    8gb ram (I think it's ddr5)
    AMD A-6 7470k
    Zotac nvidia 750Ti 2gb
    Win 10

    So I have been offline for around 2-3 months, I moved into a hostel with no wifi. I then use my phone to download files for games and such. It was working fine until one day when I woke up, code 43 unknown usb device, device descriptor failed. I knew it was gonna be hard to FiX

    So I just tried as many methods as I could over the month which I will put at the end. None of them worked. So I tried to contact microsoft yesterday, he said install a driver, didn't work. So I went back to chat to someone else, network troubleshooting links??? where microsoft think when they hired him. I still don't have internet but luckily a first utilities engineer is coming out on Friday. WOOOOOOOOOOOOO hooray finnaly, broadband. I spoke to someone else from Microsoft today, half an hour later, sorry but you will need a plan so that we can take control of your machine and fix the issue as it is more complex than usual.I was using a faulty cable the day before it broke and after I transfered my files, I pulled it out. I'm stuck trying to FiX this.

    Methods I tried:
    Pulling the power cord, turning it on and plugging the device in,

    Swapping the usb ports,

    Swapping the cable,

    Uninstaling the device and scanning for hardware changes or plugging it back in the port,

    Troubleshooting (couldn't identify the issue)

    Restarting the pc,

    Turning ofF fast boot

    Driver easy (it wouldn't update the composite device driver thing but it's out of date)

    Think that's everything

    Nope, I updated windows when I used hotspot one night, updated my phone and probably everything I could do,

    Now I'm depressed and stuck in a pathetically small physiological hole and it's phscycoticaly damaging to my mental health so if anybody can help fix this problem, please help?
