I have a bit of an odd problem. My USB Bandwidth seems to become exceeded fairly quickly, my current setup is:
Motherboard: Biostar GF8100 M2+ SE
4 Rear USB Ports
2 Front USB Ports
Rear Port - I have a USB keyboard plugged into a PS/2 Slot via the adapter
Rear Port - A USB Mouse straight into a USB port
Front Port - Microsoft LifeChat 3000 (Only Sometimes connected)
Front Port - Wired 360 Controller (Only sometimes connected)
My dilemma is the bandwidth is exceeded if I use too many devices, but I don't see how this is happening. I will either get the message in Windows or one of the USB ports will fail to function until the device is removed. For example:
Controller/Headset plugged in - One port will cease to function
Controller/External HDD - Functions Correctly
Headset/External HDD - Functions correctly
Headset/Webcam - Sometimes functions, other times bandwidth exceeded
What I am trying to do is simply have both the headset and controller running from the front USB ports without either port shutting off, I am unable to use the rear ports for these devices since I have to access them quite often and the computer is in somewhat of a specific place.
Any ideas on if I could increase my USB Bandwidth or fix this problem?
