    'USB device not recognized' flashes every 10 seconds.


    hello, i have got the acer laptop with windows 10 per-installed. the laptops was working fine and i had no problem with it. then i got a major update. i used a usb mouse and when i disconnect the mouse the message started to flash saying 'USb device not recognized' making sounds with 10 sec interval. i tried reset the whole pc but it didn't work. then i contacted windows assist and they remote connected my pc and shared my screen. she cleaned a lot of stuff using CMD. she said that there are some corrupt files in windows during update, and restarted the pc several times. i was happy my problem was sloved.

    THEN... while i was looking to duel boot my pc. i accidentally erased the windows Os. i later installed the windows 10 1804 build and got some updates and the 'usb device not recognized' issue raised again. i did the same , contacted the assist and this time i saw some familiar friendly Indian names as my assist person and i know i share fair knowledge about drivers and device manager stuff. he opened device manager and uninstalled usb drivers and said to me that the problem was solved. i connected the usb mouse and the message started to show up. he told me to contact manufacture for help. im confused.

    does any one have any solution for this? or is there a way i can contact the same person who solved my problem at first.?

    :)

  2. Some USB Devices not recognized in Windows 10

    Hi have Windows 10 Pro insider preview 10532 64bit Pro Intel i7 desktop PC.

    I have multiple USB devices connected, USB 3 & 2. The USB HDD is working however my Samsung phone and kindle are no longer being recognized. The steps followed so far:

    • Uninstalled all USB devices in device manager including controllers
    • Flashed BIOS to latest version
    • Updated USB drivers for the devices from manufacturers sites
    • Tried new USB cables

    Please note: both devices are recognized by my Windows 10 Lenovo laptop.

    I really don't want to fresh install, please suggest any diagnostics I can try.

    Thanks

    OS doesn't recognize USB flash drives (KB4056892)


    Just completed Win10 update KB4056892 on my Sony laptop, now running v.1709, build 16299.125. Almost everything is fine except the system no longer recognizes USB flash drives. When a flash drive (USB2 or 3) is inserted in a port the Device Manager recognizes it as "Other Devices", lists what it is (for example "TOSHIBA TransMemory USB Device") but says under Properties: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There are no compatible drivers for this device." When I try to update the driver, the Update Drivers feature says "Windows could not find drivers for your device." Device Manager shows no problems under Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

    I know the drivers for flash drives are somewhere in the system because I have used these ports and flash drives many times prior to KB4056892, but I don't know where they are or how to tell the OS where they are. Suggestions would be appreciated.
