Windows 10: My laptop (or Windows 10) stopped recognizing all USB-devices

    My laptop (or Windows 10) stopped recognizing all USB-devices

    I have once again run into a problem with W10, and it's getting very frustrating with all these errors and malfunctions that W10 has. The problem is that when I plug a USB-device in my computer, no sound is being played to signal that the USB-device has been recognized, and that really seems to be the case. I can't even use my mouse.

    I believe the problem started after the latest update for Windows 10 which took place about one day ago. Otherwise I have no idea what could cause this kind of error.

    I have been also wondering if it is possible to downgrade my laptop back to Windows 8. Windows 10 is clearly a very unstable OS released in a hurry and I have encountered the most bizarre problems with it, including Sony Vegas Pro 13 not launching any more.

    Thank you for helping in advance.

    If you can borrow a legacy PS/2 mouse and keyboard (with the round connectors), try connecting them to your computer before you switch it on. Then you should be able to use the mouse and keyboard (assuming your motherboard has PS/2 sockets, as most new models don't). Then try downloading latest chipset drivers from motherboard's manufacturer's site or directly from Intel. Install them and the USB should come to life. As for Sony Vegas Pro 13, try setting the shortcut at Windows 8 or 7 compatibility mode. Right-click, select Properties, then Compatibility. Check the box and set it to Windows 8 or Windows 7. Also check the Run as Administrator box. If still doesn't work you may have to uninstall it and reinstall it.
