    No USB Drivers are working on 8.1


    Recently, all USB devices stopped working on my laptop. Devices are powered but not working. Mice, drives, keyboards, and all other devices. For example, when I plug a mouse in, it is identified correctly in device manager, but with a yellow exclamation mark by it. Also, several identical devices appear in DM, but they are hidden. Same with my Passport backup drive. When I boot up in safe mode however, I can use my mouse/keyboard. I'm in desperate need of a fix here before I revert back to Win7! Any ideas?

    Hi,

    It would be nice if you could provide more information about your laptop and its specifications in order for you to get much more decent help.
