My USB-ports seem te do what they want. Sometimes they work for one time and then all the other ports not anymore. I have loaded the USB-ports new, and then also it works once. Reloading Windows works also for one connection. How can help me

No SATA port is not available with this motherboard, however there are 2 IDE ports available
Following is te details of he ports:
• Up to six USB 2.0 ports
— Four ports routed to the back panel
— Two ports routed to the USB 2.0 header
• Two IDE interfaces with Ultra DMA-33 and ATA-66/100 support
• One diskette drive interface
• One parallel port
• One serial port
• One VGA port
• PS/2* keyboard and mouse ports
If the usb ports don't seam to have power, I suspect that at some time something was plugged into one of the ports, either at an angle or upside down, shorting the +5 vdc supply. Usually the supply voltage is fed to the ports thru a "zero ohm resistor", basically a fuse that blows protecting the power supply. You may be able to find and replace it but much easier is to install a 4 port usb pci card. They're cheap and you can go to 2.0.
The message comes up when a USB 2 device is connected to a slower USB 1 or 1.1 port. It is only to advise you that the devise will operate faster on a USB 2 port. If your computer has only USB 1 or 1.1 ports, you will always see the message. You can buy and install a card with USB 2 ports and install it. It will come with the USB 2 drivers. Install the card and the drivers and then connect your USB 2 device to the new hardware and you should not see the message anymore.
Good luck, And let me know ho it works out for you.
Pleasure to see a fellow brown are we related ? :->
have you performed a test of each wire with a multi meter
to determine if each wire is indeed not broken ( open circuit )
if things check out ok with the multi meter , then it's time to start
digging deeper , such as asking yourself if you have indeed ENABLED the usb header at the bios level and has an IRQ that
does not conflict with other devices.
Also you'll want to make sure a driver is properly loaded for each
USB port , sometimes we forget to do all these things.
if all checks out after that , it's time to start getting suspicious
of the device being plugged in to the port , a dirty port can mean loss of connection , silly but so true.
if all checks out after that but still no luck , it's time to start asking yourself if you want to test things farther with extensive
checking of each USB port to make certan each port can read and write , this can be done with certan software.
if everything checks out at that point but still no luck ,
it's time to start asking yourself if you've made a boo boo
by loading an incorrect Operating system, ( rare )
I hope this information has been helpful , sometimes
we fail to get our trouble shooting ducks in a row.
have you tried checking the driver for that device?go to to start>control panel>system>device>usb controllers.you will see if there's a problem regarding the connection of your usb...try reinstalling the cd driver that comes with the mobo...
