Logitech G400 mouse suddenly stopped working.

So i just turned on my system yesterday only to see that it is not recognizing my mouse anymore. It’s just shows this error under device manager.

“Unknown USB device device descriptor request failed error code 43”

I have tried every possible solution on the google yet nothing worked out so far. Some of the solutions i tried are - restarting system, updating drivers, using different usb port, disabling usb suspend from power options etc.

The mouse is not working even in other systems, with same error message. But yet it is so strange that the mouse works flawlessly in all my android smartphones via otg cable. Why is that?

Have you tried downloading and using Logitech Unifying Software. or maybe renew the battery on it.Only uses 1 battery on my M310 mouse.

G400 is a wired usb mouse, hence no batteries are required.

Use USBdeview to remove the mouse from the system and to remove all instances of the driver from the registry - the download link is at the bottom of the linked page.

remove the mouse and Reboot the machine when windows loads reconnect the mouse and windows should find the mouse and reinstall the driver

This mouse is supposed to be plug and play, i don't think it will make any difference. I have tested this with 3 different machines and all shows up the same error. The only thing it works on is an android phone.

If it is less than 3 years old contact Logitech they are very good at replacing faulty items.

I know it's very old now but i just wasn't expecting it to go down on me so suddenly. It was working fine just the other day till i turned off my system. I don't understand why it's working fine in android environment?

I think the problem lies on the USB chip on the mouse. Maybe it is damaged in some way, so that it’s not working properly with the drivers on a PC.

You're right... I think it's something on the hardware level. I tested the mouse on Ubuntu, it worked fine for 10 min then started acting weird. Pretty soon it wasn't working anymore.. I guess the mouse hardware was beginning to die when windows had failed to recognize it. Now it's totally dead even on Ubuntu and my android phone. Time to buy a new mouse.

It was such a shock to me.. Never know when these things fails on you.. Thank you for all the help.

How do i close this thread?
