I recently purchased a asus k8n mobo and amd 64 3400. After installing win xp, my comp is not able to detect any USB ports. I've looked in the device manager and it says my USB ports are working properly. I looked into my bios setup and my USB is enabled. Also i've tried updating my bios from 1009 to the 1010, but then it gives me error "USB device over current status detected" so then i had to go back to the 1009 version. Another problem that may be related is my sound drivers. Nieither does the onboard nor my Sound blaster live card produce any sound. please help thank you!. if you need any more info just ask.

Try reinstalling the USB drivers that came on the cd with the motherboard.

You will probabaly have to use Windows Update service to upgrade the USB.

Do unto others exactly what you expect them to do to you.

Did you try reseating your mobo? Maybe it's not sitting in the case properly.

Did you move any jumpers when you installed the board.Maybe your missing some jumper's.Or they arent in the right place.Its worth a check. Its also possible that your sound card is dead or bad i had a a-open sound card once that was bad. And make sure the onboard audio is off in the bios when your try to install the sound card.Also you have nvidia audio drivers and realtech.Use the nvidia if you have to use the onboard sound i think they sound better. Also what ports are you using the one's in the front of the case?If so are you sure you hooked them up right?I have a web cam that will only work in 2 or my 6 usb ports.But my Zip drive works in all my USB ports.

If you miss wire a front usb port its possible its messing with all your usb ports

Try uninstalling the USB controllers in device manager and reboot. XP should find new hardware and you can run with it from there.

Have you been to Windows Update site yet? What happened?

Let me see if I understand the USB problem right, and try to pin-down some particulars:

1) Your USB ports did work before you installed WinXP?

2) You did not make ANY other changes besides installing WinXP before the problem appeared?
If you did, what did you remove/add/install/reconfigure? (hardware and software)

3) You say the system doesn't detect the ports, yet they DO appear in the device manager? (that seeems contradictory)

4) Have you verified whether +5V is available on the USB outputs?
(this goes back to your statement about the USB "over current status" message)



Have you tried any USB port detection programs like "usbview.exe"? If so, what was the result?

Have you tried any system interrogation programs like "siw.exe" (or similar)? If you did, what did it say about the USB ports? http://www.majorgeeks.com/SIW_System_Info_d4387.html

Here are the solutions that i've tried:
-i uniinstalled and let winxp re-install the USB drivers
-i tried updating the BIOS to the latest one ASUS provides for my mobo, but it gives me the error "USB Device over current status detected" everytime i boot up
-i tried manually installing usin the file usbochi.sys but for some reason when i click "have disk" in device manager it cannot find it even though i kno i have it.

I do have win xp sp 2 installed and My USB ports have not been working ever since i bought it. Alll the jumpers are correctly placed. Im afraid i mite have to RMA it.

i recommend disconnecting un-nessecary usb devices, if you have external usb ports on your case disconnect the ones you dont use. i had the overcurrent problem and found it was due to the fact i had to many external on exclosure usb sockets connected to the motherboard.

check the resource setting for usb and sound, they might use the same irq and theirfore have a collision.
you can also try the usb drivers that came with the mobo setup cd instead of the win xp drivers.

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
