It may have a boot disk with the necessary programs and services to successfully connect your device to your computer. In addition, the tablet must be accompanied by a user’s manual, which specifies the features of the organization of data transmission.

Find out which system configuration is sufficient to successfully connect your tablet to your computer. Perhaps your computer or laptop is severely outdated and doesn’t keep in touch with a device like a tablet. In this case, you need to update the configuration to the specified minimum requirements.

Check the functionality of the USB cable. It may have cracks or cracks and no connection between the two devices is established. Replace the cable with a new one. Also make sure the USB socket you connect your tablet to is in working order. You can find this out by connecting the tablet to another loose nest.

System Setup

Complete all unnecessary programs and processes in the system currently running by pressing the “Ctrl + Alt + Del” key combination. Often, they take away quite a lot of resources, which makes the system slow down, and the computer’s identification of the connected device takes too long. Disable the system antivirus or firewall because it is quite common for these programs to block the connection of new devices, considering this process suspicious.

Connect your tablet to your computer and pay attention to the taskbar. It must display an icon that tells you that a new device has been detected on the system. Click on it and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation. Make sure you have an active Internet connection as the system may try to download missing drivers on the network. If no icon appears on the taskbar when you connect a tablet, click the “My Computer” icon and select “System Properties”. Next, run Device Manager and search for a new nameless device in the list. Click on it and proceed to install the drivers in manual mode.

Contact your tablet manufacturer’s technical support through the contact details specified in the user’s manual. You can also write to the support of the operating system on its official website if, in your opinion, the problem is related to it.
