2x USB Ports not recognizing Devices


I have a Hp Pavillion and on it are 3 usb ports the 1 on the right works fine with all devices but the 2 left ones wont work at all no matter the device, I have tried installing all drivers.

In device manager under > Other Devices > hidden devices I can see my logitech gaming mouse g500 but it doesnt work, Also in other devices is a Universal serial bus(USB) Controller which has a Yellow ! on it but I cant find a driver to it what could be stopping the ports from working.

They both work in linux and Windows 8 Just not windows 7.


solved it. I used PCI Vendor Database.
