Question about Quadrant MB-AT-5MVP3 Motherboard

1 Answer

USB PORTS my girlfriend had a computer built for her and she didnt realize that the usb ports never worked. I put a new usb card in the computer those didnt work either. The usb ports are hardwired into the mother board. I have checked the bios and the usb is turned on. Do I need to change anything else in the bios? Any suggestions on what may be the problem and how i can fix it?

OMG, ANOTHER HORROR STORY OF CUSTOM BUILT COMPUTERS! THE THINGS PEOPLE DO WITH THESE COMPUTERS, THEY SHOULD HAVE TO WORK ON THEM. I'M REALLY SORRY YOU'RE HAVING PROBLEMS, AND NOT KNOWING THE COMPUTER MAKE I'M GOING TO SUGGEST TRYING SOMETHING THAT MIGHT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. YOU SAY THE USB PORTS WERE HARDWIRED TO THE MOTHERBOARD AND THEY ARE ON. THIS MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM. HAVE YOU TRIED TO TURN THEM OFF AND THEN INSTALL THE USB CARD AND REBOOT? SEE IF THE COMPUTER WILL RECOGNIZE THE NEW USB CARD IN THE SLOT INSTEAD. THIS MIGHT DO THE TRICK. HAVING THE HARDWIRED USB TURNED ON WOULD CAUSE A CONFLICT WITH TRYING TO INSTALL ANOTHER USB CARD. ALSO, HAVE YOU TRIED USING A USB MINI-HUB INSTEAD? POSSIBLY THE MINI HUB MIGHT BE AN EASIER SOLUTION, SINCE THEY SELDOM NEED ANY SOFTWARE ETC. TO FUNCTION. I HOPE THIS GIVES YOU A COUPLE OF IDEAS TO TRY AND POSSIBLY SOLVE THIS STICKY PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP JUST REPLY TO:

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x

Following a recent crash my computer cannot display a picture on the monitor. I've checked the monitor with my girlfriends laptop and it works. i've also checked the VGA cable. Both work fine. How ever the...


Try to remove the graphics card and then plug the monitor into the onboard VGA port. Also, when you say you tried the RAM, did you switch RAM slots or put in a known working one?

Doesn't work.....no laser light appears on the bottom of the mouse. Nothing happens when I hit the "connect" button.


It sounds like these is either a problem with the USB port on the motherboard or with the mouse itself.

Assuming that if a wireless mouse: the batteries are new, the device is actually turned on and the transmitter has been removed from the mouse and plugged into the the USB port and it still does not work, it should be tried on all the other USB ports of the computer. If none work, try on another computer.

This will help determine if the mouse or the computer is the problem. If the mouse does not work on other ports or on the other computer, a defective mouse is likely. If it does work in a different USB port of the original computer, the first USB port is suspect.

If it only works on a different computer, the problem my lie in the setup or BIOS page of the computer. Look for a setting for USB ports. Enable the ports if disabled, and try again. If still no luck, there is some other issue at the motherboard level. Unless fairly new and under warranty, it will probably not be worth trying to fix the problem, when a $20 USB expansion card could be purchased and installed to provide USB connectivity needed.

You could also try connecting a different USB device (if available) to test the USB port. A USB webcam, hard drive, mechanical mouse, etc. are all good choices to test the port. You should indicate or cover any ports that are found to be defective.

I hope this helped and good luck!

I put a sd memory card from my camera in my computer. the computer hasnt uploaded the pictures or done anything.


Hi,
I guess you have a built in card reader? Is there any chance your camera SD card is SDHC? Some card readers including built in types and those that you connect to a USB port have trouble with the later and faster generation SDHC cards but are happy with plain old SD cards.
If you are using an external card reader, does it work in another computer? If it does work, then the problem is with your computer.
If you have a built in reader, can you borrow someones external card reader that you know and does work with SD and SDHC cards?
Can you try an older SD card in your current setup? If that works OK then it's the issue with SDHC that is your problem.
Easily fixed by buying yourself a $10-20 external card reader
Cheers,
Steve

Usb port don´t work, if you connect this says "no se reconoce dispositivo usb" but sometimes this work perfectly


it happened probably due to a virus. Has you scan your computer with anti virus. I suggest you use the Kaspersky virus remover tools. If the problem on your usb ports are still repeated, it is possible that you put things like USB cable, pen drive or the like that is put into the usb port or usb you probably can not be fully functional.ways to overcome this problem is much better to install a USB card to pci slot on your motherboard.

I am using an older PC with a ASUS CUSL2 AGP Pro/4X Motherboard as a intra-offfice server devise. I'd like to add USB 2.o or change out the 2 rear USB prots to 2.0. I've tried doing this witha USB 2.0 PCI...


You have two options

One is to replace the whole motherboard but that would probably also entail new ram, cpu, cooler, graphics card, even maybe a new PSU.

Two is to fit a pci usb 2.0 card.

You said you did TWO but it didnt work. I am not sure why without more details but if you are using windoes 95 or less than that would be a major problem.

Only the later windows 98 and above can really make full use of USB 2.0 and even with 98 and win ME you would need to make sure he correct drivers were installed too.

No power to USB ports, no video output


Make sure you have connected the USB's on right spot on the motherboard.

It's few places where it fits, so just try it out.

yess use the ports in the back of the computer I had the same problem with my mouse before which was also usb port connection. The reason why I say to hook it up to the back usb ports is that it is built onto the motherboard and therefore it would get recognized alot quicker if you put it there if you find that whatever you have hooked up dont have alot of usb ports buy yourself a usb hub i bought one for 2.00 it does the trick when you are limited to usb connections
