Default USB Problems

My USB Drivers are messed up. WIndows actually doesn't load the drivers for any device connected to my computer. Uninstalling the USB Root Hub and adapter drivers and restarting fxes it temporarily, but I'd like a more long term solution. Any help?

It's the actual Root Hub that's the problem. The devices work, but the ports don't. Uninstalling the drivers for the ports seems to work, but then it jst dissapears again later.

If you're using just plain old USB, then I would advise taking this opportunity to get a USB 2 hub. USB 2 is a lot faster, and is helpful in case you get any USB 2 devices.

It's a laptop, and plus it's already USB 2. And replacing the hub probably wouldn't help. I think I have figured it out though: My computer likes thermal shutdowns (*shudder*)*, so whenever that happens and something is hooked up, it ruins the USB Root Hub drivers.

*I've made the computer les prone to thermal shutdowns, and am monitoring the temperatures. I'll shut it down if the temperature rises to around 200F.
