    My copy of Windows became corrupt(due in part with my fiddling within the registry and duplicate files - I know!!!). Everything was backed up, so I reinstalled Windows, and started reinstalling device drivers.

    I no longer have the original Drivers Disc so have downloaded the needed drivers. The recommended driver from Dell (and other locations online) for my chipset does not install the USB Controller required for my system. The Device Manager claims - "The drivers for this device are not installed".

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 with an Intel I845GL chipset.

    This problem has occurred previously and I found a different driver which solved the problem but I did not save it to the replacement Driver disc I created.

    Dell website - only available download for my model

    Intel Mobile Chipset

    Release Date: 27/02/2003
    Version: 4.20.1006, A02

    Link to driver: http://ftp.us.dell.com/chipset/R50830.EXE

    ------------

    It installs without issue but the USB controller is not installed.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Tech Support Guy has been fantastic for me in the past.

    Problem Solved - Disable the USB Controller from within the Device Manager and then reinstall the Chipset Driver(link above).

    After restart, the USB controller should be recognised and the annoying yellow exclamation point disappears.

    Through all my web searches, it appears this is a more common problem than I realised, but there was still no fix! Hopefully this will help anyone who has struggled with this issue!

    Actually, you should uninstall the USB controller then restart your computer.
