    USB device not recognized

    I have a Lenovo Android phone which after it self-upgraded it's software (customized Android UI) does not get recognized when it's plugged into my Lenovo G50 notebook. When plugged in, Windows gives "USB device not recognized" and the phone cannot be accessed. I've tried different USB ports, cables, uninstall/reinstall the driver, nothing works. I also tried the Win10 hardware troubleshooter feature multiple times to no avail. I'm at a loss how I might resolve this problem - and Lenovo Support forum is of no help. Any help is greatly appreciated. Below is the details in the Windows event log...

    Leave your device unplugged, access device manager, select "show hidden devices" and see if you can find the old inactive device (greyed-out). Once found, delete it, reboot, plug your updated device back in and see if it is now properly recognized:

    Nope, that does not work. I've done that numerous times. No change. Same problem. The device manager shows the error as...
    "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
    A request for the USB device descriptor failed."

    Any other ideas?
