Windows 7: Strange USB device issue

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
 
 

Just a quick update after carrying out a Repair Install of Windows 7.

Whatever the issue was has disappeared with the repair, the USB devices are recognised properly and can now be safely removed, so that is all good

Having carried out the 100+ Windows updates the system is stable and speed is definitely better, this was something I hadn't noticed had degraded.

The tutorial for the Repair Install warned that graphics drivers may have to be reinstalled and I found out that my nVidia 7900GTX cards would not use drivers above 260.99 if I tried the later ones I suffered serious graphic corruption and couldn't even open jpg files without causing the drivers to crash. Once I have downgraded to the above though all was well.

Many thanks to Britton30 and pooch for guiding me through this process and pointing me in the right direction.

Regards
Mervyn

You are welcome! Yes, nVIDIA drivers are a bit silly, I'm using an older one myself, 270.61.

I had an identical problem with the ... apearing instead of the Eject option. Method two from this page solved it. Device Manager empty or blank in Windows? The bit that says Reset permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects solved it for me.
