Hello there, sorry in advance if this belongs to another section such as External Hardware or Windows 7.

 

I've been having issues with my USB drivers since I tried updating my drivers on my most recent Win7 reinstall (which is still pretty old).

 

Everything works fine and the system is surprisingly healthy and fast, but I have the following problems:

  • I have 4 frontal USB ports plus Mic & Headphones ports: The 2 USB ports on the left work, the Mic & Headphones ports do NOT work, the 2 USB ports on the right do NOT work.
     
  • I get an instant BSOD whenever I plug in specific USB hardwares. Considering I just purchased a rather expensive one, this is proving to be frustrating. Here's a list of everything I have plugged in so far and the results:
    USB Mouse: OK
    USB Keyboard: OK
    USB Wi-Fi Adapter: OK
    Various USB Drives (1 to 16gbs): OK
    Internet Dongle: BSOD
    External HDD: OK
    Playstation Joypad-to-USB Adapter: OK
    USB Audio Interface: Not Recognized, but Deactivating and Activating it again from the Device Manager results in a BSOD
     
  • I am unable to put my PC into Sleep Mode. It successfully goes into Sleep Mode, but as soon as I resume activities, I am greeted with a BSOD.

I honestly don't know how to fix this, and I don't want to do further damage, since I'm not sure if overwriting drivers is even a thing (in the case that this is all due to wrong drivers, as I might have just screwed that up).

 

Can anyone help out with this? If possible, I would really really want to try and avoid formatting, but if it comes to that I get it.

There are no OS partition backups on external media?  Reason for asking:  some time ago, my Windows 7 suddenly developed a similar ports problem; I had to restore an earlier OS partition image, which fortunately "pre-dated" the ports problem.  I never did find out why the ports problem happened.

Well, a couple of second best ideas...first, make a full image of your OS and Data partition onto external media of your choosing.

Then, experiment with a few USB fix-it utilities (promising to help fix USB ports) out on The 'Net; or, fresh install your Windows and test the ports. If a fresh install fixes the ports problem, then, you have another giant fork in the road, beginning with reinstalling all 3rd party programs, reconfiguring, retweaking, and so on.  If one or more USB fix-it utilities indeed fix the ports, then you make a brand new OS partition full image onto external media.

So, no matter what, I need a fresh Windows install?

That's not exactly what I posted.  Let me post a snippit with slight adjustments:

"...first, make a full image of your OS and Data partition onto external media of your choosing (ok, two backup images).

Then, experiment with a few USB fix-it utilities (promising to help fix USB ports) out on The 'Net;

or,

fresh install your Windows and test the ports. If a fresh install fixes the ports problem...

After you are all done, either way, then, make another OS & Data partitions backup onto external media.

Sorry, I misread!

 

I will try and see what the results are.

 

In the meantime, I managed to get my Audio Interface to work by reinstalling the same drivers, for some reason... but the rest of the problems remain.
