Why I got this USB not recognized error when there is no USB at all? Reward $1
Created by WalterWhite, 844 days ago, 1107 views

This really confuses me, I open my computer today and I got this "USB device not recognized" notice. Funny thing is I don't have any USB device connected to the computer. Does anyone know why?

Hi @WalterWhite
Sounds like your motherboard needs to be re- booted.
It's a simple fix just - UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY .

Wait about a minute and plug it back in.
The microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers .

If this doesent work come back and let us know.

Good Luck.

So I started with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for my devices and reinstalling them. That didn’t work! Next I tried System Restore thinking that maybe I had installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn’t work!

I read online that in order to fix this problem I should go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restarted the computer, reinstalled the USB drivers, but the problem STILL did not go away!

You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an “Unknown Device

So how did I finally fix the problem? Well, apparently it’s a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall drivers, or anything of that sort.
Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY . Yes that’s it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don’t really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.
First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be “rebooted” also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!
So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.

answeh here


Go to Device Manager and uninstall all the USB ports. Restart the computer and let Windows reinstall all the USB ports drivers automatically when the computer boots up.
That should remove the error message and also give you fresh drivers for the ports

This usb error may be due to your usb type mouse or keyboard.
When keyboard/mouse pre-installed chips got malfunction due to any reason, then mother boadr shows this option.
Solution: Tried to replace your mouse/keyboard if you are using................
If you are not using any such device, restore your systen setting to fix all such problems..................
