Networking and USB Drivers stop working after reboot

I have a HP Pavilion Laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.  Recently, when I restart my computer my networking would not work.  I checked in Device Manager and the devices for the Wireless and Wired Networking, and all USB devices have a yellow exclamation.  If I try to reinstall the driver/Update Driver, it tells me the driver is up to date.  If I uninstall the device and rescan the devices are installed properly and everything starts working again.

When I do that, W7 does pick it back up and it works, but when I restart again, the devices stop working and I have to uninstall and reinstall again each time.  It is all the network connections and USB controllers.

I think you should try running W7 x32 just to see  if this behavior occur there.
You van also perhaps have a try with XP.If situation persist then
 there is probably something wrong with the motherboard.
You should then take your laptop to vendor (if it is still covered by a guarantee)
and demand a replace.

I have been running w7 for a year, throughout beta,rc, and final release.  I haven't had an issue until just recently.  I'm not willing to reinstall different os on it at this time.  Any other ideas?

I was having this problem on two of my computer as well.  I just uninstalled all the updates 01/27/2010, removed the problem devices and rebooted.  The problem went way!!!
