Swapping power supplies is always a good test. If you can't switch the supplies between the systems, then you'll need to swap the motherboards as you said. From your description, it does sound like one of them is flaky. But since the thing's under warranty, why not just send it back and save the effort? You'll wind up doing that anyway.
If these are case front/top or other panel ports, verify that the ports are connected correctly.
if ports are configured correctly, remove all usb drivers via device manager. then reinstall them. if the problem still occurs you either have corrupt usb drivers (probably not since 2 ports work) or the USB ports were damaged in installation or because of usage.
sometimes the ports will not clear their settings, try the object you are plugging into the 2 non-workign ones to another port hen try something you never plugged into the 2 non-working. if you still get an error, its a driver or damage issues
Actually - most dells even barebones come with some type of warranty - I don't believe that this information should be showing at all. - Should be booting up to the Operating System you ordered it with. I would instruct you to either call Dell Support right away and see what their first line of Tech Support says. 1-800-873-1420. Blessing A/V Media Guy
is a socket 754 motherboard. It will support AMD Athlon processors up to Athlon64 3400+. It is a bit long in the tooth by today's standards, and only uses DDR memory, not DDR2. You may get more of a bang for your buck by buying a "barebones" system, which can consist of a motherboard with processor and memory, depending on how much you want in the barebones package.
Typically you use the case, power supply you already have with the new motherboard and processor and ram (memory).
At any rate, if you only want to upgrade your processor, keep in mind that your board only supports up to the Athlon64 3400+. It will support up to DDR 400 ram. You would probably benefit more by buying 2 sticks of 400 DDR ram at 2 gigs each, if you don't have much ram now. If your processor is close to the 3400+, then another processor in that board isn't going to change things much.
Good luck, and write back if you'd like more help.
Try going into the BIOS and selecting safe or minimal settings/options save and reboot. If this works go back to BIOS and make changes one at a time until it may not work again, then you will know which option is causing the system hang ups. My guess is also your motherboard is SATA 1 capable (1.5
gbs) not SATA 2, in which you could purchase a separate controlller card for your HDD. Good luck.
is well known that elitegroup motherboard have this problem, try it to dissasemble another time yor matherboard, let it out of case reasemble pieces out of case switch on and look if the system is stabile or not, if it is, prior to put *********** board to the case put under the mainboard aplastic film then mount in the case, this must solving your problem, if even out of case the system is reseting disconect any devices and let ontly floppy drive on it with ram and processor too , download from internet newer version of your bios and make it a new flash from floppy drive, this mut resolve your problem definitely to you. in any case dont forgt to put plastic film under mainboard(withaout scotching them or sometthing like this) and mount it in his place.
Give me the full model and manufacturer information on your computer. Is it made by one of the major brands, i.e. HP, Dell, etc or is it a barebones system? If barebones then I will need motherboard model # to go with the manufacturer information that you have given already. ECS is infamous for issues.
