are you updating to the 32bit versions on your laptop? you cant use the 64bit drivers on the 32bit. just a thought....

Maybe if you could provide some more detail, what do you mean by your usb, what kind of device are you attaching, you should check the device's website for updated drivers and yes you cannot use 32bit drivers on a 64 bit system so doublcheck youre not trying this move.
