Windows 7: Problem connecting new devices - windows cannot find common drivers

I see it from the other side:
It was working (usb ports) for almost a month and now it's not working for some reason, and I think the problem is not in drivers I used after installing OS (because everything was working fine).
I agree that reinstalling Windows will be easiest solution, but if it happen again (usb not working) it will be wasted time, and I will be in the same point i'm right now.

Anyway, no solution for me this time

I think you would have to look at what else has been installed and correlate that with when the problem started work back in effect there may be a problem somewhere.

One thing you can try is use system restore to return your machine to an earlier point in time before the problem happened and see if that cures it and then work out what programs or downloads that you currently have installed that are not installed and then install one by one and check USB ports.

Another option is to use msconfig and go to startup and uncheck half the startup items and reboot and see if that cures the problem then checkmark one satrtup item at a time doing a re-boot and cheking if the usb ports are active.
If the usb ports are not working after unchecking half the startup items then uncheck a further 5 items and check after reboot until you find it works.

You may find an offending startup item that may be interfereing and find the program or driver that is the offender.

Also in msconfig if startup items is unsuccessful click on services place a checkmark on hide all microsoft services and repeat the above.

Yes, I agree, but before that is there any way to "force" installation of Intel drivers? What is causing the error during installation?

You could try downloading revo installer and see ifthat can force an install.

First open a cmd prompt by right clicking and choosing run as administrator and type:

sfc /scannow press enter

Let it repair anything it finds and restart computer if prompted to do so.

Try and do the install again.

Correct me if im wrong but there is no such app like revoinstaller. I only found revo uninstaller and this app don't have "install" option
