Install the Chipset drivers and it should also solve the usb problem. Then reboot. After that look to see what else is missing.
To identify most hardware you can run Everest. http://www.lavalys.com/products.php?ps=UE&lang=en&

That's what i was saying. Run the program I listed and it will identify the chipset so that I can help find the drivers.
Here's the chipset and graphics drivers.
Install the chipset and reboot before installing any other drivers. It should get the usb ports working also.

Go to device manager> click the item you want> then right click it> choose up date driver> choose the online option. (Helpful hint ......... Ethernet drivers and video drivers change often, sometimes "windows updates" is not current, use this to check for new drivers or bookmark your video and ethernet drivers website. Do a review of all drivers once a year using this method, to stay current.)
eSupport has a free scan (warning they will spam you after this scan. I told you so .....):
Use the information they provide to get the correct driver online. This requires some searching but will sometimes help you find what you need. You'll need the specifications first. This scan and device manager provide the specifications for those searches.
I'm guessing your PC's old. This might help:
It's just a matter of time before some of your hardware breaks and like the drivers, you may not find what you need. It's time for a new PC.
