    Default USB ports repair?

    Can the USB ports on a ASUS P5Q be repaired by flushing the BIOS or default settings or is it time for a new motherboard?

    A lot more information would be helpful. What operating system are you using? What is wrong with your usb ports? Do they show up in device manager?

    I am hopeful that someone with more knowledge than I on this issue will chime in. Meanwhile I have a few suggestions/questions to clarify the issue and/or solve it. Did the on-board USB ports ever work or is this a new issue? Have you installed the latest motherboard drivers? Have you tried uninstalling your USB ports in device manager and rebooting?

    Hi PrairieDawg

    Yes the ports did worked for since I bought it new - it was only recently that it stopped working.I have checked on the ASUS USA website and I do have and have already installed the latest chipset driver Version 9.1.1.1019 - that was the last one dated 19/9/2009. I first uninstalled all the USB drivers and did a complete shutdown. It did installed the default drivers dated 21/6/2006 and I then updated.I realy getting to the conclusion that I am trying to bring a dead horse to live again.It must be a hardware failure because with the new PCI cards the USB is working.

    I have an Asus M2N-E with the same symptoms.If I started with an OS on a flash drive, or that death does not recognize the ports. Instead, the two front ports work perfectly.
    In your case, as far as I know, USB ports come from the ICH10R southbridge chipset.
    The conclusion would be to try a portable operating system, preferably with a USB or Linux LiveCD to check the hardware configuration or a clean Windows installation and then you find out if certain USB ports are "gone".
    Succes!
