new MB problem with USB turning off
Ok i just bought a new MB/CPU combo from fry's yesterday. ECS Nforce6M-A. Bios works fine, i put my windows disc in, hit key to boot from disc..as its loading everything and the screen comes up , Install New windows hit Enter, repair windows hit R , Exit hit F3 , as soon as that screen comes up, the lights on my mouse and keyboard go out and nothing workds.ALL usb in back and front panel stop working. I put a PS/2 adapter on keyboard but that doesnt power it up either.
Everything but the HD is brand new in this new computer. I even took the ram out of my Main pc and put in it..nothing changed, i unplugged all USB wires for front panel, nothing changed.Unplugged front panel audio connectors off board too, nothing. I reset bios to failsafe settings, nothing.
Is this board bad? I've never had a board have problems right out of box. Ya people will say thats what you get for buying ECS. Well i've built 15 pc's in the last 8 years, and upgraded MB/CPU on more, i usually stick with ASUS, ABIT and SOYO, but i've had have alot of ECS, never had problems with ECS.
