Ecs gf 8200a usb ports dont work, running vista 64

Ecs gf 8200a running vista 64 cannot get the usb ports for the front of the computer to work i tried the different ports on the motherboard, no luck, i contacted ultra thinking it was the case and they sent me a new usb/audio port plate for the case. when i hooked the new one up, it worked for like half a day, i've tried to find solutions at the ecs website but no luck yet. I would really appreciate any help, not being able to use my front usb ports really sucks.. game controllers, ipod, etc, have to get plugged in the back....

Could be a bum board or specifically, bum usb controller on the board. Make sure you update your BIOS, and make sure the BIOS says the front USB is activated. You also want to make CERTAIN you have the USB drivers from the motherboard mfr site, because windows native drivers might not be as good as mfr drivers. Also, put a flash drive in the front USB and try to boot from it (youd prolly have to get some linux bootable OS thing to do that with, but im sure its out there somewhere), because if you can boot from a flash drive, it would mean the issue is in the windows OS, and not your bios or usb firmware. Finally, make sure there are no broken USB ports on the board itself, a messed up port on the board might corrupt the rest of them. If all that should fail, you could bypass the problem by dropping an external USB hub on the top of the machine and plugging it to the back. I know thats ugly and causes clutter, but it would solve the immediate issue: the lack of ports. Youd likely be better off with another board though because it seems that the front usb controller is simply not functioning correctly. If you do have to replace the board, get a board from the same mfr with similar features, so that windows vista will be able to start it, or you may have ro reload the OS.

This a USB scanner and it supports the following OS's: Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional / Microsoft® XP (32 bit/64 bit) / Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 (32 bit/64 bit) / Microsoft® Windows Vista™ (32 bit/64 bit). IF, the usb cable is connected in the front usb connectors go ahead and plug it in the back usb ports since sometimes the front usb ports are either to slow or not connected. Additional, after pluging the the scanner on the back usb ports restart your computer and then proceed reinstalling the drivers for it.

Yes, the external floppy drive must be connected directly to a USB port on the computer instead of to a USB hub.The PC can't see the drive thru the USB hub. Applies to both 32 and 64 bit.

ECS GF 8200A does not support more than 3 gig ddr2 memory


Is the mainboard capable of supporting more than 3 GB?

If it is then maybe you have the wrong kind of memory, or the slot is bad.

Take all your memory out and just try with the new stick in one of the good slots. If it works then we know the memory is OK so then try it in the "bad" slot.
