My PC is broken and I don't know why

  Callumwhite32 01:23 24 Nov 2018

So, I have tried EVERYTHING I can think to try. I'm getting code 43 port reset failed on every single usb device I plug in. This has happened so suddenly my pc was literally working 5 mins before it wasn't. I just don't know what to do I've tried literally everything I need to know if there's anything else I can do.

I've tried CMOS battery I can't get unit bios because my keyboard doesn't work - even with the ps/2 adapter which is weird because my mouse works with that but only that. I've tried taking it apart and putting it back togetherm I've tried individual hardware tests and it's not my hardware apparently. I've tried driver updates. I've tried malware antivirus.

Literally on the verge of smashing it to pieces it's making me so angry now.

Any advice is appreciated.

Yes - Turn it off and go to bed.

Tomorrow morning disconnect everything but the keyboard, preferably a PS2 one and tell us again

  1. Power - Restart (not shutdown), see if the ports work after its rebooted.

  2. Uninstall everything under the heading USB in device manager then repeat no 1. windows should reinstall the USB drivers on reboot.

I tried both of those suggestions and still it's the same, port reset failed and usb not recognised for everything.

Could it possibly be a hardware issue?

Yes it could - worse case scenario is the onboard non replaceable fuse has blown if you have overloaded the ports.

you could try USBDOblivian to remove all USB info from the registry and then reboot and see if windows will find and re install the devices.
