ECS GeForce 6100SM-M usb issues

I have a ECS GeForce 6100SM-M motherboard and a wireless keyboard and mouse by micro inovations model number kb985w. anyways i installed the reciever which is only 1 usb plug. then i turn on the computer and it powers up the reciever an all but it wont move the pointer or give me keyboard support. I then have to unplug the usb plug and plug it back in then it works like a charm. i have to do this everytime the computer is rebooted. any ideas?

Re: ECS GeForce 6100SM-M usb issues

I have had this same problem. Actually it was 2 fold. First the mouses range was incredibly short so I resorted to using my Logitech wireless mouse that works everywhere I could ask it to. Second as far as the keyboard not being recognized on reboot I used a PS/2 - USB adapter and plugged the receiver into my keyboard PS/2 port. This is working great! I would like to thank Bogdan because without his advice about the USB ports I would never have thought to try this solution.

Re: 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.
