Question about AOpen AX4SPE Max (91.8AT10.501) Motherboard
I have recently started having problems with my usb ports. First I tried to install a new multi-function Epson printer. The scanner part installed ok but the printer didn't seem to install. I had a lengthy discussion with the Epson help desk where we tried uninstalling the printer drivers and removing the usb ports via device manager. No luck. They recommended contacting the manufacturer.
Since then I've bought a Freecom mobile drive which works fine on several pc's but not the problem one. It just makes a funny clicking sound when you plug it in.
I also had problems with another external hard drive which is connected to the firewire port. This was not being recognised at all, although it seems to be working all right at the moment.
I've tried restoring a known good backup of the operating system but this hasn't fixed the problem. Could this be a hardware problem? Is there anyway to diagnose it? Do I need to replace the motherboard?
Any help would be appreciated.
I assume these are the built in ports you are
having trouble with.Do you have a terminal to
install another usb port via a dongle It may be
that the inner terminals of the usb receptacle
are not making good contact (defective) If you
have a junk board with same setup you
might be able to desolder the port,and
replace yours. I haven't had the occassion to
try this yet, but it might work
