    USB Headsets not recognised only on one PC

    Hello all,

    I come to you in a moment of despair, where researching hasn't led me to any conclusion or solution to my issue.

    I've got a freshly built PC with the following:

    Ryzen 1700
    16 GB RAM
    GTX 1070
    B350 PC MATE MSI MS-7A34. BIOS-ul updatat la zi.
    Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.15063 Build 15063

    I've got a pair of USB Headsets, model Genesis HX66. Whenever I plug them in, I'm getting "The last USB Device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognise it." . If I go further and check in Device Manager I can see "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). A USB port reset request failed".

    - Windows is up to date.
    - Motherboard drivers are up to date as per Live Update MSI.
    - I've got the headsets drivers but the installer does not let me install since it doesn't detect the headsets as being plugged in.
    - Tried uninstalling the item with the exclamation mark and then scanning for hardware changes. Tried scanning online for updates. Same result.
    - Tried disabling USB Selective Suspend Setting.
    - The headsets are functioning perfectly on other devices.
    - Regardless of the USB port I use, same error.
    - I can use other devices on the same USB ports, including charging my phone.
    - Tried to install the wpdmtp.inf . Still didn't work.
    - Tried disabling the force driver signature feature.

    One suspect thing is I can't install the Asmedia USB drivers that come on the MSI DVD. Receiving the Asmedia USB Host controller was not found.

    I am completely out of ideas, please assist me.

    Thank you.

    What does it look like in your device manager.....any yellow triangles showing?

    Yes. Yellow triangle over "Unknown USB Device (Port Reset Failed)".

    That's generally related to your chipset driver which usually contains the USB driver.

    Get your chipset driver installed.

    That's what I thought as well at first.

    Tried both the 1gb installer over there and the live update tool.

    Same result.
