USB Problem in XP home SP2

I recently had a usb game controller fail on me, and when it did all of my usb ports quit working.
an error message popped up that said that all the data in a peticular file was lost, I uninstalled the usb drivers and reinstalled them to no effect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thank you.

Did you un-install

In reply to: USB Problem in XP home SP2

everything in the device manager under USB Controllers?

Starting at the bottom and working your way to the top?

Un-install the USB hosts first, then the USB Controllers,

Restart your computer. Windows will find them again.

If a hardware failure has occurred

You might get by with an add in card. Perhaps you can find one that has a header allowing front port connection as well.
