Hi everybody.

I just bought myself a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 yesterday. After installing the card and the required drivers everything works like a charm. However, every time I start up my PC I get a message saying that a new device has been found on my system. On checking Device Manager I found an "Unknown device" entry under "Other devices".

I'm attaching a screenshot of Device Manager.

Are there any drivers I'm missing? It only happened after removing my old card (after uninstalling all its drivers) and installing the Radeon.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


A:Unknown Device In Device Manager After Installing Radeon HD 4890

I have a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 (I also have a Gigabyte 4890 and XFX 4890 in two other PCs). I think you need to install the latest ATI Catalyst Suite. You may have installed the driver only package. Anyway, I think it has to do with the HDMI capabilities of the card. High def sound is built into the card (the HD part of the card name) and the HD sound driver is part of the Catalyst Suite. When you use an HDMI cable to an appropriate display, HD sound is also transmitted through the same cable from the Radeon graphics card.

Of course, be sure to install .NET Framework 2.0 as it is required before you can install the full Catalyst Suite. The HD sound driver won't install without it. At least I had trouble before I installed .NET 3.5. I went to Windows Update and installed .NET Framework 3.5. 2.0 is included in that update and 2.0 wasn't available separately.

I have a very similar situation.

I have a windows 98se machine runnong on an Intel Celeron 600MHz with 128MB of ram.

The OS was just installed.
I am trying to instal an HP USB burner - I used this device before with no problems.

The drivers are located on a diskette. The manuf instructions advise to connect the power and usb cables and boot the pc with the diskette in the drive when windows finds the new hardware select the floppy drive.

When the pc is booted is finds new hardware lists it as "unknown device" and does not promt me for any input. If I go to device manager the device has a red x. I've tried to remove the device and reboot - same thing. I've tried to update the driver and it says the best driver is already installed c:\windows\inf\usb.inf

The ref url was resolved by changing the order of connecting the cables.....I have tried ever combo I can.
Can someone please tell me how to point to the correct drivers ?

I'm experiencing slim keyboard not being recognized in the Windows 8.1
The keyboard was working fine until just one day it just stopped working.
I tried factory reset literally 8 times along with most recent BIOS update and dell's recommended update software. + power setting --> disabling power saving on USB
It still come up as unrecognized each time even with fresh reinstall.
I was wondering if this is a hardware issue or just software bug from factory reset.
I don't think there is a available driver for this kind of problem is there?

I upgraded to Windows 10 a while back. Every time I open the computer I get a pop-up notification telling me the USB device is unrecognized. I have no USB devices in any of my 3 USB ports.
I sent my computer in twice. No help. They just uninstalled everything and reinstalled everything and told me it should be fixed. It is not. I then went about updating every driver in my Device Manager. I uninstalled the Unknown USB Device and then updated
other drivers. Certain drivers (such as PCI Express Root Port #3 - 9C14) when updating would also reinstall the Unknown USB Device, which I would then uninstall and keep working down the list. At the end of updating EVERYTHING I scanned for hardware changes
and "found" the Unknown USB Device. 
From what I can tell, and I know very little about this stuff, my computer can't name one of my USB ports. Since it can't figure out what it's called it can't download the proper driver for it. Since it can't download the proper driver it can't work properly.
The practical result from this is that one of my three USB ports does nothing when I put in any USB item (connect my android phone, thumb drive, presentation clicker, etc).
I've looked on tons of forums. My current thought is that if I can tell my computer what the deice is or download the right driver and tell my computer to use that driver for this device it should solve my issue. But I don't know how to know what the name
of the USB port should be (I imagine it woul... Read more

Still running the RC, and before I upgrade to the official version I want to figure this out.

So yesterday W7 started giving me this message again an Unknown device not working properly (under devices and printers).

Thing is the Drivers say that they are from kasperky (whose beta I'm using for my AV), but I fail to see how that is a device...

I only have 2 things connected; the wireless reciever for my keyboard/mouse which works perfectly fine, and my printer which is fine. So im wondering what this device even is... does anyone know how I could find out?

And it says USB for type (well it actually says universal serial bus controller)

A:Unknown device not working properly?

Take a look in your device manager. On the unknown device, you should be able to look at the details tab. What is reported in the hardware id section?

I have a Logitech Wireless Mouse M325. USB dongle. I plugged it in and got a "device malfunctioned" error. I went to the Logitech website and downladed their 64-bit "SetPoint" software and ran it.  At first the mouse worked. But after about 10 minutes, Windows gave a message that the "device malfunctioned" and unmounted it.  When I look in the Device Manager, it shows it as Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed) and if I look at the driver details it shows it as being attached to a Microsoft driver.  Now that I've run the Logitech install software, is there a way of manually assigning the correct driver?  Thanks.

A:Unknown Device (Code 43)

Did a Logitech folder install on the hard drive? It likely contains the mouse driver but frankly it should work fine as a standard mouse using the generic Microsoft driver. The Logitech software just enables advanced features like side to side scrolling. Do you have any issues with any other usb devices? If not I am suspecting there is a problem with the mouse itself.

So I've been looking through sites after sites, updating, downloading different software and drivers through the HP site AND the Windows 7 site, Uninstalling/Re-installing, Disabling/Enabling, and even restoring my computer multiple times...but to no avail, this unknown device problem will force me blow my brains out.

I already know that this Unknown Device (Code 43) is my webcam and it seems like there's some sort of malfunctioning going on. It's under the Universal Bus Serial controller and everything else is fine except one (the webcam). I've tried tinkering with it but I'm too scared to start opening up the laptop with the screwdriver.

Of course I've read most of the posts about this problem...but things aren't working out. The only thing that helped temporarily was shutting off the laptop, unplugging it, taking out the battery, then reboot. Everything seemed fine but when I tried to go on TinyChat, the problem appeared again. And I'm back to square one. The frustration that I'm experiencing right now is overbearing. I really need help!

I have a Dell Studio 1737 Laptop that ran fine and had no errors. The integrated web cam also worked
fine. After upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit from Windows Vista 64 bit I have a error in the device manager.

The error listing shows unknown device, and the says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". I believe the error is due to the wrong driver. I think the unknown device
is the web cam, since there is no device manager listing. To verify it, I unplugged the web cam ribbon cable from the motherboard, and the bad entry...and error disappeared from the device manger, indicating all was fine now. On plugging the cable back in, the error returned.

I don't believe there is a hardware problem with the web cam, as it worked fine, prior to the upgrade.
I can find no "creative labs integrated webcam" 64 bit driver for windows 7 on dells website, or anywhere
for that matter. I tried using the vista 64 bit driver with compatibility settings, and it still didn't work.
I tried deleting, rescanning, rebooting, tried other incorrect drivers, on the device dozens of times with no luck. I've had a lot of experience dealing with device manager problems, but now I'm stuck.

Anyone have a Driver for Win 7 64 bit, or know any other ideas to try? Dells Driver listing for Win 7 64 bit
gives no listing for web cam.

Hi all.  please see attached dxdiag for my system specs.  note that this is a big desktop PC
this morning i noticed a device in the device manger which isn't working properly. Normally  if it's not a major issue, i'd consider that sort of thing a silly nitpick.
However, i'm currently experiencing a major problem (which shall have its own thread, later), and i need to start eliminating possible suspects
i tried to research this little issue, and i found some steps that seem really good for major discrete components. unfortunately usb host controller is a generic entity, i'm not honestly sure if it even corresponds to any particular usb headers or external ports.
I've already tried the basic steps of disabling/enabling it, un/reinstalling the device, restarting the computer, leaving it powered off for five minutes, etc
anyways, details:
the device is listed under the Universal Serial Bus controllers section of the manager, as "Unknown Device"
When i open up the properties menu, i see the following info:
Device type: USB controllers
Manufacturer: (Standard USB  Host Controller)
Location: Port_#0001.Hub_#0003
Device Status: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)

I built the PC in June and have had no problems with it. A few days ago the onboard network adapter stopped working, kept telling me that the cable was not connected, when it obviously was. I have cable internet running through a Linksys Wireless router. This desktop and another (running Win XP) are connected to it with ethernet cables. I have a laptop and two iPhones that connect wirelessly. The wireless connections never drop and the WinXP desktop is fine. I swapped cables around and verified that the cable going into the Win7 desktop was fine. I have rebooted my router and cable modem, that didn't help. When a cable is plugged into the port on the motherboard, the green light comes on briefly, the yellow activity light blips twice and then both go off. That process then repeats.

I fiddled with the onboard adapter to no avail, so I went out and bought a PCI network card, not wanting to RMA the motherboard right now. I grabbed a Dynex 10/100/1000 adapter from Best Buy, it has Win7 drivers.

I was just working happily when my Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse just suddenly stopped working.
The Bluetooth settings page says "Bluetooth is turned off" and there are no options on the settings page or the system tray to turn Bluetooth on.
The Device Manager now has "Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed" where it did not before.
Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.
I've tried:
uninstalling the device and rebooting
installing the latest updated chipset drivers from the dell website
windows updates

I have a Toshiba laptop, model L505-ES5018. I had Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on here, but decided to reformat my hard drive using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. After the reformat was finished, I ran Windows Update and it found several items to download and install for me. I noticed that it also found optional items to download and install for me, so after all the important updates installed, I ran the optional updates. After all of this installed, I checked Device Manager to see if there were any errors and I found nothing. I assumed everything was fine. I decided to check Devices and Printers and under my laptop icon, there was a yellow icon with an exclamation point on it. I decided to run the troubleshooting option when I right-clicked the icon....it gave me a solution to download a Toshiba password utility program, so I did that and nothing happened, even after restart. Same icon appeared. When I clicked on the icon a second time, I noticed that the model of my computer at the bottom of this window, changed from L505 to TIAS. I have no idea what this is. I decided to do another reformat on my hard drive. This time, I ignored the optional updates. I checked Devices and Printers again, the same icon appeared but the model of my computer said L505, like it should. There is something in the optional updates that is changing this. Could it be the Intel chipset driver that the optional update is pushing? I'm not sure. I went back to Device Manager, th... Read more

This package isprovided for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. File name: sp65474.exe I don't know if not having that driver installed is related to the black screen issue.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate. Since very recently an unknown device keeps popping up in the device manager every time I start Win. It's reported location is within the front USB root hub but I haven't changed there anything lately. The device status reports "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)". I can uninstall/disable it but it will get picked up again the next time I reboot. All other usb devices (mouse, keyboard, web camera, APC UPS, external drive, printer) work fine. How do I get rid of this nuisance so that it doesn't reappear?

How do i figure out what driver or even component windows wants software for when in the device manager under other devices it lists an unknown device and windows update cannot find anything.

Oh and is it appropriate for me to use this topic to ask another question regarding explorer.exe as while i am inside a folder i delete (by choosing delete from the context menu in the tree view) while inside that folder on this particular laptop PC explorer. always crashes, collect information, sends it and restarts explorer. I have not experienced this problem on any other pc running any version of windows 7, oh and the same happened with build 7264 x32 and the current install of build 7600 x64.

My 7270 latitude touch screen stopped working shortly after first use (after win update worked again but for a short time).
All drivers are up to date.
In device manager a USB device shows as unknown (yellow warning triangle), otherwise there are no indications to the source of the problem.  There is no other touch screen device showing in device manager. 
How do I perminently solve this?

I recently put together a new computer, and in the process of of installing the USB 3.0 connector from the front of my GX500 case, I either bent numerous pins on the motherboard USB 3.0 header or the motherboard shipped that way and I inadvertently made matters worse. Anyway, that header on the motherboard is without a doubt unusable.
Since I don't really need the USB 3.0 functionality, I bought a USB 3.0 -> 2.0 adapter cable, connected one end to the connector on the front of the case and the other end into the USB 2.0/1.1 header on the motherboard. Unfortunately, when Windows 7 boots and I plug a device into the front ports of the case, Windows detects the front USB ports as "Unknown Device" within Device Manager yet says the driver is successfully installed. I've already downloaded the most current Intel chipset drivers for my motherboard, deleted and reinstalled all USB drivers, and all rear USB connections are working perfectly fine - it's just the two front ports that are connected from the case to the USB 2.0/1.1 ports via the adapter cable.  I've tried both USB 2.0/1.1 headers on the motherboard, and I've tried plugging in several devices to the front USB ports, and this problem still persists.
I've ensured the connection inside the case is solid, yet I cannot get Windows to recognize the front USB ports.  However, I have confirmed that power is being sent to the front ports because it charges my phone when I connect it to the front USB ports via m... Read more
