I have a Gateway P-7811FX running Windows Vista Home Premium x64. Just today, windows started acting weird. Everything I plugged in got a driver installation failure message. I forget what I was doing, I think I was updating a driver, and windows asked me to run a chkdisk. I scheduled one for the next boot and it went through a long check/delete process. After that was finished, I checked in device manager and every network controller, audio device, and all USB controllers had the yellow triangle and exclamation point signifying a driver issue. I tried updating drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the devices, running a virus scan, system file checker, system restore, all of the above in safe mode, etc. All system restores and driver updates/re-installations fail. Could anyone help? Thanks!

Never mind.

I solved the problem.

I was trying to use my PS3 controller with PCSX2, so I installed lubusb32. It turns out it messed up the drivers with a registry key (UpperFilter or LowerFilter) for each driver that caused problems. I uninstalled it and it works fine now.

So remember: IF YOU HAVE libusb AND YOU HAVE DRIVER ISSUES, THIS IS A LIKELY CAUSE.
