    Hi everyone, wondering if I could get some help here. Earlier today I was in the middle of streaming a game when my external streaming device froze. At this point my webcam is fine. So I try to restart the streaming device and it doesn't work, then when I restart my computer, none of my USB devices worked except my mic, wifi adapter, and mouse. Restarted again and now only my streaming device and webcam aren't working. They both light up as if they're going to work, and then don't. In my device manager the streaming device isn't even showing up (except in audio devices, where it's saying there's a problem), but the webcam is and it's saying there's no problems at all. I've uninstalled drivers, plugged into different USB slots, rebooted, I really can't figure out what the issue is. If anyone has any suggestions, please help! Thanks! Running Windows 7.

    A good first fix attempt might be to do a system restore to a point prior to the issue. If something crashed or became corrupted that might fix it. If system restore from within windows fails try to do it from safe mode. Other than that reinstalling the drivers that correspond to the devices might be helpful.
