USB ports stops working during 3.0 update !

Ok, I went on Gigabyte's website to update some drivers for my new Z77-UD3H motherboard, and I downloaded the USB 3.0 update that just came out couple days ago. However, while it's still installing, I think the update uninstalled the original driver and then a windows security message popped up and asked me if I want to continue with the installation, however the original driver was already uninstalled so my mouse and keyboard all stopped working ! This is really stupid... And I found the board has only usb 3.0 in the back and the keyboard only works when I'm in BIOS; put in win7 disc but it loads into some sort of windows UI so the USBs won't work there neither... I'm running out of solutions, so please help if anyone has a suggestion for me :(

  1. hahahaha

    haha

    omg that's kinda funny

    Doubly compounded by Gigabyte having only 3.0 ports on the backpanel (who designs this stuff?)

    If your case has a USB 2.0 front panel you can hook those up to the 2.0 headers on the motherboard (there are 3 dual port headers on the motherboard), otherwise you can use a PS2 mouse or use something like Input Director to control it over LAN
  2. Unplug the keyboard and mouse and plug it back in. Use the USB on the back. Try that.
  3. Or u could use the Win disc to run a repair.
  4. Tried those in the front and back, none works, used a PS/2 adapter to connect my mouse, I can see it gets the power but it won't move. As I said the windows disc gets me into a windows UI and the USBs don't work in there.
    For the input director method, I have another computer, but do I need to install anything on the computer that got messed up ? Cause I can't move anything except changing the settings in BIOS...

    um... yeah you do

    That is honestly really weird. It shouldn't have had a problem with the PS2 mouse
  6. Well, use your other PC to erase the SSD and install again.

    Sometimes you just have to kick it a few times

    Disclaimer: Computers have few mechanical parts and thus kicking one is not likely to solve any issues
  9. Take advantage of that : )
  10. Do u think that windows have installed the driver by recognizing a new device?

    That's what I thought it would do.
