Recently got hold of an unwanted machine for my mother, after all the general messing around, updating, driver hunting etc, I find that none of the USB ports will respond.
I've done the usual stuff like uninstalling the Universal Serial Bus controllers and rebooting to let windows figure it out for itself, but it hasn't worked. Occasionally windows will complain about an unknown device attached to a port which isn't working properly, but it will dissapear as quickly as it came.
I'm out of ideas, the only thing I can think of is that one of the ports is shorted inside which is somehow spoofing a device connected to that port, whilst at the same time fragging all of the others.
Anyone else have any ideas for anything I could try, the bog standard PS2 mouse I'm using with no scroll wheel is killing me.
Edit: The Device manager, as it stands on this machine:
