Method 2: Disconnect all USB (Universal Serial Bus) devices connected to the computer (unless your mouse and keyboard). Connect the printer and check to see if the problem persists.

Method 3: Connect the printer to a different USB port and check.

Method 4: Reinstall the USB (Universal Serial Bus) controllers.

 First of all, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:

(a) click on 'Start', type device manager in the search bar and press "Enter." If necessary, click on continue.

(b) in Device Manager, double-click to expand the "USB Bus controllers", right-click on the "host controller", click "Uninstall" and click "OK".

(c) repeat step 2 to uninstall all items under 'USB Bus controllers'.

 

Then, restart your computer and windows will automatically reinstall all USB controllers.

 

HP printer drivers- ensure that you download the driver appropriate for your device model package.

 

Thanks and greetings

    I get a windows notification that says-

    "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it."

    I have Vista 32 bit OS on my laptop.

    I also tried to move the receiver to the other 2 ports USB w / still the same results.

    Are there other downloads or solutions that will help w / this problem?

    You can also try searching for devices strangers (with yellow symbols) in the Manager under the mouse devices and other pointing devices and other devices (if any). Right click and uninstall unknown devices. Then restart.

    Hello Ann,.

    If it is a laptop computer, shut down Windows and remove the battery and the power supply of the PC.

    Wait a few minutes, and then reconnect the battery and start Windows.

    Plugin your device to see if it works, without the hub.

  • Error: One of the USB devices attached to this system has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it.

    tried already everything written here. When I plug my USB device (3 of them) my Windows a sad of the USB devices attached to this system has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it. I tried plugging it into another winXP machine, it won't work. Can you help me?

    Original title: usb malfunction

    His salvation,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum.

    1. What are the troubleshooting steps you have tried so far?
    2. If it works much earlier? If so, did you do changes on the computer before this problem?
    3. What type of USB device you are using?

    As you mentioned that the USB device does not work when plugged into a WinXP machine, it may be a problem with the device itself. In addition, the question may also arise if the currently loaded USB driver has become unstable or damaged or if your PC requires an update for problems that could conflict with a device USB and Windows.

    Therefore, I suggest you try the following methods (skip the ones that you already tried) and check if the problem persists.

    Method 1:

    Please try the fixit (s) provided below which will help you solve common problems associated with devices and USB ports.

    If method 1 does not work, try Method 2.

    Method 2:

    Remove and reinstall all USB controllers.

    1. Open Manager devices by clicking the Start button, click Control Panel, click system and security, and then, under System, clicking Device Manager. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. In the list of the categories of equipment, locate and expand Bus USB controllers.
    3. Right-click every device under the Bus USB controllers node and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
    4. Restart the computer and let the USB controllers get reinstalled.
    5. Plug in the removable USB device and test to make sure that the problem is solved.

    If the problem persists, go to method 3.

    Method 3:

    This method will install the latest drivers from device to your USB device.

    1. Click the Start button, type Windows Update in the search box, and then click Windows Update in the results pane.
    2. Click find updates. When the scan finished, click optional review updates.
    3. Click the check box next to the update, and then click install updates.
    4. If you are prompted, read the license agreement, then click I agree.
    5. Follow the instructions on the screen to download and install updates.
    6. If you are prompted, restart your computer.

    More information: Update a hardware driver that is not working properly

    If the device fails after updating the driver, you can try to roll back the driver with its previous version.

    I have 16 GB installed in the case (4x4Go), but only 8 GB has, even in the BIOS.
    All the 4 sticks of RAM are the same brand and compatible with my motherboard.
    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit, which limit memory is 16 GB, so this isn't the issue.
    I got a few BSOD - 0 x 00000109 - errors that I work.
    I ran memtest86 for a few hours and he scored 4 errors during test cycles 7.
    These memtest errors concern the bars invisible RAM or the work those?
    Any ideas as to what should I do next?

    Thanks Joel,

    I started to individually test RAM when I noticed a quirk in the way they were organized in their locations.
    I downloaded the manual for my P9X79 and he confirmed that they were arranged in mirror mode.
    I switched two of the sticks to adjacent slots and, Lo and behold, the full 16 GB presented at startup.
    So that's one mystery solved at least.
    I'll raise the memtest to see if it includes several errors and if so will continue to individually control the RAM sticks.
    Thanks again.

  • It is important to install all the updates popping up on my computer?

    Installation of updates

    I was wondering if it is important to install all the updates popping up on my computer.  Looks like I get notifications every day!  Is it good or bad to make them... and so good, that I have to do all of them?  What those specifically do I do?  HELP CoffeeAnnie

    You need install all the critical updates in order to preserve the safety of various exploits of hackers and malware from your Vista.  Also called security updates, these loopholes hackers have found to enter your system somehow.  Important updates correct various problems of performance.  All updates are designed to prevent potential problems and enhance your Windows experience.

    Normally, the new updates are available on Windows Update the second Tuesday (aka "Patch Tuesday") of each month.  Occaisionally updates are also available on the fourth Tuesday as well, but the vast majority is released on Patch Tuesday.  The only time when Windows updates are offered to other dates is when an update is critical at the moment, which means that Microsoft has detected an imminent danger of criticism for its users.

    Office updates follow the same pattern.

    There are other Microsoft products including the team out of updates on a different schedule, but who do not concern most users.

    I recommend to use the automatic updates and install programs.  Keep your Windows up-to-date protects your investment in your computer.
