Windows 7: USB Host Controller problem

USB Host Controller problem


Have the following problem I've so far been unable to solve.
I have an ASUS P5K-E running 32 bit Windows 7. In device manager the following are highlighted with the following message.
-Standard Universal PCI to USB Host Controller
-VIA Rev 5 or Later USB Universal Host Controller
-VIA USB Enhanced Host Controller
"This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)"
I cannot get the support CD from ASUS to run as it says non supported O/S and compatibility does not allow it either and so far have been unable to source correct drivers from ASUS or the Internet.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

Is this under USB or system (in device Manager)

Can you go to the Properties, in Details tab, drop down to select Hadware ID. Can you screenshot this info. Might as well do it for each device while you are there.
