No USB devices recognized by Windows Tags: Devices USB Motherboards Windows XP Last response: February 1, 2007 4:27 AM in Windows XP Share charmed_0215 January 30, 2007 2:23:36 AM I got a new motherboard, CPU, and memory. Using the existing hard drive/CD drive. Everything seems to be working except the USB ports. Printer, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, sound, video all work. I tried multiple USB devices -- mouse, printer, sd card reader -- and none work. I tried all 4 ports. I'm not using a USB hub. Tried updating the USB drivers manually from the motherboard's website; that didn't work. Tried uninstallling and reinstalling the devices in "device manager"; that didn't work. I don't want to reinstall everything but wondering if that's my only option. Thanks, Dawn More about : usb devices recognized windows pscowboy January 30, 2007 3:08:37 AM Do a Repair install. Your "stuff" will be okay. Pop in the XP cd and restart. Boot from the cd - at the first Repair screen, hit Enter - at the second Repair screen, hit R. On subsequent install restarts, do not boot to the cd. dokk January 31, 2007 11:52:17 AM Quote:Do a Repair install. Your "stuff" will be okay. Pop in the XP cd and restart.

I did select "default settings" as the motherboard manufacturer recommended. Dawn pscowboy February 1, 2007 4:27:23 AM One thing you can check in the BIOS would be in the Advanced section, Peripheral Configuration - or something to that effect. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
