A BIOS change can sometimes mess up a Windows installation. It's rare, but it happens.
This just came up in conversation between USBMan and me. In BIOS setup, go to the PCI section and enable "PnP OS", "Auto" and "Reset Configuration Data". Boot directly into Safe Mode and remove all USB devices from Device Manager - Root hub *first*. Remove all duplicate and old drivers.
Reboot normally. If that fails, try *disabling* USB in BIOS setup.
Go into BIOS setup and look for anything labeled
: I have a gygabyte ga-586sg motherboard with an award bios chip that i recently flashed (even though usb was enabled on the old version).
: Although my board has pin out for usb and Ive installed the appropriate user cable I still have no usb. In fact windows(98) does not show anywhere at all that I have usb.Not even in the device manager. Nowhere on my computer does it mention that I have usb.
: I have spent many hours trying to correct this problem,but to no avail. Hope someone in this forum can come up with a solution. Ive tried every thing I know....thanks
