    Hi,

    I just reinstalled the operating system for my laptop. For some unknown reason, its "1 key recover" installation cannot complete (I tried several times). Anyway I still can log in and it looks not so bad. So I tried to install all drivers for devices with yellow mark until everything looks ok. After I plugged in a usb stick, I can hear the voice which means system found it. But I just cannot see the storage. In device manager, the new device was listed with a yellow mark. Asking windows to find driver can solve this problem easily. But the annoying thing is for every USB devices, I have to manually install driver. And some device seems not as good as before. I have tried to install the latest usb 2.0 drivers.Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Best Regards,
    Leon

    Hiya Leonwood.

    Until the last line, I was thinking you`d installed the basic 1.1 drivers ... Make sure you`ve downloaded the correct USB2 drivers for your particular make & model number. I`ve had drivers run through the motions of installation on-screen but not actually installed anything as they were the wrong ones for the mobo.

    If you`re running an Intel CPU, make sure you run the .inf utility before installing the other drivers, that tells the system what it`s playing with.

    Thank you. I just downloaded a general USB2.0 driver. I will try to find the drivers for my model.
