please help Device drivers not successfully installed

This all started when I finally bought an external hard drive (seagate 2TB go flex).. Plugged it in and little notification popped up saying device driver not successfully installed. This also happens when I plug in my 16GB micro cruzer. Installed drivers from Scan Disk website still not working. Ran trouble shooter and it found drivers but encountered a problem installing them. USB 2.0 ~ CRW. Generic- multi-card usb device. and keyboard filter. I've updated chipset from along with many other updates through windows update. Listened to a friend and updated BIOS from HP. Start computer and notification window pops up saying "device driver software was not successfully installed"
PCI data acquisition and signal processing controller
HP wbcam-101

All failed with a big red X

I used hp recover and reinstalled Realtek usb 2.0 card reader and realtek PCI-E fast ethernet NIC driver with no change.
I'm thinking of using the recovery disks i made when pc was new to reinstall windows... Will this work??
PS. My 2 other jump drives do function normally. but i recently loss the use of my wireless mouse
Thanks in advance
