    Alright, so for a few months now I have a problem where after I reboot, almost none of my USB work just the ones two in the back. So I seen when i went into Device Manager i would see a yellow exclamation mark, So i would uninstall the drives and then rescan for hardware change and it will work once again. I would reboot it again same issue. I been having to leave my pc on for weeks at a time cause i dont want to go thru the hassel.

    Where should i start to T/S i have changed the plug on the M/B and same issue. Uninstalled all the usb drives and rebooted pc same issue in Safe Mode same. All drivers are up-to-date So im stuck in a ditch even

    in the device manager click on view at the top and in the dropdown
    show hidden devices
    then uninstall all listed usb items
    turn the computer off
    unplug usb plugs
    reboot twice
    replug in the usb plugs

    don't miss an entry or it will not work

    Can you relate the onset of the problem to the installation or removal or hardware or software; of an update to W7 or your antimalware or another program?

    Do you have a printer or other device that connects by usb? If so, does the printer or other device have a card reader?

    If so, uninstall that printer / other device.

    edit: You might want disconnect the connection from the front of the computer to the motherboard after you uninstall all 300 entries.

    Create a system restore point

    Check with MSI, the motherboard manufacturer for advice.

    Quick answer.
    Most likely, YUP!
