Do you have the proper chipset drivers loaded for your motherboard and/or the USB ports?

Day 2, and I've spotted in device manager that two of my PCI to USB host controllers have a yellow triangle beside them! Should I unistall these 2 and reboot?

That would be the best bet. Also what make is your motherboard?

You can use CPUZ to determine your make/model
