After plugging in an Apple Keyboard on a Win XP running PC, all USB ports stopped functioning.
Steps that failed: Updating drivers Rollback drivers Uninstalling the USB Controller drivers and restarting the PC Reinstalling drivers from the web, WINDOWS driver cache, i386, WINDOWS startup CD, .. Disabling and reanabling USB in BIOS Reinstalling SP3 System restore
Everytime I start up the PC, WINDOWS prompts me to reinstall USB drivers, but they cannot be located...
I really would like to avoid having to do a clean reinstall...
I was wondering if altering the registery could help, but I cannot figure out what. PS: setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\USB to 1 did not help either
Thanks for helping,
