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...

USB 2.0 doesn't work on K8MM-V with XP PRO SP2??? - bc3486e.gif


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!

It sounds like the BIOS is set to auto-boot from the USB device.
Have you reset the 'boot order' in the BIOS?

Also if you are still running sp2 go to Microsoft update and install the updates. You should be running on service pack 3.
(the updates are free, and are more secure than sp2)

Reinstalled xp after Vista . USB port not working

Hi there,

The usb drivers are part of your chipset drivers, so lets try and get this sorted. The reason that they work in Vista, is probably because Vista has added support for your chipset and XP SP2 doesn't.

Try installing XP from scratch. First you need to completely wipe your hard drive. Use the XP boot disc, you need to delete the hard drive partition as well. This way, you will start with a RAW drive.

Set up a new partition, and let the XP disc format the drive with NTFS. Do NOT use quick format. Then let XP copy the files and install.

When XP has installed, get your internet set up, and download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft:

You will notice that Microsoft have written not to use if updating just one machine. Ignore this. The reason is because this is the FULL Service Pack, hence it being over 300MB.

Once you have SP3 installed, your system will restart. Open Windows Update, make sure you have this set to update all Microsoft products, then download all updates. Restart your system and check if your usb's are working.

If they are still not working, go to the laptop website and download the chipset drivers from there, but make sure you are downloading the drivers for XP. If not, then go to the Chipset manufacturer's website and download from there.

Let me know how you get on
