Windows 7: OS not seeing removable devices

OS not seeing removable drives

I've just switch over from fresh install of W10 that was supposed to be my daily driver, back to W7 and because I didn't made image CD's of W7 like moran that I am, now I have to set it up all over again. I thought I've done it like I did before wiping my SSD and switching to W10 but it turns out that I haven't because this time my OS does not recognize any removable drives like Thumb drives, ext HDD's or my phone. I beat that it has something to do with driver for the chipset on my motherboard. Which is amd 9 series. But the case is that I did install it. I went to manufacturer's web site, dl appropriate driver(mb_driver_chipset_amd9series_win) and rune it. For a minute it worked as I could see any ext drive I hooked up to my PC, but that was till reboot. When I switch my PC off for the night and started it up today, first I was greeted by the message that displays before windows starts to load up saying that system is checking integrity of the files on disk c. I saw it deleted some entries and windows started. Since then OS is unable to detect any ext drives.
What's going on here? Why is this happening and what I did wrong this time?

Just installed the driver again but nothing. It's important to me as I do connect my phone to my PC very often. Before I've try W10 my phone was seen by the system as separate removable device but now whenever I plug it in it doesn't show up in Windows explorer, it doesn't show up as some USB device plugged in in Device manager, I even don't see it in Disk management.
What's up with this??!
