Windows 7: Plug & Play Peripherals not installing drivers

Plug & Play Peripherals not installing drivers

I made this thread yesterday about my Xbox 360 controller not working: Wired Xbox 360 controller driver problems I thought that was my only problem, but it's now apparant that my windows will no longer allow me to use any plug & play devices other than what I already have installed (my mouse, keyboard, webcam etc.). Any new peripheral I have that I connect that would have worked in the past within seconds now has its driver searched for only to come up with the driver not being able to be installed or even recognised at all.

UPDATE: I've been googling the hell out of this for 3 days now, by chance I found an article for Windows Vista dated from 2008, seems all I had to do was direct the driver install to "C:\windows\winsxs" and bang! Problem sorted, all my USB peripherals auto install quickly again.

Try this:

USB drive or flash problems? How to cleanup and remove old USB storage drivers - TechSpot Forums


That should resolve any issues you have with usb devices unless it is hardware related.

EDIT: Make sure to run this bat file as an admin. Right click the bat file, run as administrator. Code used for the bat is on the website, and verified by me as being the same when editing the bat file.


Nevermind, saw you resolved it.
