  • Well i think the USB drivers is corrupted so do the following steps.. remove all the USB device from the sys and make sure none of the USB device is connected now go to device manager and uninstall all the USB drivers which is listed under Universal Serial Bus Controllers and then download the following softwares and install and then restart your sys and check weather every thing is working fine.
