Hello, I have a recurring issue regarding an unknown USB device on my laptop computer (Lenovo Legion 5i). When this issue occurs, it disables my keyboard and prevents me from using any of the keyboard buttons, forcing the use of an external keyboard. All other functions of the computer work as intended, just the on-computer keyboard.

The first time this issue occurred, my attempts of fixing the computer caused a BSOD fatal error loop, which I then sent to the local Best Buy Geek Squad for repairs. I have received the laptop in working condition on 5/6/2022, and when the same issue occurred, I followed all known methods to try and resolve the problem (restart computer, uninstall keyboard driver -> restart, disable -> enable driver, system restore, full reset) with no success. I ran a device troubleshooter and found an unknown USB device with an error. I manually updated the driver for said USB device, which cleared it up and had no issues until today.


As of today 5/18/2022, the on-computer keyboard has become unresponsive again and the same device issue has returned, and the previous methods I have mentioned do not work. All latest updates have been downloaded. What could be the issue and is there a solution?

*EDIT: I got in contact with Michelle from Microsoft Help Support and she did her best though Quick Assist to resolve the issue, ending with a download of an updated version of Windows. Still not working and the same error persists.


The solutions below can be tried to fix the error.


1. Reinstall the USB driver.


Press Windows + X and open the Device Manager > Expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers > Right-click on the USB device which is not being recognized by Windows and select Properties > Click Uninstall > After that, visit the brand manufacturer’s official website and download the latest version of the driver and install it.


2. Disable Fast Startup.


Open the Control Panel and set the view mode as big icons > Click on Power Options > Select Choose what the power buttons do in the left pane > Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable > Under Shutdown settings, uncheck the box next to Turn on fast startup (recommended) > Then click on the Save changes button > Restart your PC.


3. Change Settings of USB Root Hub.


Press Windows + X and open the Device Manager > Expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers > Right-click on USB Root Hub and click Properties > Shift to the Power Management tab > Uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power and click OK.


4. Check and repair disks.


Type: cmd from the Windows search box > Right-click on Command Prompt and click Run as administrator > In the open command prompt window, enter: chkdsk C: /f /r [C: refers to the drive letter of the system disk, you can change the drive letter according to the actual location where the application is installed] > Hit Enter key to run the command.
