USB ONBOARD NOT WORKING

Hello, the onboard usb ports doesnt work.
I reinstalled the XP and still doesn't work.
I purchased a cheap PCI CARD USB to try solve the problem.
It detect fine a USB mouse and makes it work but there is a problem when detecting my PEN DRIVE KINGSTON 1Gb.
In the device manager appears a yellow interrogation mark with the code 10: device can not start and points to a driver problem.
Please help.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I have read the mentioned article.

    I have just tried another more valuable "PCI USB card" before considering the instalation of that patch and the system worked for all the USB 2 devices (with the new card and the USB onboard disabled).

    The first card was cheaper and it was not very compatible with the system.

    Thanks for the atention.

Adding discrete graphics card to p6stp-fl


!O_O!

1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. (HAS to be 10. Count)
Do this same procedure TWO more times.
(IF the Power On LED flashes for a second, keep repeating until it doesn't)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

3) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions remove the graphics card.
Plug the monitor back into the Integrated (OnBoard) graphics, of the motherboard. (VGA connector)

4) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

5) When Windows has loaded wait a couple of minutes, then take that graphics card's Installation (CD) Disk, and put it in the optical drive.

If the disk doesn't start loading after 10 seconds, go to My Computer, and double-click on the drive letter, next to the optical drive, the Installation Disk is in.

When asked choose all software. Nvidia Control Panel, and drivers.

Your computer will keep on using the Integrated (OnBoard) drivers, for graphics. It will Not use the drivers, and software you are installing now, until the graphics card is physically installed.

Install all software. If you are asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

6) Unplug from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Unplug the monitor from the motherboard. Physically install the graphics card.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

7) Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
You may have to go into Nvidia Control Panel, and set the correct parameters for your monitor. (Screen Resolution / Color quality )

Clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to factory settings doesn't work?
You get to go back into BIOS Setup, and set the submenu you changed, (Or submenu's), back to the factory standard setting.
(F6?)

You are trying to use the OnBoard graphics drivers for the -> graphics card. This = NO.
You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed F-I-R-S-T.

(OnBoard. ON the motherBOARD.
Used to be used for Integrated Graphics.
Makes it easier to understand if you use OnBoard Graphics )

Why?

When a device, (In this case a graphics adapter card), is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

This = No.

You need THE drivers already installed. Windows looks to see what device is installed, then finds THE drivers needed.

Nosound


Hi there,

I am going to just have a few guesses at your problem as "nosound" doesnt really clarify it enough =]

If your onboard sound isnt working, You could try looking for an audio driver for this particular motherboard. Google "Intel D865GRH Onboard Sound Driver"

If you are using audio ports in a computer Case, make sure they are connected correctly to the motherboard, or use the audio ports on the back of the board.

Onboard sound does break on some of these older boards, Try using an external soundcard. (PCI or AGP) or a USB one. I picked a 7.1ch USB soundcard up off ebay for $8 and it works fine on all my old motherboards.

Hope this helps you, Best of luck.

Onboard sound card does not seem to be working can anolther card be purchased for this board and if so what?


cmi 8738 is a cheap solution. first disable the on board ac97audio in bios setup,then install the pci card into the pci slot. usually the system can find the sound card and auto install driver , if not, setup the driver manully.

Hi, I cannot get the sound to work from this


Hi,
Firstly I need to establish if you have tried the obvious: Does the driver show to be installed correctly in your device manager?
Secondly why don't you use the PCI slot and install an add on sound card. They are relatively cheap and if you are using another device in this slot, there is also the option to purchase a USB sound card which just plugs into any USB port. It has all the same sockets as your onboard sound card where you can plug in your speakers, microphone etc.

Please let me know about my first question or if you would like any further assistance.

Best wishes,

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.

USB 2.0 on Intel D845PT Motherboard


HI,

Yes, that board is only a 1.1 USB port. USB 2.0 can easily be added to a computer using a USB 2.0 PCI card. These cards are relatively cheap and they can be found in almost any computer store. You can even find USB 2.0 PCI cards at Walmart. The cards will typically have 3 - 5 ports on them. These ports are setup so that you will have to plug your USB devices into the back of the computer.

Good Luck

Both printer and 9 pin serial ports not working


What has changed? One solution is to go into BIOS when you first turn on your PC hit <del> key. Make sure the ports are enabled. The second solution is to make sure you didn't add a device with serial ports or something which is sharing the same IRQs, which is 3 4 and 7 traditionally (for COM1/2 and parallel port).

If you tried all this and it doesnt work, then somehow the chip on the motherboard which handles these (the UART chip) has broke, you need to replace the motherboard or buy a card with serial and parallel ports on it (this should be quite cheap, ie 10-20 dollars).

PCI GA-8ID533 V1.1


there is no PCI lock on any retail boards. But there are IRQ sharings and conflicts. Set IRQ to auto, if not, then manualy and if so, then disable a few things, just to free up some IRQs. All depends on the board, best is to consult the manual for the IRQ sharing table and work with that. (disable one SERIAL, IDE port or USB port if you need an extra IRQ) Also check for onboard equivalent to the card you are adding, disable the onboard part...
