    I removed these drivers from their original directory to another folder in My Documents:

    usbstor.sys
    usbport.sys
    usbstor.inf
    usbport.inf
    usb.inf
    usb.pnf
    usbstor.pnf
    usbport.pnf

    I went to Device Manager and uninstalled all USB Root Hubs. After rebooting the XP PC, thinking the drivers would be recreated, the USB Root Hub, keyboard and mouse are not installed.

    Now the XP PC is asking for the location of the drivers to install the USB Root Hub. I can't choose the folder's location in My Documents because the keyboard and mouse don't work.

    I downloaded the exact same drivers from the internet which should work on our Windows XP Professional SP2 32-bit PC.

    I burned the downloaded drivers to a cd using another PC. Inserted it into the XP PC and it almost worked. Installation was interrupted because the drivers are not verified by Microsoft. It's asking me to Continue Anyway or STOP Installation. I can't choose Continue Anyway because the mouse don't work.

    Where can I get the same drivers only verified? Help me please. Thanks.

      I removed the originals because the computer didn't recognize my Nokia 5130 XpressMusic in USB mass memory mode. It said the device has malfunctioned. It worked fine before. So I tried to remedy that. How do I reinstall the motherboard chipset drivers?

        If it's an Intel MBoard you're on the right track...if it's an intel Chipset go to the MBoard manuf. site instead...they are different.

          I didn't suggest try both...that may be a waste of time...
          I stated if it's not an intel MBoard then get them directly from the MBoard manuf. site...
          Sorry if this was unclear.

            Ok, I understand now. But how do I reinstall the chipset drivers if the mouse and keyboard don't work? That's the whole problem.

            They may function in safemode as that loads minimal Windows default drivers...
            If not you may need a PS2 style keyboard and mouse.

              Here are the ps2 ports on a desktop.


              Keyboard is purple, mouse is green.
              Not all use the color codes.

                    Well i was going to suggest a Repair Install of XP...but you need a MS XP CD to do so...and the versions have to match...
                    See if you can borrow one on your end.

                      What is the model number? Motherboards without PS/2 ports will accept a USB keyboard. Start with just the keyboard and NO other USB things. The keyboard lights swill flash and you can get into the BIOS. If there is not keyboard found, the BIOS should halt with an error message.

                      Patio, your are right. He will have to install windows again to get the default drivers back.

                      If there is data he wants to save, now is the time to borrow a "Live" CD  from a friend and use it to make a backup of his data
                      Or if he has another working PC,  or another hard drive, he can save his stuff and install XP again.

                      This you tube video about using EASUS might help. Sort of.

                      Are you plugging this directly into a USB port on the computer or through an external hub?

                      Some devices, like phones and external hard drives, are a bit demanding for power and will cause this error when they're plugged into a hub or a group of ports that already have significant pull from them. Try unplugging as many unnecessary devices as you can, then plugging in the phone.

                      From my experience, Nokia phones are notoriously finicky when doing this.

                        I'm plugging it in the computer's own usb ports. No external hubs.

                        You 've mentioned on your first post that they were moved to My Documents, have you tried using a Linux live disc to access the moved files back to their original directory?

                          So far I haven't gotten hold of any CDs yet to fix the computer.

                            Hi there. My parents took the computer in for repairs and they are stunned by this problem. Unfortunately they don't give out cds. It just shows how stupid they really are. I was wondering if I could suggest to them to do a repair install. My question to you is: will the keyboard and mouse work during the repairing process?

                            If they know what they are doing...yes.
                            However them stating they have a lack of CD's tells me you may want to get an opinion of another shop...

                            You 've mentioned on your first post that they were moved to My Documents, have you tried using a Linux live disc to access the moved files back to their original directory?
                            Wondering if this was done or its not possible to relocate back the moved files...

                              Its common for the MB OEM to have several download sites based on region. Who made your MB?

                                I think it was made by Intel.

                                  Our computer was taken to another repair shop and they did a Windows Drivers Repair. Now the computer is fixed and all our data was retained. Everything is working correctly. I won't be making the same mistake twice. Thank you for all your help, everybody. Keep well everyone.
