Asus Rampage IV and Win10 USB problems

by rexferal / July 1, 2016 8:01 AM PDT

Has anyone else had a loss of USB ports since being forced to use Win 10? If so, have you solved the problem and how did you do it? I feel Asus is being purposely obtuse.

First of all, nobody is forced to use Windows 10. There has been a lot of publicity, including here on CNET, on how to disable it and keep using Windows 7 or 8.1 without being asked to upgrade. And for everybody there's the option to go back in 30 days.

I find https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1013093 rather clear on what models support Windows 10 and what models don't. Assuming your model is listed as supported, what do you mean wiht "obtuse"?

Asus Support

Alas, the solution to forced migration came too late or I just plain gave in to the constant nagging. Microsoft must have hired my ex-wife. I have already looked up my MB on that support page which says it is supported, but isn't. Please don't think I came here asking for help without searching, reading and attempting all fixes suggested. I was just hoping someone with the same problem and solution could help. I have attempted to contact Asus Support, but they want serial numbers and I'm just not going to start tearing down my full tower. I used to be good at this, but I'm 62 years old with failing eyesight. I appreciate your attempts to assist me but I just went and bought a USB hub, shouldn't of had to but I'm just plain tired of this.

Yes I ran into this.

But not forced! However it was another motherboard and I had to go find motherboard drivers.

All good now.

As to obtuse, a lot of folk are completely taken aback or lost when it comes to drivers. But what you are looking for are the motherboard and possibly USB drivers.

Wish I could be exact here but I deal with it a lot. Be at this for far too many years.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
