Have you checked the Device Manager (click on Start, click on Control Panel, click on System, click on Hardware, click on Device Manager).

I went in there....but what am I looking for? I plugged in a 512 sandisk cruzer when i was on that page, and it reset (obviously recognizing it). the green light went on in the device (for a split second). i go to 'my computer' to look for the drive. not there. no printers, drives, or anything are working on this computer all of the sudden. i have no clue. it's not registering.
what to do?

Click on the + sign next to Universal Serial Bus controllers. If you see an exclamation mark anywhere, right click on it and select 'enable'.

nope, no marks at all down there. damn. it will even charge my ipod shuffle, but itunes wont recognize it (neither will "my computer").
