Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
location : Port_#0001.Hub_#0003
Unknown USB Device (code 43)
For the past few weeks or so one of my USB controllers seem to have been malfunctioning. but it was working fine a month ago ,before that i fully recovered my notebook by pressing f11 using hp recovery manager but i lost my finger print sensor as malfunctioned then i tried to clean reinstall windows 7 home premium 64
bit , and activated again using the genuine product keys . all drivers updated but not with fingerprint reader . if i remove the ribbon cable of fingerprint device from the zif connector then i see no more this error in device manager . if i again insert the cable in to that zif connector , then after power on i see the same error in device manager .
uninstalling the Unknown Device through Device Manager does absolutely nothing if any device is plugged in to USB. Doesn't matter which device, the device itself will continue working but Windows will try (and fail) to reinstall whatever driver it thinks is missing, so the Unknown Device comes back straight away.
