    USB device not recognized


    I have a USB port on my motherboard that never worked. I had the problem with Windows 7 complaining about it, but something I did got Windows 7 to be quiet.

    Now I have Windows 10.

    Action Center is popping a steady stream - and I do mean steady - of "USB device not recognized."

    Device Manager refreshes so often it is hard to right click on things because of the refreshing.

    The item is listed as "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)." It alternates between these 2 error messages.

    Device status:
    Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

    A request for the USB device descriptor failed.

    Device status:
    Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

    To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

    A request for the USB device descriptor failed.


    Here is my USB list:

    Universal Serial Bus controllers
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A3A
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A3C
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A34
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A35
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A36
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A37
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A38
    Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3A39
    Logitech USB Camera (Orbit/Sphere AF)
    Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Detection Driver (USB)
    Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed) [Port_#0002.Hub_#0003]
    [hidden] Unknown USB Device (Port Reset Failed) [Port_#0006.Hub_#0004]
    [hidden] Unknown USB Device (Port Reset Failed) [Port_#0002.Hub_#0003]

    Things I have tried:
    I am using regular boot. I am not using quick boot.
    I have disabled the driver.
    I have uninstalled the driver.
    I have uninstalled all of the host controllers above and allowed them to reinstall.
    I have manually reinstalled all of the host controllers' drivers above (by using the default driver).
    I have turned off the PC and unplugged it.

    Annoyance reduction:
    In Sound, I have set Device Connect and Device Disconnect to no sound.
    I have tried turning off Action Center notifications for all apps, but don't like doing that because that also prevents other notifications that I do want. Also, when I do that the old gray symbol for a device connection problem starts showing up in the notification area.
    I have tried turning off Action Center notifications for all apps and then turning it right back on. The problem goes away for a few minutes.


    Help. *Sad

  2. USB Device Not Recognized, Unknown USB Device (Device Descripter Request Failed) Error Code 45

    My problem vanished overnight; my theory was a problem with the Dell monitor's built-in USB hub - the screen saver hadn't kicked in for some reason and the monitor was pretty hot to the touch. A good night's rest seems to have mysteriously fixed it.

  3. USB Device Not Recognized, Unknown USB Device (Device Descripter Request Failed) Error Code 45

    Thank you for the reply.

    The problem persists regardless of whether I have my phone connected or any USB device connected. I can unplug all my USB devices and the problem will continue as if I am plugging and unplugging a device over and over.

    I did try connecting my phone with a different cable, just to cover the step. My phone connects fine and without issue, but the sounds and notifications continue.

    I filed a feedback bug as you described in step 2, and as a temporary work around I have disabled all notifications from explorer and disabled the device connect and disconnect sounds.

    I may have to completely reinstall the OS in order to fix it, but I am still hoping to avoid that.

    I have EXACTLY this problem on a Del Precision T1500 - Did anyone get back to you with a solution or did you solve your problem yourself?
