are you sure about that? how would the ports work without the drivers?

I agree with Gamer - uninstall all of them, then scan for new hardware. Windows should detect and install the required drivers, replacing the damaged ones. Hopefully everything will be fixed. And, in the future, I'd stay away from whatever hack you found for your PS3 controller!

If anything, it should attempt to reinstall them on the next reboot. I'm not guaranteeing it will work though.

If it doesn't work, you can always restore to a previous restore point.

If it was automatically installed when you first installed Windows 7 then it should do the same for that.

Not unless you uninstall it, too. I think your system is hosed. At this point, you should probably try to do a repair action instead of messing around in the device manager.

Agreed, if those do not work (repair, or device manager) then your likely stuck with reinstalling Windows from scratch. :|

We learn from our mistakes, I hope you learned not to do what you did again.

yeah it doesn't seem to have worked. I'll try a system restore, and if that fails I guess I'll have to install windows again...ugh

Try a repair action first. It's much quicker than a full install.
