Just add the USB mouse...your machine should be able to detect it in a good port.

? Taking a serious look at it here...there is a series of 3 USB ports and then the series of 2...My thinking is the two came with the machine and I know we had some added and that would be the 3. The series of two ports is screwed in at one end and then theres a slot into a harness at the other ...this series wiggles at one end. Now...I dont know if this means anything because basically all equipment has been plugged in forever and just recently was moved when this room was painted...but I dont think any type of force was used on it.

Sounds like you have a loose bracket...not a biggie, but you should tighten it up before it gets too loose.

Let's uninstall all the offending devices in Device Manager by right clicking on each and choosing "Remove". Connect the USB mouse and reboot. Let me know if you get a few "Found new hardware" windows when you restart.

Just don't use that port. There's voltage in the USB ports...we certainly don't want to short anything out. :)

Let me know how it goes with the devices. I'm about to call in some off-continent help on this one. :tazz:

This is a really wierd one. I don't remember ever having a driver issue be this resistive. I'm looking in to stripping all the VIA drivers so we can point the device to the drivers we want by making them the only choice. :tazz: Problem is...VIA has no uninstallers. I'm thinking we can remove the VIA folders and Edit the registry, but want to make sure that's the correct route before we do it.

I'll also get some more eyes on this...there's plenty of talent to choose from here! :)

Are the extra usb points on an add on card - something like this (the pic won't be exactly the same )
USB Card

or does it plug in something like this LPT Port
Lpt ribbon

Go to device manager and right click on the usb device go to properties then the resource tab
there should be resource type what is listed?
I/O range and IRO ?
If yes what are the values listed next to them ?

Good Afternoon Peter...I will have to get back to you on whether this is a card or a ribbon.
All I know at the moment is that it is a STLab PCI VIA6202-2 USB 2.0


When I do as you instruct...Use Auto Settings is checked.

There are two Resource types listed and their settings...As Follows

Interrupt Request with a setting of 10

Memory Range 18000000-180000FF

Conflicting Device List reads "No Conflicts"

Thats all there is.
