I've been working on a custom PC for several days now and until now, it has been working perfectly fine, with no problems what so ever.
Today I tried to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7.
When it finally came round to setting it up, I noticed none of my usb ports worked anymore, so I am unable to set up Windows.
I've tried every port on my PC and NONE work. I also tried connecting a mouse through PS/2 but that doesn't seem to work either.
I pulled the battery on the motherboard to reset the BIOS settings which I set up again to get my PC to the setting I want. But still no luck
I am able to connect a USB Hub on early stages of boot up so I can access the BIOS settings, but as soon as the OS starts to boot, the Hub seems to disconnect (not turn off) from the computer.
So I'm left wondering, could my chipset have a USB power problem? Or maybe a signal problem?
Please help me as I'm hoping to finish this project before I go back to collage
