    I used to play games on my desktop with the gamepad connected to front usb. Recently I unplugged it to connect a wireless mosue (another mouse is plugged directly in rear usb).
    Now, I removed the front wireless mouse trying to connect my gamepad and what happens is that as soon as i plug the gamepad the rear mouse stops working. Also the computer doesnot recognize the gamepad no matter where I plug the gamepad into any usb port, the pc won't recognize it.

    I open the devise manager and see that the front port is highlighted with a yellow flag and says that it is not working properly. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the devise and reboot but doesnot work. Also tried connecting the gamepad while restarting the pc but the computer does not boot.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The yellow ! would indicate the device in question is not working/functional. Try uninstalling the device and then reboot.

    As to the gamepad, if it's not recognized in any USB port, the device is likely faulty. You can verify by testing on another computer.
