    First, sorry for my bad english. Ok now, I have lose control of my computer due to USB ports stop working after windows startup, means I cant control both my mouse and keyboard to solve any problems inside the computer. But I got another HDD (the old one) which is doesnt have any problem with the USB. So Im thinking if I could install a driver through the command prompt in system recovery option by using USB pendrive (accessable before windows startup). So I can download all the missing file for the usb problem from the old HDD and use it to the new HDD by using the system recovery option. Please help me!

    I realize that but if you follow booting with the disk and following those directions to start command prompt you can run the sfc/ scannow option to replace or repair system files.It might replace any missing/corrupted usb drivers.So what operating system?That's why I told you to ignore the not booting part of the link as it doesn't apply but the directions still work for your situation.Do you even know where or what you would be copying from the other hard drive?

    I downloaded a new usb driver from the asus website and try to use this code in cmd in the system recovery,

    dism /image:c:\ /add-driver /Driver:X:\ /recurse

    "driver X" is the USB flash that I used to save the driver and use it on the command prompt.

    sfc /scannow doesnt work, it said restart and run sfc again but nothing happen.

    Something else is wrong. Any of the USB ports should be working with just the default Microsoft drivers.

    What was being done prior to the USB ports not functioning after Windows starts?

    Still able to boot from the installation media? Try a recovery point from when your ports were still working.

    Do you know what operating system you are using?

    Installation media: The disc the operating system was installed with

    What is the difference between the old drive and the new one? The only difference the Samsung USB driver that was installed?

    From the sounds of it, your issue is beyond my ability. There are far more knowledgeable people here than myself.

    EDIT:

    What about booting into safe mode? Able to uninstall the Samsung driver then?

    Installation media is whatever you used to install 7 dvd,usb whatever.At this point save whatever you can/need to and reinstall.

    Yep, the samsung driver. No chance of getting usb working in safe mode.

    EDIT : guys, now my cmd under system rcovry is beginning its system scan, after I added some text into sfc/ scannow which are, /offbootdir and /offwindir.
    But its been a couple of minutes for the scan. Is it normal?

    UPDATE : still doesnt solve the issue

    Aside from cloning the old drive to the new drive, the only option I am aware of is to do a fresh new installation of Windows 7, like was mentioned earlier.

    I have never had to clone a drive so cannot offer any help there. Someone else will need to provide assistance.
