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.

Yes i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the USB wit win xp. When i try installin the USB drivers wit the mobo cd it just says win sp1 should install it for you. And my win xp has been upgraded to sp 2. i really hope i dont have to RMA it.
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
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.
