Problem with generic drivers for USB in Windows 2008 R2.

Hi.

I got the server after different support company. After few weeks of fighting I resolved most of the issues. I had problem with ISS and graphic drivers.

However I am stuck with one. I am not able to connect external USB hard drive. I tried a few solution without success.

I have attached some screenshots.

i see you have an unknown device in device manager - is that the usb drive you connected?
remove it to see if it goes away; if not try loading it's driver with the methods below

if you have  unknown devices in device manager, you can use this procedure to identify them :

1-visit the motherboard manufacturers support site, for downloading drivers
2- use windows update >optional updates to find them

3-Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update> optional drivers, or  use slimdrivers : https://www.slimwareutilities.com/slimdrivers.php

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

1. Right click My computer, and chooses properties.

2. Click the "Advanced" tab, and then click "Environment Variables"

3. Click "New" under the "System Variables"

4. Enter "DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES" (without quotations) in the Variable Name, and set Variable Value to 1.

5. Click OK to apply the change.

6. Enter Device Manager, and choose "View" from the tab and "Click Show Hidden Devices".

7. Please browse the Device Manager to check if there are any problem devices (there will be a yellow "!" next to the item if there is a problem) or hidden device (Which is grey), right click on it and choose uninstall if any.

then reconnect and reinstall.

the system always gives a sound (like ping) when you connect any USB device
for usb external drives, you may not have enough power;  (usb delivers 5V at 0.5 A= 2.5 W MAX) -  so try with a POWERED USB hub
you can choose one from :  http://usb-hub-review.toptenreviews.com/
