USB Ports Not Working

Hi everyone, i've just replaced the motherboard in my PC (well, I got someone else to!) and upgraded it to Windows7, it's come back and the USB ports don't work.

So i checked Device Manager and each of the USB entries have an error graphic - and the error is:

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Each USB entry says:
Intel (R) N10/ICH7 Family USB Controller - 27C8
Intel (R) N10/ICH7 Family USB Controller - 27C9
Intel (R) N10/ICH7 Family USB Controller - 27CA
Intel (R) N10/ICH7 Family USB Controller - 27CB
Intel (R) N10/ICH7 Family USB Controller - 27CC

I've searched the Intel website for N10/ICH7 drivers and the download center says no results.

Anyone know which drivers i need to get my USBs back online and where i can find them?

Ta

  1. right click then uninstall all of the USB drivers (if you cannot uninstall try the remove option instead) in DEVICE MANAGER reboot your pc and they should reinstall automatically.
  2. I know this is WinXP related but it might explain a few things, scroll down to Error 39:
