Default PLEASE HELP!!! Usb not recognized.

Something is wrong with my computer and nothing I am reading on the internet is helping.

Nothing new that I am plugging in to my usb is installing. Devices that have never been plugged in. These devices work on other computers. Devices installed before something went wrong still work though. So my USB ports are still working, all my devices work properly, but they dont work on my computer.

Im not to smart with computers.

Open up Device Manager and make sure that nothing is disabled or anything like that.

After that, update your chipset drivers. If you're not sure what those are/are, then post the brand/model of your computer if it's a prebuilt system, or the motherboard model # if it's a custom built computer.

Yes, go ahead and reboot.

Did the updater say it updated the drivers or anything like that when it got done copying?

What about after you rebooted? Any change?

Open up Device Manager and then plug in a device - does the list refresh at all?

Nothing changed after reboot, and the device shows up in the list but it has a yellow exclamation mark and it fails to download driver.
