Question about MSI K8NGM2-L Motherboard

1 Answer

Lost all USB port after restarting my computer.

Hi, I am struggling to fix the issue. Looking in my device manager, USB Host Controller shows as invalid. I have tried every single option: updated the BIOS, update the Nvidia drivers, you name it. Can anyone tell me if there is a solution for this type of problem? I am quite sure it is a driver issue, because when rebooting the computer, all USB ports are powered until windows starts, when the power goes off. I hv a XP Professional (Media Center 2002) SP2. Appreciate any help/info you guys can provide. Cheers,

    Just to be clear, the power goes off only for the USB ports, my computer runs fine except that I have no USB connectivity, which theses days is a big issue...

    Thanks

  • OjBrasil Oct 08, 2007

    I have already done that.

    I also tried buying a USB PCI card and install it, but windows XP is not able to load the drivers for this card either... Major pain in the neck...

    The one thing I hav not tried was your suggestion disabling from Windows... I will try and post the results.

    Thanks for your reply.

Hi OjBrasil, Just a suggestion, but did you try re-setting the bios? Also, this is a rare possibility, but I feel maybe the difference in full-speed and Hi-speed usb might be causing a problem. One more thing you can try before re-setting the bios is to go into the "Integrated Peripherals" section of your bios and disable USB, re-boot and then re-ENABLE it again.. then see what happens. Yet another thing, you can try disabling it in Windows and re-enabling it again to see if that produces any results. Can't think of anything else right now, but do keep us updated...

If your Device Manager shows an ENHANCED USB Host Controller, the system has High Speed USB (USB 2.0) capability.

Types of High Speed USB (USB 2.0) Host Controllers

· Intel Enhanced

· SiS Enhanced

· VIA Enhanced

· ALi Enhanced

· Standard Enhanced

· NEC Enhanced

The system shown has onboard Intel High Speed USB (USB 2.0) with an NEC High Speed USB (USB 2.0) PCI card installed.

The key word is ENHANCED. If you have an ENHANCED USB Host Controller then you have High Speed USB (USB 2.0)

All other types are USB v.1.1


hope this helps

Will not work in usb 2.0 but will work in usb 1.0


Connect the Player to the USB 2.0 port on the Comptuer then open the Device Manager and expand the "universal serial bus controllers" category.
Under the serial bus controller category, check if there is any exclamation mark visible. If there is any then right click on it and select Uninstall. Restart the Computer after uninstalling the device with exclamation mark. Restarting the Computer with the player connected will make the Computer recognize the connected player.

Furthermore, check whether there is any universal serial host controllers prefixed with "Enhanced".

If there is no Enhanced universal serial host controller listed under the "serial bus controller" category then it's required to install the USB 2.0 driver.

In this case, uninstall all the devices listed under the universal serial controllers category then restart the Computer to reload them automatically.

My Panasonic CF-74 doesn't seem to be detecting anything I am plugging into the USB ports or the COM port.


Some motherboard BIOS's allow you to specify how many USB ports you want enabled
go to your Control Panel, System, Device Manager.

go down to where it says Universal Serial Bus Controllers, click the + sign,
you will see a list of devices, probably something like this
via rev5 usb host controller
via rev5 usb host controller
usb printing support
usb mass storage controller
usb root hub
usb root hub

right click on the ones that say via or intel or SIS, or ALI, or Standard open host controller, and choose uninstall.

you will be asked if your sure, and you will see some of the USB root hubs disappear.

If you are asked to restart, choose no, and remove the other via/sis/intel/etc open host controller (s) from your system, when they have all been removed restart your computer.

when the computer restarts, it will detect the USB controller and connected devices, reinstall the drivers/software

USB connection problem using Windows 98 Second Edition.


The cause of this problem can be traced to both the computer's hardware configuration and Windows 98SE (Second Edition). PhotoMAX cameras and other devices featuring USB (Universal Serial Bus) connections may not work with computers running Windows 98 Second Edition and equipped with the following computer hardware: * an AMD processor (350 MHz or higher) * VIA Technologies USB Host Controller or SiS 7001 USB Host Controller To find out what USB Host Controller is on your system: 1. Click Start > Settings and choose Control Panel. 2. Double click the System icon. 3. Choose the Device Manager tab. A window similar to the one shown below appears. 4. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers listing by clicking on the "+" sign next to the listing. 5. Note the type of host controller in the listing. The example above shows the SiS 7001 PCI to USB Open Host Controller.
