If this fix doesn’t work for you, simply continue to the next one.
Fix 4: Make sure you’re using the latest device drivers
Usually Windows will take care of the drivers once we plugged in the devices, but there’re always exceptions. If the system fails to provide the latest correct drivers for our devices, we then need to do it ourselves.
The Logitech G HUB not working issue could indicate that you’re using a faulty or outdated device driver. The worst scenario, this could mean your computer is missing some critical drivers. When troubleshooting device issues, checking & updating your device drivers could save you a lot of trouble.
You can do this manually, if you like, by visiting each manufacturer’s download page, finding the right drivers, etc. But that takes time and computer skills. If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, we recommend using Driver Easy. It’s a tool that detects, downloads and installs any driver updates your computer needs.
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy, then click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
(This requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All. If you don’t want to pay for the Pro version, you can still download and install all the drivers you need with the free version; you just have to download them one at a time, and manually install them, the normal Windows way.)
Once you’ve installed/updated the device drivers, restart your computer and check if Logitech G HUB is working now.
If this method doesn’t help you, simply take a look at the next one.
Fix 5: Install all Windows updates
Windows updates include some patches that could fix the compatibility issues. And some might contain drivers that are missing from your PC. You should check for system updates as it might be a potential fix.
And here’re the instructions for that:
- On your keyboard, press Win+I (the Windows logo key and the i key) at the same time to open the Windows Settings app. Click Update & Security.
- Click Check for updates. It might take a while for Windows to download and install available updates.
