Re: Usb ports did not work, but when i attach usb mouse...

Are the USB drivers for your motherboard installed correctly? If they are, you may need to enable the USB ports in your BIOS. Hit delete repeatedly while it boots up and enter the BIOS settings. Try to find something that indicates whether the USB ports on your motherboard are enabled.

Asus P4P800-X USB Problem

Maybe your USB port on your computer is model 1.0 while the hard drive is a 2.0. That would cause it not to read it. Check your system information and see what model your USB ports are.

It sounds like a power supply issue. Your USB ports are designed to supply power to the devices connected to them. In the case of your battery powered Ipod, the Ipod is supplying it's own power which is why it is working.

More information would give me a better chance of helping you. Is this on a laptop or desktop?

If a desktop, is the USB port on an expansion card or part of the motherboard? What brand of computer are we talking about?

Has your USB ever worked? When did it stop working? Is there anything at all happening around the computer that may have caused this (hardware added, thunderstorm, new software, etc.)?

Looking forward to your reply.

Onboard usb

VIA needs to stop making USB chipsets... lol... Are you sure you have USB legacy support enabled? Moreover, the default Windows XP drivers are not error free when used with a VIA Rev 5 USB Host Controller because it's actually a VIA Enhanced Host Controller. Every time I have USB problems with the VIA Enhanced Host Controller I go to there website, download the driver, and it usually fixes the problem.

USB 2.0 (VT6202, VT6212, VT6214/L)

Moreover, I have plugged in a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse and Windows XP could not detect it until I installed Microsoft Intellipoint; if you can believe that. Try also installing the mouse drivers as well...

Asus P4p800 se Mainboard USb Ports not working

it would seem that you are not the only one with this problem with the USB's, the only soloution i have found that people say works is to reset the cmos (remove motherboard battery without any power cord attached) for 10 mins, or, go into the bios and reset to default/optomised defaults

hope this helps

kind regards

Usb ports not working

All the USB ports were working before he installed SP3 and rebooted. After that only the mouse/keyboard ports worked. Same thing happened to me. No other changes were made, so something added/change by SP3 is the culprit.

Questions is...what did SP3 do to break USB and how to fix it?
