Toshiba Satellite USB ports not working in XP Pro

I have a Toshiba Satellite A65-S1062 notebook. Model No. PSA60U-01W015. It came with XP Home, I upgraded it to XP Pro. It is only two months old. The USB ports worked prior to the upgrade, they have not worked since the upgrade. There are no errors in Device Manager, the other ports I've used on the system work fine, mainly the LAN port. Device Manager lists Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller, Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller twice and USB Root Hub twice. The Device Manager does say that "No Drivers are Installed" for any of these devices. I searched Toshiba's support site for the unit and was unable to locate the driver. The driver did not install from the hard drive either. Any assistance on this would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Have you installed service pack 1 with the USB patches?

I ran Windows update and I was missing some pre-Service Pack 2 updates, I have not installed Service Pack 2 and don't plan to, until this is resolved. The USB device propoerties in Device Manager now report that "The Device is working properly" for the USB HOst Controller and the Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller. However, a known good USB memory stick will not identify when plugged into the USB port.

In the list of 40 relavant files on that drivers link, I did not see anything related to USB. Please let me know which of these files I need to try. Thanks.

You should at least apply SP1 (NOT SP2): http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822603

The steps at the link provided by Iggy79 at 12:06PM PDT were exactly what it took to resolve the problem. The USB is working fine, good job, way to research it, I know that wasn't easy to find as I had looked for that on Toshiba's site.
