Alright I just got a brand new MSI K8N Platinum. And this is what happened.
When I loaded all my system I had a CMOS memory error so I cleared the CMOS, then went in to the BIOS and changed the setting for the boot sequence. This is the first problem and I was able to load Windows. Problem is, since I cleared the CMOS, I have not been able to plug in my usb devices. They are not getting power or anything. They did before I cleared the CMOS but not now. What do I need to do to load them back? I do have the BIOS set to USB v1.0 + 2.0 turned on.
Has anyone else had this problem or know what I can do. I have the motherboard off the metal plat with the provided extension screws. I can only use my keyboard in the PS2 port. Any ideas at what it may be or what I can do? And how to do it? Thanks so much for your help. I am in great need of my computer back after almost 2 weeks without
Thanks in advance
Go into the BIOS and make sure that for some reason the USB ports have not been disabled within the settings. I have had this happen when I had to replace a CMOS battery once.
