Default Vista not able to download drivers?

Past few days vista won't install my hardware drivers. My pen drives don't work, and I have a PS2 to USB keyboard adapter that won't work. These things don't have sites where I can download drivers. Is it just that vista's driver support is that bad? My pen drive use to work which is why I question it. Any ideas?

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go

Have you restarted recently? Have you had any other hardware changes? Are you sure the device drivers are all correct?

There was a update released Tuesday that has been known to cause a few issue. But nothing like what you have described.

Restart and see if it helps.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
