Me again, Back with the USB issuie


Alright, it has to be something to do with the USB device, becuase sometimes during bootup it doesn't read either of my HD's, and sometimes it will boot and not read one of my drives as being there.

The only thing without a driver on my computer is this one thing.

Why not make it a warranty issue?

In reply to: Me again, Back with the USB issuie

If not, try the usuals.

1. VIA drivers. I don't see versions so they could be out of date. Remember, Microsoft doesn't update these, you do.

2. Power supply. With all that, your PSU could be on the edge. With what little I see in that list, try 500 or more Watts to be sure this is not the issue.

3. Install an PCI USB 2.0 card. The cheapest fix for onboard USB problems.

I am sorry to hear that, but your problem is really out of my field....

Ask a man from the support center to help you!
Your PC is new, I think the warranty is still valid for your case!

Hope they can help you!
