    I'm having issues getting my USB ports to work. They're definitely getting power but not registering any USB device being plugged in. I've checked in the Device Manager and I see two UNKNOWN DEVICE messages with ERROR CODE 43..."Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".


    I've tried full shutdown and battery removal...failed.

    Uninstalled each USB root hub from the device manager then restarted computer for full auto re-install...failed.

    Downloaded Hardware Identification Tool and used it to download correct drivers (as confirmed by the manufacturers website) and failed as well.

    Can anybody help me with this issue by chance? Would be greatly appreciated.

    After attempting a few more possibilities for my issue, I have already found my problem and how to repair it...The entire USB port is shot. It's dead, nonusable. I'm either going to have to get a whole new motherboard or a USB PCI card.
