Problems with the USB hub on P5GD2, running Vista

Well...i'm having some troubles with the USB ports...The PC is saying that I have no USB 2.0 ports installed (and so all my USB devices are running at a low speed).
This happened after upgrading my Bios to vers. P5GD2D07...before that, all went fine! I went to the official site, there's no driver compatible with Vista...may I force an XP one, or is there any other solution?

Re: Problems with the USB hub on P5GD2, running Vista

So you mean that you change your OS from XP to Vista? Yeah it really wont work normal because the driver that you installed is not for VISTA compatible drivers. ANd also you cannot force to install an XP driver to a Vista OS. Try to look to google that MBR of your and find some compatible driver for your VISTA.

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question mark?

right click to reinstall drivers

if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x

I recently installed vista onto my pc and now I dont have any sound device installed. tried updating drivers/ect and nothing.. when i put in my cd that came with the motherboard it says its not compatible...

Well, you probably had Windows XP and you went to Vista. In my opinion, that was a bad move.
But if you insist on running Vista, you will have to go to the Asus site and find your motherboard under "support" and download the correct drivers for Vista. The CD that came with your motherboard was no doubt intended for use with XP or another system.

ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe motherboard with no sound

This is a known isue and ASUS is working on a sound driver for the chipset. Keep checking their site for driver updates. The board should all install with Windows 7 except for the sound drivers. Some people say they can install the vista driver and run it in vist or xp compatibility mode. The other thing you can do is pick up a cheap $20 Win 7 compliant sound card till the chipset driver issue is resolved.

USB port problems

You need the motherboard specs, which you can look up on the internet, based on the maker.
With the USB ports, the front ones often don't include power.
So plug a powered 4 port hub into the front port, and then the hub will supply the power after that.

I am getting no sound


maybe vista is not recognizing the device or it is not compatible with that os. Have you tried using windows xp, there a greater chance that it would work

I'd buy a USB 2.0 hub, connect it to one of the ports, then set the hub on top of the computer. That would make it convenient to connect devices to the hub and give you high speed to run your new devices. Good luck

ECS GeForce 6100SM-M usb issues


Like always I'm sorry for I have to be the one who's giving the bad news. The problem you face is related to a complex issue with the keyboard and mouse receiver electronics. More precisely these devices emulate a standard ps2 interface but adapts it to work with a usb port. This emulation should work fine but has some limitations. A motherboard has some 2-4 usb main ports that can be hard wired to some 1-2 usb hubs mounted also on the motherboard. A urb hub has the advantage of replicating a usb port so more then 1 devices can be connected at the same time, sharing the same interface. Motherboard manufacturers use this to enable their products to have more usb ports available to the user. However there are some devices that aren't compatible to be used through these usb hubs and must be connected directly to a usb port in order to use the full bandwich. Wireless keyboards and mices, or usb to ps2 adapters are such examples. As hard as you may try these woun't work untill you replug them at every restart because they can't be properly initialised through a usb hub. most of these devices have been optimised for such uses and don't display such problems, but as you see not all of them.
The only solution in your case would be to change the usb port where you plug these devices. Maybe your motherboard has some 1-2 usb ports that aren't run through a usb hub. Those ports would work fine. If this doesn't help, then there's no other way to make those 2 devices more "compatible" to eachother.

Hope you'll be lucky with finding the right usb plug in your motherboard. Just try every one of them, reinstall the drivers if needed, and check to see if this solves the problem.

Usb shortage

There's a photo of your motherboard here: You see the part labeled "USB header for two extra USB channels." That is where you'd connect any additional USB ports. When you say you have two ports on the front of the stack, I assume you mean on the front of your computer case? Front mounted USB are handy, and just about standard on most cases. Just connect the cable from them to that connector and you should be ready to go. If you're not sure which way to connect it, just try one - you won't break anything by connecting it backwards (you'll just have to switch it to get them to work).
