I built a computer for the first time and when i went to go use the usb ports(for printers, gamepads, joystick) they didnt work. Im running XP SP2 and I know my hardware works for XP. Under device manager, it says my usb is workin ok. But when i plug in a printer or my gamepad, Windows does not detect it or anything. I cant get anything to work on ANY usb port. I've uninstalled and reinstalled everything and i dunno. I checked the bios. I need help. Thanks

Did you install the chipset and usb drivers that are on the cd that came with the mobo?

What mobo and cpu do you have?

I would contact Asus with this one, sounds like a bad board and time for rma.

One other thing, I know you said you "checked bios" but double check it and make sure the usb controller is enabled.

Also if you make changes don't for get to save when you exit.

I've got a similliar problem with the USB. I couldn't figure this out myself so decided to return this Mother Board and get a different one. Seems alot of people are having problems with this card.

I suspect everyone is right about the mobo being the problem.

Just thought I'd mention one thing but it's a [bleep] of a long shot - are you using different cables with each of these devices? Because if you are using the same usb cable each time, it could be the cable thats the problem.
