i unplugged my ducky while it was automatically installing the drivers and from now on the ducky is not recognised. how do i make the ducky go back to automatically installing the drivers without failing?

the error i get is

"device driver software was not successfully installed."

Have you done any HID changes to it? Is this a recent purchase? Please explain more on events that lead up to this. The ducky should install automatically with default drivers without any issues.

no i havn't made any hid changes and no it's not a recent purchase. the ducky still works properly on another pc. what caused this problem was me unplugging the ducky while it was in the middle of automatically installing the driver.

That might be the issue, plug it in and open device manager. It should show it with a yellow exclamation point. Right click it and "Uninstall" and also uninstall drivers. Reboot and try the ducky again.

i clicked uninstall but there was no option to delete the drivers. i then rebooted. that didn't fix it.

See if you can find a tool to "clean" the USB Store (old USB devices that have been plugged in) from your registry.

Then try again.

okay so i just tried what you said by using this guide to drivecleanup.exe http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/usb-drive-or-flash-problems-how-to-cleanup-and-remove-old-usb-storage-drivers.145884/

i also tried usboblivion http://www.cherubicsoft.com/en/projects/usboblivion

all drives installed new drivers but it still did not fix the issue.

If the ducky works in other machines, then it is something up with the system you are using. It could be a ton of things. Try a different USB Port. If that doesn't work, I am out of ideas.

you're right i broke my system somehow. new usb devices wont auto install drivers either on any of the ports. i will just take my pc in to the shop to get fixed if you don't know what else i can try. thanks for trying to help.

Just use system restore to roll back to before you did what you did to break it. Seriously repairing a computer shouldn't cost you anything if you are using duckies etc,
