Default USB Port Problems

I have an Asus p5p800 SE Mb and i am having trouble with the usb ports. They are plugged in correctly and the jumpers on the Board are set according to the manual. There is absoulaty no power in the usb ports.. i plugged in my joystick and jumpdrive and nothing happens... no lights on the joystick come on.. and the jump drive dosent load up... i just installed the board... does anyone have any idea what the problem could be???

Hello,

Have you installed your chipset drivers for you new motherboard? Your motherboard should come supplied with a CD containing drivers for components on your motherboard.

Check to see if drivers have been installed for your USB ports at Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager...

If you don't have a driver CD and drivers aren't installed, you can download them at ASUSTeK's website:

Type P5P800 SE in top-left search box.

Hello,

...is happening with your USB front header (if you have one...) or just the USB ports on the I/O at the back of your PC, or both...?

...have you tried checking settings in your BIOS...?

USB ports may be disabled...
