    Troubleshooting a USB issue

    I receive an on screen error message about a USB problem something on the line of the last USB connected has an issue.
    When I view Device Manager I can see an issue.
    "Unknown USB device (Device Descripter Reuest Failed)" listed
    What I have been doing is right clicking and uninstalling.
    My first guess was that I had a motherboard USB port issue.

    After resuming from sleep mode the error message again returns. So today I wondered if I am just resuming from sleep mode why would my system try to reload this USB. If that's what it's doing ?

    So now I am questioning maybe it really is an issue with something plugged into a USB port on my desktop.
    I have three USB ports in use:
    1. Wireless mouse/keyboard transceiver
    2. UPS
    3. Logitech Camera
    All three appear to be working fine.

    Any thought on how to troubleshoot this ?

    There should be no personal files in the log collector.
    It should be all computer files.
    The Ten Forums BSOD forum has many threads with the log files for viewing.

    Z I'm having a brain cramp here.
    I found the log collection zip file and I can see all the associated txt files for it.
    When I "go advanced" I am unable to open the .zip file to attach it.
    It will let me attach any of the .txt files but not the .zip

    There are two log collectors: DM and BETA
    The BETA log collector will eventually replace the DM log collector.
    The BETA log collector will collect more useful files and folders.
    Run both the DM and BETA log collectors and post zips into the thread.
    Post the DM log collector first and then try again the BETA log collector.

    z can I attach the 2 .dmp files like the .zip files on this thread ?

    Ran Crucial system scanner and it shows my motherboard is rev 1.0. I took the cover of my desktop and the motherboard shows imprinted with rev 1.1.
    I was curious how you thought my motherboard was rev 1.1 as I did not see that in the zip files I posted.

    Currently looking for a Gigabyte utility to update my bios, didn't see one on the Gigabyte web site, but my owners manual states there are 2. Q-Flash and @Bios. I'll keep looking around.

    Checked Device Manager, and only this entry about the USB is flagged as having any problem.

    Found the Q-Flash utility it is built into my motherboard. I will read up on that.

    Download and install Speecy: (free edition)
    Post links into the thread.
    The information from Speecy will be used to clarify the motherboard version.
    Once the motherboard version is confirmed > view BIOS history > upgrade to the newest non-beta BIOS

    The log files for dump files is typically large. Sometimes 750 MB to more than 2 GB.
    The uploads and downloads can take a long time.
    So zip and upload files that are < 1.5 GB in separate share links.

    For the USB see the prior two links for troubleshooting (pcworld and geeks)
