    If the usb port has shorted out, it may well have caused the rest of your problems. However, since I can`t see the actual problem myself, I`m not sure.

    The front usb ports are usually connected to the mobo via small wires and are actually part of the case, rather than the mobo itself. Do you have a spare usb port on the back of the case that you can use?

    Regards Howard :)

    yer theres 2 usb ports at the back of the case, one is connected for keyboard and mouse, My only thing is howard, why does it go on about usb port when I am putting chipset drivers in and yet nothing is plugged into usb port 2 and port 1 is occupied by the net.

    Like I said, if your front usb port is shorted, that could be the problem. However, as has been already discussed, it could also be a faulty Windows disk, or other hardware.

    Until the system has been looked at by a professional, we won`t know for sure exactly what the cause of the problem is.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hi,

    Are you able to find the drivers online? You can try searching in the manufacturer's official website.

    Hi,

    He's away for a few weeks due to house renovations. I think he left a post in the meeting spot informing the community.

    Thanks for offering to help.
