Windows 7: Lost All USB

14 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Lost All USB

Hello again,

(Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit)

Fitted a second HDD which work well, however I now have no USB devices.

I took care to plug all my USB peripherals into the original slots.

The keyboard and mouse are on USB and they work.

Safely Remove Hardware lists only the USB-to-serial converter, even when it's not plugged in.

USB controllers etc are all listed in Device Manager without question marks.

Unplugging all USB devices (except mouse & keyboard) then plugging one hub in gives a message that the driver is loaded and the device ready for use - but it isn't - the only drives in Explorer and Total Commander are the two hard discs and the DVD writer.

I hope it's something fairly simple. Help !

The USB-2 ones came back of their own accord shortly after I posted the above, followed by the USB-3 ones shortly after the USB-2. I did nothing to initiate this.

Peculiar behaviour !
