USB mass storage devices dont show in explorer.exe

Hi.I've been experiencing this issue since a week,searched a lot still,found no solution.
My laptops USB ports are fine.I have many USB mass storage devices which I can use with other PCs with win xp,7,8,etc. But in my laptop,windows just makes new device connected sound,but nothing appear in explorer or in disk management.Not even the device shows in Disk management.Safely remove hardware icon appear in system tray upon inserting the device into USB port,but when I click it,it just shows my PC name and below,some dots(...).Please someone help.No USB pendrives or card readers are recognized and I tried a lot of solutions,but none worked for me.I even uninstalled the driver and tried.no luck.
