Try to update the drivers from device manager it ll search for the drivers online and may be it might be able to update the drivers by itself ...
And if u have the drivers then:-
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. 2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager. 3. For each device, use the following steps to verify that it is using a Windows XP-compatible driver.NOTE: To narrow down the search, begin with devices that have been disabled. A disabled device has its icon overlaid with a red X.

a. Double-click the device name to open the device Properties dialog box, and then click the Driver tab. b. Examine the driver version. All Windows XP drivers should be version 5.1.2600 or later. c. If you are not sure about the displayed version, examine the driver date. Drivers created before the year 2001 may not be compatible with Windows XP. 4. After you identify an outdated device driver that may be causing the problem, follow these steps to update the driver: a. Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM drive. If Setup starts automatically, quit it. b. In the device Properties dialog box, click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. c. Click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next. d. Click to select the Include this location in the search box, and then type your CD-ROM drive letter in the space below. For example, type D:. e. Click Next. f. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish updating the driver. 5. Restart your computer if prompted.

COMMUNICATION NOT AVAILABLE LEXMARK X1150


Hi

This kind of issue might occur due to many reasons, like:

the previous installation files creating a glitch for new software.
PORT settings

Resolution:
goto devicemanager by following:
start->run->devmgmt.msc (type in the box)
check if you have printers with exclamation mark or any special symbol showing a problem with the device.
try updating the drivers,
a more feasible solution could be removing the usb composite device entries from the tree under usb section but this should be done only by a skilled technician.

Acer Aspire 5050-5430 USB ports stopped working


Hi,
I hope i can help resolve your problem for you.
this may be a problem relating to your system device driver files.
Try This:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager. at the bottom of the page you will see USB.
If you have any yellow symbols ( exclamation Marks ) then the driver has been corrupted, or installed incorrectly.
if you have a system restore disk. this may solve the problem for you. or recovery cd.
If you require further assistance, please ask.

Mike @ compurepair.
