I keep getting USB Device Not recognized message. My computer has also been freezing up sporadically. I had it run through malware on this topic, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic474512.html/page__p__2889766__fromsearch__1#entry2889766. It is clean of that. I have an Acer Aspire One with intel atom and 1.6ghz and 1GB of RAM. Please advise. Thanks.

Hello GGT54,

I just red your thread and see your problem isn't quite resolve.

You can ask them to reopen the thread but I have my theories

Can you please run this fixit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/871233 and please post back if that work

Is it One USB port or All of them

I keep getting USB Device Not recognized message.

When you say you "keep getting" do you mean it's random? What device (if any) stop working or what device exactly are you plugging in? Have you tested all the ports? Have you tested your device on a different machine?

I am not trying to plug anything in. It just keeps popping up and it has nothing to do with hibernation. Why do you think my other thread was not resolved? Please advise. Thanks.

I am not trying to plug anything in.

Ok. Just thought I'd ask first.

What devices do you currently have plugged in via USB? Mouse, keyboard, Wireless adapter? Have you tried unplugging those one at a time to see if the error persists? (This could tell you whether a device driver, or the device itself, may be failing. One additional thing to note, make sure all the USB ports are dust free.

Nothing is plugged in which is why it is strange. It is occurring without any usb devices being connected.

I'd check device manager and see if anything pops up there the moment you get the message.

I've never personally encountered this error with XP, but here's other things I found online.

* Try plugging in a USB device to all ports (one at a time) see if they're all working
* Try uninstalling your USB Controller. You can do this through Device Manager
* Unplug power supply - Seems to suggest that it may be a temporary issue that can be reset by unplugging the power supply connector from the motherboard and plugging it back in. If you don't know much about unplugging it, it's a harmless task but try other things before going here.

My next suggestion would be to boot up in safe mode or with a linux live cd and see if you experience similar problems. This would help determine whether the problem is hardware or software related.

I think it is my internal webcam. I might uninstall it.
