    all usb stopped working



    hi guys
    my mesh system is 4 years old and out of warranty.
    all 6 of my usb are no longer working.
    my usb are shown under device manager with no yellow marks. any usb i attach is not recognised by computer.
    i have tried uninstal usb then restart computer with no effect.
    i have tried all 6 diffrent slots with various usb devices(ie keyboard/camera/memory stick) but none work.

    does this mean the motherboard is going or is there any other action i can take?

    i currently have p5nsli. if new motherboard is required any recommendations.(have around £100 at moment. processor E6600

    Thanks robbo

    Re: all usb stopped working

    do you have a spare hard drive to install a test copy of windows to ?

    or even boot to safe mode and try a usb mouse

    Re: all usb stopped working

    4 years is the rough timeframe where the capacitors on the motherboard and particularly the power supply go bad.

    Check the voltages from the power supply with this program: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php - the figures are not always accurate when read with software, however.

    Check the appearance of the capacitors all over the motherboard. The tops of them should be flat, not rounded or bulging and definitely nothing leaking. You do have to look carefully, as it can be awkward to identify slightly bulging caps sometimes.

    Bad cap example: http://blogs.mie.utoronto.ca/roller/...12-badcaps.jpg

    have you tried booting to safe mode and testing a usb device ?

    Re: all usb stopped working

    sounds like the 5v lines blown on the USB, unless you want a new motherboard you can always buy a pci card with usb on it.

    So you've gone from no USB ports working with any device to the printer working fine, but the pen drive not working? Looks like it's time to replace that pen drive if that's the case.

    I'm guessing but the pen drive may have developed an electrical short. This could have blown your computers existing USB ports. I'd throw it away if I was you - and certainly not try it in your PC again.

    Regarding the sound card you could always get a USB sound card from deal extreme/led shoppe for now. Its not going to be brilliant but will allow you the time to save up to replace the motherboard etc.

    Re: all usb stopped working

    Another possibility is a pair of usb headphones, most bypass the soundcard, so you don't need a soundcard for them to work.
