Help I am fed up and depressed :(

Okay so I have been having problems with my computer for about a month. My computer's USB devices occasionally stop responding and a reboot is always required. Those USB devices are always my mouse and keyboard so it is pretty aggravating. Sometimes it is just the mouse and when it is it reconnects. I also am having problems with a Nvidia display driver not responding and being recovered. Having a gaming PC is my dream and to finally achieve it but have problems like this is extremely depressing.

failing power supply......maybe..... but thinking more towards bad motherboard. too many board related things going on at once.

how old is this thing ?

old enough to have the battery replaced ?

does it ever stop showing the right date and time ?

why does it say this I wonder ?....."Other OS Description Not Available"

you put this together yourself ?.. did you install the motherboard drivers that came on the disc that was in the motherboard box ?

also, are you familiar with the BIOS and how to do anything with it ?

and did you try alternate usb ports to plug the mouse and keyboard into ?

For the USB thing - It must be the drivers.

Try updating your bios?

I did not build it myself. I had somebody help me and I do not recall what he did.I have tried updating the bios but I am not sure how to do it. Plugging it in different USB ports does not help.

didn't see your motherboard listed, however, the BIOS thing, ........ some board sites have software for auto downloading and installing the BIOS from the desktop. real easy to do. just follow instructions.......... and say yes to backing up old BIOS and remember where it is. ( documents or whatever. good to burn it to a disc before reboot. )

there are drivers on the disc that came with the motherboard. some of these help the motherboard run right. you should look to see what's on there and see if your machine needs them..... the BIOS auto update thing may also be on there......... but after using it to install the new BIOS uninstall it. some like to auto scan all the time and end up giving people problems and they have no idea what the problem is.

since this machine is "new"............. shut down/unplug from wall. pull battery and wait a few minutes and then reinstall battery. put a magic marker mark on it before you pull it so you know what way to put it back in. doing this will set the BIOS back to stock.... just in case anything is awry. after doing this run your machine and apps and see if there are any positive changes.

I honestly believe you did not install the Motherboard drivers, go to the manufacturers website and download all the drivers necessary for your motherboard , the USB dropping out is a sign you dont have the drivers , also do a Windows update , it will find drivers for your hardware that can be necessary for them to function correctly.

if you were actually reading any of this.............. you can download BIOS AUTO UPDATE software from asus' site and run the BIOS update from the desktop after installing the software. It's idiot proof. It even looks for the newest BIOS update for your motherboard...........

I had a similar problem. In which the mouse driver would not work/any mouse I used. Cpu consumption was always 95%+ causing my computer to be slow as hell. After over 10 hours+ over a period of a few days I decided to randomly disable one of the usb ports and what do you, it worked like a charm. Everything was working fine.
