USB Connections are not working

My USB connections have stopped recognising anything that i plug into them, despite the device recognising it's been plugged in. I have an assortment of devices which all use different cables, and none of them when plugged in are recognised either by the computer (with the 2 beeps) or their respective software. according to the device manager the USB controllers are all working properly.

Also, I'm not sure whether this is related or not, but i've been doing attempting some amatuer problem solving on these, and whilst in the device manager some strange things have been happening.
Scanning for hardware changes, one of my Secondary IDE channels in the IDe ATA/ATAPI Controllers part of the tree had a yellow exclamation mark symbol, i tried troubleshooting but got 'blued' with a message similar to "a thread that is crucial to the system was corrupted or something so the computer has crashed itself to prevent further damage". I then rebooted, scanned for a hardware change again, this time it blued with a kernel-related error which im gonna try to sort out in the software forum now. Since the second crash i have only got one Secondary IDE channel instead of the usual 2.

Does this sound correctable without any spending of money? I have plenty of time, but no money :-)

Many Thanks

I think this is a software problem with Windows in that it sees the hardware, it just does not try to find the correxct drivers to run the hardware. You might look here for answers.
