I Need to Forcibly Reinstall USB Drivers!
So this is now the second time this has happened to me.
First time I gave up and reinstalled Windows. I do not want to do this again.
I was trying to clean up a device driver, after unplugging the device, so I enabled device manager to view unplugged devices. While I was at it, I removed all the rest of the unplugged devices, figuring there would be no harm in a little "spring cleaning"
Well apparently I removed something I shouldn't have, as now EVERY USB device I plugin in gives a half-chime several times instead of the full chime (this is what usually happens with a broken device)... I'm talking flash drives, mice, keyboards, whatever. Doesn't matter. It doesn't work. Windows says no driver can be found - which is STUPID because these are standard plug and play drivers!
If I plug them into my USB 3.0 port (which has its own non-standard drivers installed), it works fine.
Is there some way to purge all the hardware drivers so Windows will automatically reinstall them, and thus fix this USB problem? I would really hate to have to reinstall again just because of this stupid problem.
