Ive gotten to the point where I have to reach out for assistance. This issue is making me pull my hair out!
I plug my Arduino UNO in, the green light is on, and there's a steady blink coming from the orange led on the board... no matter how many different ways I try, I cant seem to get the drivers installed properly. On device manager, I have Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed).. I've attempted updating the driver manually numerous times, as well as uninstalling it and each time it tells me that "Windows has determined that the best driver for this device is already installed." I did manually browse the folder where Arduino drivers are located, and that's the message I get.. I also attempted to "Have Disk" just to see if that worked... after selecting Arduino.inf, windows tells me " The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems." I've tried plugging it in different USB ports, all have the same outcome. When I'm in device manager, I show hidden devices and I do NOT see any COM ports. When I run Arduino, I click on Tools, then I am unable to click on "Port" because it is grayed out.. I'm not sure if this is by default, but right above "port" it has "Board: Arduino/Genuino Uno" already selected like it knows what's plugged in. I took this board to work, and plugged it into another PC and sure as hell it worked fine..
I'm using a Gateway Windows 10 64bit desktop computer.
I apologize if I'm missing something obvious, but I don't know what else to do. I appreciate your time reading this and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. :) Thank you
