Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard
The board was working fine for 2 years but slowly I was noticing my 4 USB drives were taking more time to start moving files from one USB drive to another or to my IDE drives. Once they started file transfers, it works ok but you have to wait a while. Sometimes I would get a message that Explorer needs to shut down and I had to open up all my drives again. This went on for a while. Now, I can't use any of my USB drives. They are not recognizable. Neither is my thumb drive. All my drives work fine on my other computer. Everything else on the board works ok. There are no yellow exclamation marks in Devive Manager. All the drivers are there. There's not much in Manage to re-start the USB operation in case it got changed by some cause. The settings in Manage under USB are the same settings as in my other computer. I don't see anything else to do but to buy a new board.
If this were a driver issue you would have the exclamation marks you already checked for in Device Manager. USB connectors supply a voltage out to the usb devices as well as signals in and out so the regulator components may have failed for that voltage. You can buy a PCI usb card if you have a spare PCI slot if you don't want to change the motherboard yet but don't just buy a usb front panel card as it uses the same connector as the existing usb connectors use. 2 years later there are more features that you might find useful and if there are budget considerations you could find another motherboard that accepts the same cpu, RAM and drives. There were issues of substandard capacitors being sold to motherboard manufacturers a few years ago that would cause this gradual deterioration as well as accumulated dust that acts like a thermal blanket on components. ~Steve Medley
