Sudden Multi-Failing USB Ports


Posts: 12,015   +82
My current system was built in May of 2012 and has been rock solid until like now.

I have had 4 out of 6 USB ports fail on me at once. I can't scan, can't print and the only two that are working I have both my mouse and keyboard in them because I had to transfer them yesterday the ones I had them connected to for almost 2 years. My printer was working fine yesterday and then that port failed today. I have tried booting and rebooting to no avail.

The motherboard is a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H. If anyone can recommend to me a good solid Z77 board I'd appreciate it because if the last two ports go I won't be able to use my keyboard or mouse and then I'll have some real grief to deal with.

Any ideas would be most appreciated.



Backup immediately your important documents.
Plan B is a bluetooth mouse and KB until it gets sorted out.

Thanks jobeard. As per Gigabyte I tried using my keyboard in the failed ports while in BIOS and in Safe Mode. The keyboard failed to work in both as well so Gigabyte is sending me an RMA.
