So, I have a PC at my business that keeps popping up "USB Device Not Recognized" errors. I've tried everything I could think of, plus a bunch o Google-fu results. Uninstalled / reinstalled drivers, remove power and reboot, etc. etc.

At this point I am thinking that the motherboard has "shit-the-bed" and is going to need to be replaced. It's a cheap-ass computer so I'll be replacing the whole unit with a Dell.

Any other suggestions before I do this?

EDIT: If I leave the "Device Manager" window open, I can watch an "Unknown Device" appear and disappear from the list every time the system throws an error. I have already tried installing drivers for this device with no avail.

Any way of running a live version of linux off the dvd-rom to see if its the OS?

I suppose I could... The thing is, all USB devices WORK when plugged in... But I keep getting the OS throwing errors.

Would Linux throw errors like that with no device plugged in or with working devices?

I've been having this issue as well. I can't pinpoint what device it thinks is failing. Everything is working properly!

Here's what I'm experiencing. I even tried disabling the "faulty" device, and it just added a new one after a reboot!

If it's over threes years old, replace it with something much newer and if it's your business try saving, but then again anything over three years old ant worth saving.
