    Hi there

    Try this: Goto Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Right-click 1st 'USB Root Hub' > Properties > Advanced. Unchecked 'Allow computer to disable this to save power'. Do the same for the rest. It worked for me when I got messages like 'USB Device Malfunctioned', 'Unknown Device' or 'USB Device Not Recognized'. Have a great day!

    Does it show as 'Unknown Device' in Device Manager? Nvm, do the same on another computer. It would work as it did on my friend's just two days ago.
