The message by itself didn't tell me much. For me the last time it was a failed USB cable. But it can be something else. The message does not tell you what piece it is.
So you know to try other cables and devices and hope it's not the PC.
I currently have a laptop with windows 10 home 64 bit
Started about 2 months ago whenever I start the computer a message pops up in window and it says
"The last usb device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows doesn't recognize it "
Recommendation - Try reconnecting the device. If windows still does not recognize, your device may not be working properly"
Any help please it drives me nuts
