Front USB


S

Skeleton Man

Hi,

I have an MSI 845GL motherboard, which works great, except I cannot get the
front USB ports to work at all ! (all 4 onboard ports work fine).

The pinout of the connectors is correct, as it's printed on the connectors
themselves and it matches that in the manual for the board. The only
difference is that both connectors have 2x ground wires, and the board has
1x USBOC and the other 'key' (no pin at all). I have tried the commonly
suggested trick of cutting the second ground wire, and it did absolutely
nothing !

The voltage coming from the board is correct (5.1V between +5V and Ground).

I'm running Windows 2000 SP4 and have the following under USB in device
manager:

1 x USB Enhanced Host Controller
3 x USB Universal Host Controller
1 x USB 2.0 Root Hub
3 x USB Root Hub

Any ideas ?

Regards,
Chris

On My intel board D875 there is a jumper setting to activate the front
USB connections.Only problem is that it disables the back ports.I have 6
ports in back and 2 in front.
