Enter the BIOS/CMOS by hitting the appropriate key, during the Power On Self Test. Delete or F12.
Once in the BIOS/CMOS find the option to enable USB support for both 1.1 and 2.0 USB versions. Also enable the option for USB keyboard/Mouse support!
This should sort the problem out!

You'll need to enter the bios menu. As soon as you hear a single beep press the Delete key on you're keyboard. See the top of page 27.
Open Advanced Chipset Features than find and open VIA OnChip PCI Device, Page 39
Set VIA-3058 AC97 Audio to [Enable]. Save you're changes and exit the bios. When your system restarts you should have audio.
This may be because the version of Windows XP install disk that you're using doesn't support SATA. You'll need either a driver disc or a newer XP install disc which has SATA support. You could try enabling legacy support in the bios to enable emulation which the operating system may understand.
Please visit this site and select which Version of Windows you are using in the "Please Choose OS" drop-down menu at the bottom. This will bring you to the drivers page for the motherboard that you posted your question under.
Yes, your M2V board is USB 2.0 complaint.
How do know if your PC has USB 2.0?
You can identify whether your PC has Hi-Speed USB or relatively easy. Open controlpanel, open System. Click the Hardware tab & Click Device Manager. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Click the + sign to expand. There should be an "Enhanced" USB host controller present. Windows 98 systems may use a different name, because Hi-Speed USB drivers in this operating systems are not provided directly from Microsoft, (Windows ME, 2000 and XP) get their drivers through (Windows Update). There should also be two "standard" version USB host controllers present as well. They are embedded in the USB chip which routes the differing USB speeds accordingly without user intervention. nVidia (shows as "Standard" controller) & not enhanced but are still USB 2.0
You need to enter your bios. How to enter your bios?
When you turn on your Pc press the delete key every 2 or 3 seconds. Your system will load the bios. Use your manual & go to pg. 4-16 section 4.4.2. Make sure you have Enabled USB 1.1 & enable USB 2.0. Enable Legacy USB support & set USB 2.0 Controller Mode to HiSpeed. Bios EHCI Hand-off, set to Enable
Save & Exit your bios. When your system has finished loading run Windows Update. This will update your USB driver to 2.0
How fast is USB 2.0? USB 2.0 has a raw data rate at 480Mbps.
If you have more question just ask!
The capacity that a motherboard can support is designated by the BIOS.... a few years ago when HDDs started to get big, there was an issue in supporting disks above 137GB as this exhausted the old HDD addressing system..(BIOS), to rectify this the BIOS code was re-written to support 48bit LBA (Logical block addresses) so as long as you have up to date BIOS for this motherboard, it should be alright.
you should be able to install any capacity available on IDE as long as you have updated the BIOS to the latest version (check the Giga byte website to download this)
If you wish to upgrade your PC further you can get a SATA/PATA adapter, or you can get a PCI SATA, IDE or SCSI controller card. Effectively there are very few limitations to the number of disks nowadays.
