Windows 7: NO Sound video and game controllers, then lost USB ports

23 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 7

I took the hard drive out and copied all the user files off. I put the hard drive back into the box and did a complete reset to factory image. It took a long time but it finally reinstalled windows and I now have no problems with either the sound or the USB ports. Thanks for your feedback and assistance. :-)

Good to hear, yeah usb stack and drivers can be a pain sometimes that's why you make system backups if you got the external space to spare.
