Hi. I have received the following message (see 1st
image below) the last 5-6 times I have booted my computer (and once about 2 months ago). Along with the message shown, there was also a systray icon that looks like the USB symbol, but the icon disappears before I have a chance to right or left click on it. I have not attached any new devices to my computer nor have I installed any new programs lately (other than updates). I looked in the Event Log, etc. to see if there were any other messages referring to this, but could not find any. I also looked in Device Manager to see if there were any problems noted, but there were not.
In Device Manager, though, I was able to find the "Intel 82801DB/DBM USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller – 24CD" (which is listed in the top line of the message below); its location was given as: PCI bus 0, device 29, function 7, but I have no idea how to translate this into a physical location.
I also don't know which device the message refers to, as it just states "USB Composite Device." Obviously it is referring to a "Hi-Speed USB device," but as far as specifics, I don't know which device this is.
I used "System Information" to try to find out more info about the device and/or port as well as to see if there were any sharing errors/conflicts. I did not find any, though. I did find under "USB" an entry labeled "USB Composite Device," which is shown in the second screencapture shot below, giving a Plug-and-Play Device ID.
My computer seems to be doing okay except for a few minor annoyances that are probably unrelated. I have a ton of error and warning messages in my event viewer. I am also having trouble using all of the features of my HP Photosmart printer (the basic features work okay, though). And lastly, for the last 2-3 weeks, when I try to reboot or shut down, it logs out of Windows okay, but about half of the time it then "hangs" at the blue shut-down screen (for hours) until I manually hit the power button on the tower. But as far as functionality and speed, it seems to be doing okay.
If someone can help me figure this out so that (A) I won't get this message every time I boot up, and more importantly (
so that my computer and devices will function optimally, I would greatly appreciate it. If you need any more information from me, please don't hesitate to ask. Could it be that this computer, purchased in 2002, does not contain USB 2.0
ports? Or could it be related to my inability to use the advanced features on my HP Photosmart All-in-One printer (e.g. HP Photosmart Share)?
