Im having a hell of a time with windows drivers.

I cant get a usb hub to install and some other devices.

For example, I had a usb hub installed (a second one was attached to monitor /monitor has usb hub) once i disconnect it and plug it back in, it suddenly, doesnt have driver or cant install driver.


What ive tried ?

At least everything commonly you are supposed to, like unplug, reboot, plug in. Remove device drivers, uninstall. Try different usb hub, check mobo drivers, check make sure new bios ,

Driver sweeper, doesnt find any drivers to get rid of

Drivereasy and Driver Genius on running after removing doesnt find any drivers that i dont have, that i should have that fix this.


Everytime I try to install this USB HUB for example, I get, NO DRIVER INSTALL (In windows autoatmic install)

if i do it manually ---

WINDOWS CANNOT FIND THE SPECIFIED DRIVER


Windows UPDATE --

Windows could not find the driver software for your device.


Tried manually browsing and install from system32

-> Generic USB

Windows found driver software for your device but encountere3d an error while attempting to install it.

-> The system cannot find the file specified




I am so tired of the solution always having to be reinstall /clean install, because theres always some completely different problem that requires a reinstall. This is just chaos dealing with this all the time. god damn. help me.

Hi blackacidevil, your having a right "MARE" as we say here in Blighty :-)

So, common problems I have come across when using multiple USB hubs / devices.

OK, correct me if I'm wrong, but are all your hubs powered? If not, when you create a chain, this could be overloading the USB bus for that/those ports and causing your problems.

So, I would try connecting just one hub and see if works ( again, is it powered or powers off USB port itself? ), then connect devices to this hub ( if correctly identified ) one at a time to see if all devices work correctly ( again!, are these devices powering off the hub?, which is powering off the USB port!!! ).

When ever you attach a device which causes the hub to fail, disconnect ( obviously ) and try in another USB port, but not in hub, if device functions OK, the quite possibly drawing power from hub and overloading.

Some motherboards allow a setting via jumper ( usually ) to change the USB voltage from 5v to 12v, maybe!; you would have to check your motherboard spec to see if this is possible.

Install one hub at a time, and one device at a time, and ensure all is working well before attaching another device or hub.

In relation to hub on monitor, have never had success with these, then again my experience is limited. You may just be overloading its ability to power multiple devices!

Good luck and keep thread updated :-)

PS, some USB chains will always fail, don't ask me why this is just my experience. remove the offending item from chain then continue!

PPS, check that each device is identified and installs correctly on motherboard USB before connecting to a hub!

PPPS, take monitor hub out of equation to begin with and see how you get on, this may be the root of your problem.
