    Timeout occurred while waiting for the EHCI host controller


    I'm new to this website and am hopeful that I can find a way to avoid needing to take my PC into a shop for repairs.

    Several weeks ago now the USB ports in the back of my Windows 10 Pro Version 1903 PC started failing. I would get error messages that said "the last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it." Plugged into the four USB ports in the back of my PC are a printer, scanner, and two external hard drives, and these have all been plugged in now for years with no issues. The remaining USB ports, on the front and top of my PC continue to work. The failures vary on when they happen. Sometimes my computer can be on for hours and it will happen, other times the computer will be on shortly and it will happen.

    When I reboot my computer, everything works again, and even documents that I sent to the PC when the USB failed earlier, will not print.

    I have tried updating the drivers as well as uninstalling and the problem remains. I seem to think its some type of software issue that when some process on my PC runs it causes the error.

    I'm no expert with the computer, but I was able to view the error logs which read:

    A timeout occurred while waiting for the EHCI host controller Asynchronous Schedule to transition to the enabled state.

    In one of the USB 3 ports on the top of my PC I have plugged in the WiFi plug for my wireless mouse and keyboard, but these don't seem to have been an issue. But I'm not sure.

    Can someone please let me know what I should do? Any help for this novice is so greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. USB EHCI Timeout

    A timeout occurred while waiting for the EHCI host controller Asynchronous Schedule to transition to the enabled state.

    My event viewer is flooded with this error and what it's doing is highly aggravating. It's even worse that after a week I can't find any kind of solution.

    I'm running Windows 10 PRO X64 on an MSI 970A G46 MOBO. It runs smoothly but then this error slams on the brakes. Everything USB shuts off. Nothing is registered. After 5 minutes Windows finally recognizes them again except my Cisco WiFi stick. I have all
    my drivers updated. I've even wiped and reinstalled all the drivers for my usb devices. The mouse, keyboard, xbox360 reciever, Cisco Wifi Adapter, and the wireless keyboard/mouse.

    It's fine so long as I don't touch the computer but once I launch a game it happens immediately or while watching a movie, nothing else, it's just randomly occurs.

    Is there a registry key I can edit to solve this or a hotfix?



    Please help, this is driving me insane!

  3. USB EHCI timeout


    Is there a fix for this? I have no idea what triggers it but my rig went absolutely nuts last night. Random USB devices kept shutting off and turning back on. The wifi adapter had to be plugged in to a new usb port every time it timed out.

    Timeout occurred while waiting for the EHCI host controller

    Driver host process timeout.

    Hi,

    The default timeout interval for the Driver host process is 60 seconds. If the driver couldn't respond as expected within this period, it's possible that the driver is outdated or incompatible with the operating system. We'll be able to provide the appropriate
    steps to resolve the timeout error once we have more information, so please answer these questions:

    • Just to confirm, did this error only happen after you installed Fall Creators Update?
    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Did you encounter this error while your computer was idle, or were you using a specific program?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
