Device manager issues in windows 7

Hello, Ihave a Toshiba Satellite running Win7 Ultimate. Recently my device manager has been having problems. Any device I connect through the usb shows up under the category of other devices and is either missing the driver or shows connected but will not work. I have tried 2 different flash drives 2 mice and all the same result.

  1. try uninstalling the USB entries

    and then rebooting
  2. If the above suggestion does not work then your USB ports may be faulty, have you tried them all without any intermediate hub?
  3. Yes I have tried each and I have tried to uninstall the usb entries and reboot. Would reinstalling the OS make a difference?

    It may do, certainly you should do this before condemning the USB ports. If you have a PCMCIA interface you can fit a card to add USB ports.
