Bumping this up need help with USB studio mic

Hello all...

My son's laptop is giving him an error message in his taskbar that tells him one of his "USB devices has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it."
He is running Vista and has no other issues with the laptop.

The device is for his microphone that is a studio mic used for recording music.
He lives in another state and I am not there to check it all out. But, I did ask him to check his device mgr and there is nothing wrong there. No issues with any USB's. The mic does NOT have drivers. I even asked him to uninstall his Audacity recording program and reinstall it and still nothing. He has used this mic already many, many times so it is not like it is not compatible with Vista.
He put the mic in his other USB ports and still the same error message.

I appreciate anyone's help with this problem...

Thanks, Viv

First thing to do is try it in another computer - if you get the same message then the microphone is U/S.

I dont' think I would have played with the programs. Plug it in and then go to event viewer logs. They may help .This is because the OS is saying there is a problem.

Any time based nstance that may have caused it? Such as installed some program or dropped mic or anything associated with the stop?

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

TY for your replies.

Johnr,
Problem is my son does not have another computer in the house. So, he has no way of telling.

jefro,
I will tell him to go to event viewer logs. Strange how this happened out of nowhere. No, he said he did not drop it nor installed anything new. It simply just appeared like this.

It certainly is strange.

Thanks for your help.

Viv
