The WebCam I can go without but not the USB port !
I am getting the same message from Windows want ever device I plug-in
-Basic USB key (Sandisk Cruzer Micro) or a Microsoft Optical mouse in all the ports. I get Unknown device
Any suggestions ?
Did you recently upgrade from Windows XP to Vista? If so, be sure you have all the information you need: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Upgrading-from-Windows-XP-to-Windows-Vista, especially the included upgrade advisor tool! This tool would let you know any problems prior to installation.
As far as your webcam goes, it looks like you have correctly pinpointed the driver issues, for more information about getting up-to-date drivers go here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/The-hunt-for-drivers-How-to-find-Windows-Vista-drivers-for-all-your-hardware. If it is older hardware you may have to replace with a compatible model.
Do not give up. You may be able to find the problem with the USB port in question by consulting your troubleshooters: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Troubleshooting-in-Windows.
If all else fails, it may be necessary to replace hardware.
