    I will assume that you are using Win7.
    Have you tried to uninstall iTunes and re-install it, latest version 10.1.x. If this doesn't fix it, try the plan below. Un-installing should un-install the drivers from Windows and every thing will be ok when you re-install iTunes. However, sometimes, the drivers don't get un-installed properly. So you may have to try the following. Manually un-installing them and let iTunes install them again.

    Go the "START" icon (bottom left corner, blue circle with Microsoft flag on it), in the search box type "Device Manager", select it from the list above. In "Device Manager", look for "Portable Devices", click on it and you should see the "Apple iPad" listed ( with the iPad plugged in ). Right click on that entry and tell it to uninstall, let it finish uninstalling the iPad. Now go down in the "Device Manager" to the entry for "Universal Serial Bus controllers", click on that. Look for "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver", right click on that and tell it to Uninstall. Unplug the iPad and reboot the computer. When it is finished coming up, plug in the iPad, you should see a pop-up on the Task Bar saying that it is installing the device driver for the iPad. If it doesn't you may need to re-install iTunes again, and try again.

    I am also assuming that the drivers are corrupt, because it's not showing the serial number or model number, but seems to know something is plugged in, it just doesn't know what.
