What is the Device - the computer itself? Likely a driver which troubleshooter will reveal. If not check Device manager. Driver Install - Device Manager

Did you use the chipset provided by the WIn7 installer, or have you updated it from the mobo's Support Downloads webpage? You may need to update USB controller, or roll back to installer-provided. Never update drivers from installer unless performance requires it.

Troubleshooting fundamentals for Win7
Could you guide me a little more. From what I understand, I should stick with Windows 7 provided drivers and shouldn't have used the CD that came with my motherboard? I have an ASUS M4A785-M motherboard...where can I get USB controller driver?
Maybe here?:
ASUS M4A785-M drivers & bios

Looks you have AMD Chipset 7 serie...there's some for Win7 x32 & x64.
