Probably they didn't set up the front USB ports when they were wiring the computer. If you have the motherboard schematic it will show where the front USB ports connect on the board. Best have a technician take a look at it to determine and hook it up.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Keyboard, mouse, front USBs,DVD recorder not working


It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.

Flash drive ports on teh fron wont work on pc


If your system is USB 1 rather than USB 2 then some flash drives will not work. Not all usb 2 flashdrives are backwards compatible. My kids flasdrives will only work on my usb2 ports & will not work at all on my wife's computer which has the older usb 1 ports.

Driver


Hi,
For any computer there will be at least 4 usb ports. 2 at the front and other 2 at the back side of cpu. If any one is not recognizing then insert it in different usb port. If any of the port is not working then install the driver for your usb port. Download the usb driver from the below link.

As you stated the device works in one slot but not the other , tells you there is problem with that usb port , don't use those ports , best thing to do is purchase a PCI USB card if you need more USB ports .

A USB mouse will work but the PS/2 mouse failed. What causes it?


Hi melch, On the PS/2 mouse, chances are that the surface mounted fusible link/resistor supplying the +5VDC is open. It is normally very near the PS/2 port and marked [0] or labeled F???. This can be verified by measuring the absence/presence of +5 at pin 4 of the connector. In some cases, it is the I/O chip that gets damaged. Re "only two(2)USB port" aside from the 2 rear USB ports, the Asus CUV4X-C has another pair of USB connectors that are normally connected to the front panel of the casing. It is located very near the motherboard battery. Re "...prompting...high speed USB port...", normally by updating your OS (say XP to SP2) or downloading/installing latest VIA 4 in 1 Drivers should make your USB 2.0 compatible. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
