Acer Aspire 5101 AWLMi

Error Message Reads:

USB Device Not recognized

One of the USB devices to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it.

I have gone to "Divice Manager" and seen three yellow question Marks on th following.

1. Other Devices
a. SM Bus Controller
b. Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

I have reimaged my computer (Do not have the original disks), with a valid Windows XP. I have been to the acer site and downloaded ALL the drivers and Bios and application downloads.

Is one of my hardware given up or can someone offer qualified advice on how to get my USB drives to work, PLEASE.
