Windows 7: USB drivers not installing

USB drivers not installing

I have many usb sticks and a ext drive and none of them will install on my desktop. Everything works on my laptop with no problems.

I have uninstalled from device manager and reinstalled drivers. I have the drivers. They show up in Device manager as active an working, however when i insert a usb drive/stick i get yellow exclamation point under disk drives, and a msg in properties says cannot start device (code 10). I tried many times to uninstall and reinstall drivers. Changed sata cables and sata inputs. It's not one usb port, its the 4 upfront (2 - 2.0 and 2 - 3.0) and the available ones in the back. I do have my keyboard and mouse on usb and they work fine.

Can't think of anything else to try aside from a complete reinstall of windows. Any help in advance would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks Torchwood. After reading through that, i remembered i had my old ssd. Plugged it back in and booted up. USBs worked fine. Guessed it was time to just reinstall. I cloned this drive from a smaller one with Samsung Magician. Decided to do a quick search if there was a problem with the cloning and came across this Gem!

Thanks for the help and for jogging my memory of the cloning.
Cheers!

USB and Installing Drivers
Anyone else annoyed by having to install the drivers for your devices for EACH USB port in your computer? If you accidentally plug a device in to another port that you don't use for it, it has to take a good amount of time to install the drivers.
