USB 2.0 doesn't work on K8MM-V with XP PRO SP2???

Hi to all! i've updated my XP PRO with SP2 in order to get the USB 2.0 with the drivers included in that update..but they still remain blocked on 1.1..even a PCI card with 5 USB 2.0 (certified) ports doesn't work prpoerly!!

When i plug a mss storage device, i always get a message that reminds me that device can be more fast..i've also tried to control the speed of the USB ports on the bios, but i didn't found anything related...

HELP ME!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!

Re: USB 2.0 doesn't work on K8MM-V with XP PRO SP2???



ok now the K8MM-V has several 'chipsets' yours has 8 usbs? yes?

then you have the:


VIA VT8237R Chipset...
- Integrated Faster Ethernet LPC
- Integrated Hardware Sound Blaster/Direct Sound AC97 audio
- Ultra DMA 66/100/133 master mode PCI EIDE controller
- Supports 2 Serial ATA ports
- Supports 8 USB2.0 ports

ok? now:

download a new BIOS! this means read the readme.txt please!

<<this is the xp(64bit driver set>> (incase you are missing the 2.0 or yours is corrupt)

this is your BIOS (as i said please follow ALL instructions cause its inportant)


good luck!


after BIOS flash and driver updated go into the control panel > admin. settings > computer managment > device manager then look at the USB section and update the drivers!!


rerstart and volla!


good luck!

Hi, here is the mainboards home page:

You really have three choices, but in almost all of them you MUST update your Windows installation to at least SP1, and better SP2, before proceeding. Without that update, you cannot handle any single disk volume over 128 GB.
1. Leave it as it is and use Windows Disk Manager to create separate partitions in the unallocated space. With original XP Pro, every one of them will be limited to less than 128GB.
2. As suggested, use Partition Magic or Unbutu to expand the existing partition to include all the space available. Windows itself will not let you change the size of the boot partition. Again, do NOT do this until AFTER you have updated your XP.
3. Download all the XP update files from windows update.

You can also change the operating system to windows 7.

It does not have such a limit.

Why my audio driver failed to intall?

Try looking for a patch or updated driver for your sound system in your PC, integrated or a sound card that should be available at the manufacturers website(for mobo or integrated/external sound). After updating it should work, rather it has to because sp3 is better suited than SP2 and generally microsoft itself distributes the patches & updates. Alternatively you can visit, become a free member and let the Drive probe tell you which driver, including version, your PC will require to play audio/stero sounds........sodeep

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems

Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.

USB 2.0 (Chipset VIA 8237) ECS P4M800-M7 Unknow Device

Hi, John

The USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 is a big issue regarding technology, the 1.1 has maximum speed of 12 megabits where as 2.0 has upto 480 Mbps. And all USB 2.0 devices are compatible with 1.1. Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional are both fully USB 2.0-compliant with the correct drivers.

So in your case it must work properly. But if the USB 2.0 from microsoft got currepted or badly updated by some thirdparty USB 2.0 driver then it will not work. I have been faced this problem. After doing some stuff I found that if I uninstall the USB drivers and reinstall it from microsoft driver then it works.

So, just go to the Device manager and un-install the USB drivers, then reboot the system to parmanently delete the removed driver. Then install the driver from Windows XP CD.

good luck
