Sometimes USB can be enabled in BIOS set-up.
Most often it is the chipset that needs updating.

If USB support is enabled in BIOS, Then download eversesthome
run the program click on the <+> by motherboard, Click on chipset
click on NORTHBRIDGE, google chipset id for updates.

How to enable highspeed usb on neclcd1770nx monitor


On most monitors that have usb ports you have to run a usb cable from the computer to the monitor to get the usb ports to work.

If your computer is not equipped with high speed usb ports you can purchase a pci usb adapter card that can make it usb 2.0 which is considered high speed.

Try purchasing one from Tiger Direct at:

Below is a link to one that I use which costs $9.99

Doesn't work.....no laser light appears on the bottom of the mouse. Nothing happens when I hit the "connect" button.


It sounds like these is either a problem with the USB port on the motherboard or with the mouse itself.

Assuming that if a wireless mouse: the batteries are new, the device is actually turned on and the transmitter has been removed from the mouse and plugged into the the USB port and it still does not work, it should be tried on all the other USB ports of the computer. If none work, try on another computer.

This will help determine if the mouse or the computer is the problem. If the mouse does not work on other ports or on the other computer, a defective mouse is likely. If it does work in a different USB port of the original computer, the first USB port is suspect.

If it only works on a different computer, the problem my lie in the setup or BIOS page of the computer. Look for a setting for USB ports. Enable the ports if disabled, and try again. If still no luck, there is some other issue at the motherboard level. Unless fairly new and under warranty, it will probably not be worth trying to fix the problem, when a $20 USB expansion card could be purchased and installed to provide USB connectivity needed.

You could also try connecting a different USB device (if available) to test the USB port. A USB webcam, hard drive, mechanical mouse, etc. are all good choices to test the port. You should indicate or cover any ports that are found to be defective.

I hope this helped and good luck!

Run "Windows Update", to see if it will find updated device-drivers for the specific USB hardware on the motherboard.

Access the ASUS web-site, and search for 'P6T', and search for USB device-drivers for Windows 7 -- if none are found, try the device-drivers for Windows Vista.

Where can i download usb drivers for my ibm thinkcenter.


What version of Windows are you using? What happens when you plug in a USB device? Any error messages? Check your BIOS and see if the ports are enabled. If theyre not, then enable them. If youre running Windows 98 Second Edition or newer, the USB port drivers are typically built in. If all else fails, you can purchase and install a USB card. If its an older machine, get the 2 port card, otherwise, the 4 or more port card will suffice. (Some 4 or more port cards dont play nice in older machines.)
