    USB Device not recognized notice MAKE me MAD


    Just upgraded from Windows 7 to windows 10 --all working well except continually get message " USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED ,the last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it "

    I have gone into Device manager and see the yellow icon next to "unknown usb device (device descriptor request failed ) I have tried deleting it, disabling it , updating the drivers and still get this stupid error message. No idea which USB caused the problem . No usb presently connected

    I will not update other 2 computers to 10 if I cannot get this resolved. Was not a problem with Windows 7

    Did you try a different USB port?

    I've seen a similar issue and turned out to be the Notebook/Laptop needed drivers for an SD/SDHC Card Reader present in one edge of the case. Seems it used the USB circuitry.

    I have no idea which USB device caused the issue or which port it was in . As this message has kept goint 3 weeks with no USB in not sure what to do to remove constant error message

    It was a Dell Inspiron 15 Notebook and support.dell.com listed support for Win10 on that model. Might be worth trying the Win8.1 drivers, 32-bit or 64-bit depending upon the version of Windows that is installed.
