M5STICK-C - Windows 10 no longer recognizes it when plugged in.

  • Hello, I have an older M5STICK-C which I bought on banggood.com and have been using it on and off for a few years on both my desktop and laptop.
    However, more recently I cannot use it as it will no longer numerate with either computer.

    When I look at the USB Interface properties it says:
    "This device cannot start. (Code 10)
    A request for the USB device descriptor failed"

    Another observation which I am not sure if it is related is the screen will show "Not found" and I have no idea why? When it was working I was never trying to display these two words so I am not sure if this is related or not. Searching brings up nothing useful.

    I have tried reloading the ftdi drivers a number of times and many other things I found while googling and nothing works.

    If I recall, my last use was after buying the ADC plug in module and it was working great, then I got bored and set it aside. Many months later, I got interested again only to discover it no longer connects to my computer.
