Windows 7: USB driver missing in device manage

22 Dec 2014   #1

windows 7 32-bit
USB driver missing in device manage

When restarted my windows 7 x86 the below image appeared on bottom-right corner, saying "USB device not recognized", image 1. And in device manager there is yellow sign of that driver, image 2.
There isn't any USB stick attached to this but whenever I restart the machine this message appears!
I tried to use online updating the driver but it says best driver is already installed!
I don't know how to get rid of this problem.
Please help to solve it.

Right-click on that unknown USB device in Device Manager, select Properties, select the "details" tab, click on the Property dropdown and select the second item (Hardware ID), and post the value shown for that Hardware ID.

We can hopefully suggest where you can get the proper driver if we know the Hardware ID.

It doesn't have to be a USB stick, it could be a keyboard mouse printer etc. What other devices are connected via USB? Is it a desktop PC or a laptop?

It didn't have any ID or ...!

Your link is great :). Thanks.

Yes, I would think of those thing because no USB was attached to that desktop.
Keyboard and mouse are connected by PS/2 port.

I used: 1- That link. 2- scan for hardware changes in device manager. And after these it became solved automatically!

Thank you all very much. :)
