USB is powered by a current limited 5.0 volts supply. Normally even if there is a short circuit, the port is well protected but if a higher voltage is applied from outside (defetive USB device) the port can be damaged. There is a very small fuse or fusible resistor in the PCB. Unless it is burned, it is difficult to find. You can try to look near the area of the USB socket. If you were lucky enough to find it, you can replace it. Another possible solution - connect a USB hub with external power supply to one of the USB ports in your PC. If the datalines of our internal USB is still OK, then you can use this HUB. The power will come from the externel supply. Connect the USB devices on the hub and not on the PC.

Good day! just want to know how can i have sata connection with my p4vmm2?

You can use a sata controller card similar to this one.

That will fit in one of the PCI Slots (white)

You can purchase them with 2,4,6, and 8 sata ports.

Lost install instructions for Hi-speed usb 2.0 5-port PCI card.

The drivers are here. You shouldn't need to do anything to install the card other than plug it into a PCI slot in your computer and install the drivers.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I am using an older PC with a ASUS CUSL2 AGP Pro/4X Motherboard as a intra-offfice server devise. I'd like to add USB 2.o or change out the 2 rear USB prots to 2.0. I've tried doing this witha USB 2.0 PCI...

You have two options

One is to replace the whole motherboard but that would probably also entail new ram, cpu, cooler, graphics card, even maybe a new PSU.

Two is to fit a pci usb 2.0 card.

You said you did TWO but it didnt work. I am not sure why without more details but if you are using windoes 95 or less than that would be a major problem.

Only the later windows 98 and above can really make full use of USB 2.0 and even with 98 and win ME you would need to make sure he correct drivers were installed too.

ASUS P4SDX USB Ports not recognized as USB2 HS Ports

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.

All USB ports dead....


Try removing the PCI USB Adaptor and clean the gold contact with dry brush, then place it back again. If this still doesn't work, try moving the PCI USB Adaptor into other available PCI slot.

I hope this procedure solves your problem.
