  1. Hey Guys,

    my motherboard is an ASUS P8H67-M PRO i built my computer a few days ago and haven't really had any major problems but i noticed today when i turn my computer on there is a little message the top left hand corner of the screen i can really make it all out as it is gone in an instant but what i can make out is
    "No Devices"

    Does anyone know how to fix this? it doesnt make sense as my drives work fine and they are recognised inside the bios. The only issue i have had is i cam to install linux today and i received an error message saying CD/DVD + USB devices not found and i cant help thinking they are linked.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you install the chipset drivers?

    Are there any devices in Device Manager with a yellow ? or triangle next to it.

    What version of windows are you running.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the reply...

    I have installed the drivers disk which came with the motherboard if that is what you mean by chipset?

    checked device manager and there are no problems signs which you mentioned either.

    Im running windows 7 64 bit

    Are the CD and USB devices listed in the Bios and enabled?
