USB hub code 10 error

  grussell 20:37 15 Feb 2008

I'm having a problem whereby my laptop won't recognise a powered or non-powered usb hub. In the device manager/ properties menu it says 'This device cannot start (Code 10). All drivers are installed and up-to-date. There is no problem with the hub itself as i have tried 2 seperate ones. The USB ports do work themselves just not with a hub.

I have a HP laptop and using Vista Basic and have searched on this problem and a lot of explanations say to go into the registry and delete the upper and/ or lower filters of a particular section, i have done this and it still does not work.

Can anyone suggest what the problem could be?
