USB Controller Issues

Specs: Windows XP
So, I accidentally uninstalled my USB controllers from Device Manager before remembering that my computer doesn't have any PS/2 ports. What that means, is that now when I start up my computer, my mouse and keyboard work fine until Windows starts, when it suddenly decides that it no longer recognizes them. I know that it should automatically reinstall the USB Controllers, but instead the found new hardware window pops up. However, since the USB doesn't work, I've got a bit of a catch-22 since I can't click the button to have it search for the driver that will re-install the USB drivers. However, I am able to access the DOS prompt. As such, I was wondering if there was any way to re-install the USB Controller from the DOS prompt. Conversely, if there are any other suggestions, I am very open to them.

Hmmm, got a serial port (and mouse)? I'd imagine not, since it doesn't have PS/2's.

Great thing about new computers. No legacy ports, no floppy, nothing that used to make "sense"...

Nope, just USB. USB be may be better, but it's a pain when you don't have the serial port to fall back on.
