Fairly simple problem that i can't solve. I was playing FIFA 14 when my pc crashed. I restarted and plugged in my usb gamepad however a warning popped up saying USB device not recognised. Usually this resolved by unplugging the device and plugging it into another usb port. But this didn't work for me. I also tried going to device manager and uninstalling everything under USB controllers and reinstalling as suggested on the windows website but to no avail it still won't work. I even bought a new usb gamepad and that comes up with the same problem when plugged in.
I know my usb ports work because i've tried other devices and usb sticks on every single port and they all work fine. The devices can't both be faulty can they? Especially the new one i just bought so what could be the problem?? Btw the gamepads i have are just generic ones. But that hasn't been a problem in the past. You just plug n play like many other usb devices.
