Thread: 845GVSR USB Port Problem

  1. #1

    Urgent

    Hi! This is my First post here

    Now....This is the problem

    845GVSR mb's bios was flashed from the update from intel successfully.But after that(probably) all the usb port(4nos) were not working at all!

    After flashing, the usb mouse wasnt working.Supposing that the the modem might be in fault, it was replaced with a ps/2 mouse.

    Later on when the printer connected to the usb port was turned on, the system didnt recognize it at all. No documents were send to the printer as it showed that the printer was missing. So supposing that the usb cablewire/printer might be the problem, both were physically checked and checked with another system. They were working fine. SO it was concuded that the port/driver might be the problem. when the 4ports were checked ,none responded. in sysproperties, no USB Device specification was found. Supossing that the os might have some problem, the bios was checked. But in the BIOS nothing was seen inside USB option. It was blank. Is there any way to correct this? is this some physical damage? is there any alternate way to connected the usb port outlet in the mb?

    Awaiting reply....

    Usually, when you flash the bios you have to restore system defaults, then put your settings back. If you don't do this you can some very strange results.

    I know you've looked at the bios settings, but did you restore defaults first?

    Where did you get your copy of the bios?
    If there's any doubt, download the latest (P19) here

    You should also look at the release notes, from version P18 onwards there's an option to disable the USB ports completely. It isn't clear where it is, but make sure that hasn't been selected by default. It isn't mentioned in the manual because the manual hasn't been updated since 2003. The manual says any changes to the bios will be reflected in updates to the technical specification, but guess what, that hasn't been updated either. Good old Intel.

    THX a lot....the former windows os flash file[platform dependent] was from the same site. Surely that was the problem. May be it did an incomplete flash or sort of it.When the system was flashed externally from the os[platform independent], all the bios problems disappeared and all the usb ports and stuffs are back on form. thx again.
