Windows 7: USB problems on Windows 7

USB problems on Windows 7

Hi everyone, this the first time I post something on this forum. :)

I've been using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my computer 4 months now, everythng has been working fine, but now suddenly I can't connect anything to the USB-ports.
The only things that works are my keyboard, mouse and external harddrive, if I try to connect anything else Windows can't find any drivers. It start's looking for them on Windows Update, but after a while it says that it can't find anything.
I've set Windows Update to automatically download drivers.

Does anybody have any experience about these kinds of problems? :)

Welcome to SF, Baron.

First please do the following:


In the line at the top of you will see UserCP.
That is an abbreviation for User Control Panel.
Click on UserCP.
In the left-hand column, under Your Profile you will see Edit System Spec.
Click on Edit System Spec
You can copy and paste from the output of Speccy, Speccy - System Information - Free Download to fill out much of the info. Be sure to use the Other Info section of your System Specs for such info as your optical drive, your wireless adapter, your speakers, etc.

Next, check your Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks. Let us know if you do, and include a screen capture.

Did you recently install anything prior to having the USB problem? Any new firewall, anti-virus program, etc.? Make any changes to your registry?

Go ahead and scan with malwarebytes and your virus scanner while you're at it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I haven't installed any new programs or anything recently.

Here's a picture from the device manager when I tried to connect my Belkin n52te speedpad. (My computer is in Swedish, but you can anyway see the yellow exclamation mark in the davice manager :))

God dag.

Well, you have a Belkin Speedpad that is in need of a driver. Try updating this and see if it helps. This is plugged into your USB. Is that working?

Or unplug and remove driver to see if that helps.

No Windows 7 drivers for that unit so Win 7 Update won't find any. Try downloading from here and maybe the Vista drivers will work.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

The Speedpad has been working before, but I had to uninstall it, and now when I tried to reinstall it a couple of days ago it didn't work. I have got the disc whit the driver on it, but it still doesn't install. And I have tried it on my laptop, which also has got 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and there it works right away, and windows downloads the drivers from Update by itself.

But the problem is not just with the Speedpad, everytime I try to connect some new Usb device, it tells me that it can't find a driver for it.

I'll post a picture here from when I tried to connect a normal USB 2.0 hub
