  1. USB device not recognized error although nothing plugged in / all devices work if plugged in


    Hello dear community :


    I have a problem with my HP laptop 15-dw1xxx with a Intel core i5-10210U 1.60 GHz, MS Windows 10 home, 64bit.

    Suddenly, I got the notification "USB device not recognized" although no USB device has been changed in that moment. Besides, there is the notification sound as if I would plug in and out a USB device. The sound and the notification are appearing non-stop in a 2-3 second period. No USB device has been changed while this occurred and all are working.

    Removing all USB devices did not change the issue.


    Ways how I tried to fix this but did not change the issue:


    -Remove all USB devices, plug them in and out

    -Reboot cold reboot, without the charger, with the charger, safe boot

    -Try to update drivers of IntelR USB 3.1 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.10 Microsoft, as well as for the USB Root Hub USB 3.0 but they seem to all be up to date.

    -Disable the USB controller or root hub - this clears the issue but also logically disables the USBs which is not an acceptable solution since the USB ports work, despite there is this false notification

    -Uninstall the drivers of the controller and root hub, then restart

    -Did the same with the tool "USB deview"

    -Repeat all of this many times with countless restarts



    -Restore windows to a point in the past

    -Reinstall windows


    None of these could solve the issue, which leaves me behind frustrated :/ I finally turned off the notification sound as well as the pop-up. This is a kind of "symptomatic" solution, since at least the USB devices work normally. The problem, however, of course persists and I can see a USB symbol appearing and disappearing in the right end of the taskbar.


    I would be happy about any ideas how to fix this problem. In case I forgot any information do not hesitate to ask me. Thank you in advance!

    :)

    usb device not recognized (malfunction) - Printer

    Hope somebody can help a non-techy here.
    I have a canon IX4000 printer, and had been using it without problem. The next day (having touched nothing), I got a USB device not recognized warning, and that it has a malfunction (this is under Windows XP).

    I've tried the following:
    - deinstalling all USB drivers under device manager
    - system restore to several days prior, when I knew the printer was working
    - trying a different USB lead (tested the lead on another device, so know it works)
    - plugged lead into every other available USB port on the computer (front and back).
    - tried plugging it into another computer (comes up with the same malfunction warning)
    - deinstalled the printer drivers, downloaded and reinstalled them.

    Nothing I've tried works. I know the printer functions as I can start it up under service mode and print off test pages without problems, but my computer just won't have it. Could it be a hardware failure, and if not is there anything else I can try that isn't listed above?

    Really grateful to anyone who can reply. *Smile USB device not recognized error although nothing plugged in / all devices work if plugged in :)
