Hello i have been having some issues with my I2C HID Device The device cannot start code 10

HP Laptop - 15-ef1003ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I've been having a lot of problems with my touchpad ( I2C HID Device) I've tried disabling it and enabling it but I keep seeing that caution mark. I went into properties to see what is wrong and it said 

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

A request for the HID descriptor failed.

please help me fix this

thanks,

@Dont_PontThe fact that the hardware tests failed is a worry. You *could* try doing a factory reset, but I doubt it'll make any difference.

If it's not under warranty any more, then you could try disassembling it, removing the top cover / palm rest and re-seat the ribbon cable for the TP, but again, I've not had much luck in the past with this. Touch pads work or don't, there's not usually an in-between.

If it's under warranty (or if you want to try anyway) call HP and quote the error code or QR code (that the diags gave you) when you call.

Otherwise, get yourself a wireless or Bluetooth mouse instead of the TP.

Sorry.

HID == Human Interface Device

 

USB devices, such as the touchpad, are "plug-and-play", but your touchpad is not telling Windows its "description" of what it is (keyboard? webcam? printer? mouse? touchpad?).

 

Contact HP Parts, and see if they can sell you an "original equipment" replacement. However, disassembling your laptop to physically replace the touchpad is a job that should be outsourced to a certified HP technician.

This is often a driver issue. It can happen after Windows updates.  If you install the HP update utility and let it do all it's updates, including BIOS it should work.  You could try cleaning it gently, with the battery out and unplugged. Use Isopropyl alcohol, just put a few drops onto the buttons and let sit for half an hour. Clean up after with  a cotton bud.  If the keys are stuck they can cause problems.

With the PC off, turn it on and quickly start tapping F2, this will bring you into UEFI diags, go to component tests, then Mouse/Trackpad. Run these tests, if these all pass, then your hardware is OK and we need to look at the drivers / software.

If the tests fail, or if the Mouse / trackpad option does not appear, then that means the system is not detecting the trackpad on a hardware level. This means we need to head in a different direction regarding the diagnosis.

Run this and let us know the results so we can assist further.

You could use a code reader on your phone. Some laptops have touchpad on /off buttons or fn/function keys. Have you looked this up for your model? It may be deactivated it the bios setup either?

Still no luck do you think doing a reset on my laptop would work?
