Usb ports giving power but not detecting devices at all.

I have dell inspiron 5520 and previously windows 7 was installed on it and now I have clean installed windows 10, after installation i noticed that usb ports are no longer detecting devices. In the device manager i can see exclamation mark on USB xHCI compliant host controller with error code 10. It must be some driver problem. I tried every solution on the internet related to this problem but all in vain. Please help its really frustrating and disappointing.

I have tried following solutions so far:

  • uninstall driver and restart
  • installed windows updates
  • downloaded drivers from vendor's site
  • updated bios

A friend of mine has same laptop with windows 10 and his ports are working.

RE: Usb ports giving power but not detecting devices at all.

Open device manager and uninstall or remove the host controller then shutdown and reboot the computer. Windows should recognize the controller and install drivers.
