Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)


  • I have had the Microsoft Wireless 2000 Keyboard and mouse for 10 months and it has been working fine. But recently when I plugged it in I got an error message which said :The last USB Device you connected to this computer malfunctioned. and Windows does not recognize it.

    I opened Devices and Printers and it said Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed).

    Also it is on Windows 10 Home
