  1. I had to format/reinstall windows last night. Installation went fine, now I dont have any USB support. I installed the drivers for my logitech mouse thinking that would fix the problem but it hasnt. The mouse lights up when the comp boots up because i enabled USB devices in BIOS for bootup. However, when windows begins loading its drivers the mouse turns off and i cant use it. Any thoughts? I cant seem to find the right driver for the controller

    what version of wondows are you using? if it is XP then you need at least SP1 for USB 2.0 support without having to download the usb drivers from MS.

    if itis not at laest SP1 then that is the reason you dont have USB 2.0 support. did yu load the Motherboard drivers aftewr installing windows? your Mobo driver disk should either have the USB 2.0 drivers on it or a link to MS to download them.
