Default USB 2.0 ports not working

It was about a month ago, I have no idea what brought it on, it seemed kinda random. Nothing USB is detected, my keyboard, mouse, numpad, cell phone, and now my brand new digital camera.

Device manager says everything is working properly, USB ports wont work in safe mode either.

Heres a screenshot of whats listed in Device Manager;



I'm running:
DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra D mobo on W2k SP4

If theres any more info needed just ask.

WinXP by Default turns off USB Root Hubs to Conserve Power causing some devices not to resume correctly after Windows resumes from sleep, hibernation or computer inactivity
In the Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers > USB Root Hub > Power Management, Uncheck the box per the illustration below. Uncheck all boxes on all root hubs.

did you install the drivers from the disc that was included with your motherboard? if you did, then you shouldn't have. the drivers screw up with Win2k and XP, you should use the ones windows installs automatically for a DFI NF4 Lanparty board.

Wound up having to go into the bios and changed some settings regarding usb mouse and keyboard management from os to bios and that solved the problem...


random eh?
