    Hello. This is frustrating me a lot.

    Yesterday I finished working on a song with my M-Audio Keystation 61ES and switched it and my computer off. The next day, I go to plug it in and turn it on, and Windows 7 greets me with "USB Device Not Recognized, USB device has malfunctioned"

    I have downloaded the latest drivers from the M Audio website, I have reset the computer (and turned it off at the wall), uninstalled the driver with device manager and manually selected the new M Audio drivers, added a registry key (http://www.ntcompatible.com/Desperately_need_help_---_USB_Devices_Not_Recognized_t32356.html), tried a different USB port, tried a different USB cable.

    What happened? Why is the device suddenly not working today?

    Running out of ideas, all help is appreciated.

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
    Gigabyte G880GM UD2H
    AMD Phenom II x4 955
    AMD Radeon 6870
    4GB RAM

    Test the device on another PC. Then you will know if you have a PC or USB device issue.
