Uninstall and reinstall the defective devices but you also need to remove entries from the registry the easiest way is to use the free Nirsoft program USBDeveiw

Laptop or desktop? Make and Model? Think first thing you are going to have to sort out is the CPU fan problem.

Are you sure that the fan is blowing the correct way?

Fan Directions:

Case Fans: Draw in at the front. Expel air at the back.

CPU & GPU Fans: Draw air through the Heatsink Fins and up through the fan, taking the hot air away.

Be aware: Some GPUs, which have fans and heatsinks enclosed in a Case, can suffer from the Heatsink Fins being blocked with dust, invisible underneath the casing. Blowing air in the opposite direction to the fan's pull, sometimes works, otherwise it would be necessary to remove the casing
