I recently installed a new Mobo and Processor for my house-mate and since installation his USB devices have been playing hell.
Mouse turns off randomly and sticks, keyboard turns off randomly, BSOD (BUG_CODE_USB_DRIVER)
We thought it was a HDD issue but he has 3, all 3 of them exhibit the same issue when plugged in seperatley. (tested with windows, I work in IT so I have LOADS of liscences)
We also checked all the USB drivers and reinstalled windows.
We then discovered that the mouse started sticking every now and again in the UFEI BIOS - which indicated a mobo issue, however when I flashed the BIOS to the latest release it seemed to fix the BIOS sticking of the mouse, but didnt fix it within windows OR windows installatoin.
I think this is a mobo issue, infact I'm 99% sure, HOWEVER, I love ASUS so much that I refuse to beleive it, and I dont like the idea of making him RMA it and get a new one.
Any second opinions?
[EDIT] - There were 2 bent (VERY SLIGHTLY) pins on the socket, is this the issue? I've never actually seen a bent socket pin in my life, is there any feasable way to bend it back?
