Hey guys, my computer won't pick up my phone at hboot anymore even though i deleted 0 files whatsoever and changed nothing, I need the computer to pick up my phone at hboot so that i can flash the boot.img files otherwise roms dont work for me, when i press fastboot, it doesnt say fastboot usb, but when i press down with the volume key it says fastboot usb but no commands work in the command prompt , it just gets stuck at waiting for device. I know it's not the cable, I tried it with my friends, any solutions?

I'm having the "< waiting for device >" hanging problem when trying to run the fastboot command from the Android SDK. I've searched around and seen many with this problem, but no single fix. I've reinstalled the SDK and drivers, made sure HTC Sync and other syncing processes are not running, and made sure USB debugging is on. "adb devices" and "adb shell" work fine. I've also tried rebooting the phone while "waiting." All to no avail.

What could be causing this? What can I do to successfully run fastboot?

This is on an HTC Sensation running SuperSensation v.1.0.5 (Android 2.3.5), connected to a Windows 7 PC.

Thanks for helping with a noobie question.

So "adb devices" when booted, and "fastboot devices" when in bootloader returns nothing, or "waiting for device"?
You have both adb and fastboot drivers in the same location you are issuing these commands from?

Oh......
I didn't realize that "fastboot" was to be run while in the bootloader. I think I tried that without success earlier, but am not sure - in any case, it worked this time.

Many thanks...!
