USB and CD Rom Issues w/ drivers Help!

Prelim Infomation:
-Using Fujitsu Lifebook t5010
-Windows 7 32 Bit
-Checked & Clean of all viruses and spyware
-4 GB Ram, Intel 2.66 ghz core duo processor
-Very new comp

I recently upgraded my windows vista to windows 7, and while i had no difficulties during the upgrade, once upgraded none of my usb drives work and my cd rom drive is not recognized.
-All driver updates fail no matter what i plug in
-Device manager continually refeshes every 3-4 seconds
-CD/DVD rom drive does not show up in "My Computer" and driver fails to install
-Both USB and CD/DVD Drive show up in bios so they are plugged in so to speak

Because of this i now have no method of inputing info into my comp, no flash, external or cds to go back to windows vista or use a recovery disk

Thank you for the help, these forums are a lifesaver!

Did you do a real upgrade or a fresh install. The upgrades have all kinds of problems. if that is what you did, maybe you should consider a clean install.

There should be drivers in the install disc. Try it and see. Make a new 50gig partition for windows first, so you have an clean isolated space to work in.

thanks for the interest and help,

i dont think i can run the driver disk because i am basically working without a cd drive, so im stuck in this catch 22 situation.

The fact that you current Win7 does not recognize the CD drive does not mean that the BIOS cannot boot from it. Just throw the installation CD in and see what happens. Change the boot sequence in the BIOS. You can always cancel if you don't want to proceed.
