  1. What kind of mouse and keyboard do you have?

    I have the logitech M705 and a HP keyboard
  3. I would check the website of your mouse and keyboard manufacturer, as they may have had driver updates or 8.1 solutions. Also I would try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers again. Except this time run Driver Sweeper(Guru3D), its a free program, after you uninstall the driver via device manager. This will clean up all of the excess files that may have been left behind. There might have been conflicting files when you tried to reinstall.

    I'm not saying this will work for sure, but just some thoughts. Let me know if this works. Thanks and good luck with your issue.
  4. Sorry to hear about your problem. Are you happened to have Asus motherboard? For your amusement, read my thread on Microsoft site. They combined several threads in to one, therefor it is all over the place, but it can be fun reading. No solution. I have Asus motherboard Deluxe version, and they got rid od PS2 ports, so for me there was no other way but to reinstall OS. I was advised to disable the xHCI in the USB preferences on the BIOS, and check that the "Legacy USB" option is activated" It supposed to turn USB 3 to USB 2. I did not try it- I have try to put it on "Enabled" instead of "Smart Auto"- did not work. Also after I reinstalled OS, I did not have this problem. If you are on Asus, try to uninstall USB 3 boost- it came with the IA Suite on Asus motherboard disk. Right now I do not have that suite installed and I have no issues so far. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-system/usb-ports-failed-after-windows-81-update-can-not/8cb691a3-581d-4800-b70e-c09564e4aa26

    Well- hello then! Welcome to my nightmare. 4 days of down time. As I stated earlier- did you install AI Suit (or how ever it called) from Asus disk? Get rid of USB 3 boost. Also how did you get in to device manager? I can not find "Computer" in Win 8.1.

    Hi Astralv yes I installed ASUS AI Suite III and I will get rid of it now.
    Device Manager
    you go in to the windows star menu and click the little arrow down and you should see allot of programs find control panel and open it. Then go to Hardware and Sound open that and under Device and Printers with blue it should say Device Manager on the right hand side.
  10. Ok, I see it now. Thanks. Have you seen "Computer" anywhere? I swear it was there last time I installed OS but this time I don't have it.

    No I cant see computer
  13. Great!

    I wish I could do it myself- I had NO USB support- I could not log in. I was trying to use Remote Desktop to log in but it failed to connect. So- is there a way to install AI Suit without USB 3 boost? Are they the same program? I need AI Boot for Fan Expert.
