Hi guys. Recently, I was installing my webcam on my computer and when I plugged in my webcam my computer froze. So I restarted and went to device manager and found out that ALi PCI to USB Open Host Controller had a ' ! ' beside it. There were 3 ALi PCI to USB Open Host Controller names and all of them had a ! beside them. I tried updating the drivers but doesn't work. My computer won't boot either because of the problem. So I'm running in safe mode. So what should I do?

ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED! :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:

I would remove the USB controller drivers in safe mode...reboot and see if they install anew.

The drivers may be damaged, in which case they may not be able to be booted out by a new install on top.

Well since I had figured out that my drivers weren't corrupt and reinstalling drive or newer ones didn't help. So I decided to detach the ALI PCI card from the PCI slot in the computer by opening the case. I opened the case,took it out of the slot, left like that for 10 minutes and attached the PCI card back into the slot and started my computer. And the problem was fixed. But after booting there was no problem but even after I had to restart once so the windows completely recognizes all the hardware and install the fresh drivers for them. And all of it was back! And I was finally able to install my webcam as well. :thumbsup: :trumpet:



HOPE THIS HELPS! :flowers:
