I was told to disable my USB Controller drivers and like an idiot :) I uninstalled them. When I rebooted they do not come reinstall. How can I reinstall the USB controller drivers? :)

USB Controllers should automatically be re-installed by the operating system when booting up (if they don't exist).

Is it safe to assume none of your USB ports are working?

None of them. Luckily I plugged in my old keyboard so that it wasn't USB (don't have an old moose). Try the reboot but no luck. Should I remove all devices (leaving my ports empty) before I reboot?

Let's check and see if the USB support is disabled in BIOS. Restart your computer and press the F1,F2, or DEL key (differs per manufacturer) to enter your BIOS. When you are they, look for a setting relating to USB support/configuration. If you are uncomfortable navigating the BIOS, make sure you exit and DO NOT save changes.

I'm at work. I did that last night though, they are enabled. I was reading a blog and it was mentioned that you should remove all devices before uninstalling (which I didn't do, it's bad enough I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing in the first place), so I thought maybe they should be removed before rebooting. I'll try that when I get home.

Do you have any Idea why my Ipod Shuffel and Pioneer GEX-MP3 Xm radio aren't seen by my puters? They show up as "Other Device - Ipod/GEX-MP3" in the device manager. They don't show up in Itunes(Ipod) or Media Player(GEX)or Explorer either. That's why I tried Disabling(uninstalling :) )my USB Controllers.

Are they not being seen by any computer? Or just by yours?

Sounds like there is an issue with those devices now, they may have been compromised by whatever the last system they were attached to was. Have you tried doing a manual restore/reset of the iPod? If not I would start there.

Let's see if there are any unknown devices - in this case usb controllers.

  • Right-Click 'My Computer'.
  • Select 'Manage'.
  • Select 'Device Manager'
  • See if there are any devices with a yellow exclamation point.
In your next reply, please list the names of any unknown devices reported.
