    The Unsolvable USB Code 43 Error

    I built my PC from scratch on Friday 18th April. On the evening of 21st April I turned my PC on and saw a USB error popping up in a yellow box on the bottom right of my screen. This error was popping up every 5 seconds without fail.

    I tried to uninstall the drivers for all USB ports and reinstall but this didn't work. Instead I inspected the error from my Device Manager and read this:

    "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) A request for the USB device descriptor failed." ((Port_#0011.Hub_#0003)) My USB devices

    I have a Gigabyte H87 3HD Motherboard, a Nvidia GTX 760 graphics card, Intel i5 4440 Quad core processor, EVGA 650w Power Supply. I have Windows 8.1 64-bit as an OS.

    With all my USB devices plugged in or without ANY plugged in, the error still pops up regardless. This leads me to believe it could be a problem with the motherboard itself.

    I have tried the following solutions:

    • On and Off again
    • Updated BIOS to F6 Version
    • Updated Windows 8.1
    • Updated Chipset + all Drivers
    • Windows Hot Fixes
    • Using CMD and NetMon to asses the USB ports
    • System restore

    I even right clicked on the error on the Device Manager, uninstalled and the error was still pinging up. Is my computer haunted?

    None of these have worked. I feel like I have exhausted all my options hence why I have named the thread as such.

    I'm to try uninstalling Windows 8.1 tonight as well but essentially all the Windows Code 43 support pages have nothing available that has worked yet

    Hello Jason Vowles,

    It could very well be damaged hardware; however, have you tried uninstalling the actual Generic Hub (image 1) and also deleting any unused (eg, hidden) profiles that may be associated with same (image 2)?
