Dell Gx60 doesnt recorgnize hdd and cd rom

If both the HDD and CDRom are on the same cable, try replacing the cable. Check the jumpers to make sure they are set correctly as well. If neither of these work, it's likely your IDE controller (that is where you plug the ribbon cable into your motherboard) is defective. You can try to move it to the other IDE controller to see if that works. If not, you may have to replace the motherboard.... assuming you know the HDD and CDRom drives are good. I hope this helps!

Usb device not recorgnized, one of the USB devices connected has malfunctioned and windows does not recorgnize it.

This is not due to usb device malfunction. Instead what I believe is that your windows system files are corrupted due to some virus infections. If you are already using an antivirus then please update the same and Scan your PC thoroughly.
Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC: 23&pkj=RRJEDTKJBTVISBYWWYP

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

But still you need to repair your Windows through the Windows CD to get this issue rectified.
