Problems with devices and drivers after moving my PC

So a week ago I had my PC in my living room and decided to move it back to my bedroom, but after I moved it and set it up, I suddenly had alot of driver problems.

When I went to check device manager almost evey device had a yellow exclemation mark above it.

And now I cant get my xbox 360 controler to work. It is not a problem with the controller because I checked with another PC and it worked there.

So when I try to update the driver I get a error message '' The driver device for the software was found, but there appeared a problem during the instalation'' And this to '' The driver for this device might be corrupted, or your system may be running low on memory or problems with other resources

And when I start up my PC now it tries to install a bunch of drivers, but most of them fail

And all of this just started happening after I moved my PC 10 meters.

I have been searching the net for about a week for a solution, but there seems to be none, so I hope there is help to get here.

Wow. That's a lot of drivers suddenly gone bad. Not sure why moving the PC should have had that affect...

I'd first try a System Restore. After, you might also Check your hard disk for errors in Windows 7

Because you had this problem after physically moving your computer I'm thinking something got jarred loose. You need to check all connections by removing them one at a time and resetting them.
You should also reset your ram and video card.

Could you fill in you System Spec completely.
With a custom build you surely know your system specs.
Please keep us informed on how things go.

Well I came to the conclusion that i'm just going to reformat my windows and see if that works, but I cant find my Windows 7 Boot disc.

Can I get a new one somewhere or do I need the one that I got with my PC?
