    First of all, run the Hardware and Device Troubleshooter. For same,"Start" button and click on "Control Panel". In the search box at the top,type "Troubleshooter" and then click on "Troubleshooting". Now under "Hardware and Sound",click on "Configure a Device". It can ask you for the Administrator password. If it does so,provide the same. If it doesn't fix your issue then uninstall the driver for USB host controller and restart your computer. Let windows to install the generic drivers on its own. To do the same,navigate to "Start">>Device Manager>>USB [Universal Serial bus] host controller. Right click on it and select "Uninstall".Once done,restart your computer. Windows 7 will automatically install the same driver without any issue.Enjoy.

    this message means your USB is failed in some manner. this is due to curroption in loaded drivers. if your system is laptop unplug the power cable and remove all the usb devices. shutdown the laptop and remove the battery... leave it for few mins and insert your battey.
    Now restart your system.
    it should work fine now.

    what we have done is just flushed all the cache memory...

    happy to assist you
