k So i did what you said
weird thing is when I hold the flashing pwr botton, it connects but as soon as I let go it disconnects
WHILE HOLDING i was able to get this from the property
"No drivers are installed for this device.
If you are having problems with this device, click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter."
After I let go I got:
"Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device."
