Laptop doesn't monitor ports anymore

I've just helped my laptop (running XP Pro) to recover from BSoDs
caused by a faulty driver. There are still some problems. The laptop
doesn't respond when I insert my USB memory unit, though it does
recognize it if the unit is inserted when I start (or restart)
WIndows. Also, the system tray icon for safe removal is gone.
Similarly, there is no response when I insert my 3Com WLAN PC Card.
No lights, no connection.

What should I do?

Go to Start/Run, and type DEVMGMT.MSC , highlight the USB Hub device(s), Action menu, "Uninstall", then restart Windows, to find the
device drivers again automatically.
