I have a Gigabyte 686 motherboard ( not sure exact model) I am running Win95. I am trying to figure out how to get USB support. The technician at the place where I bought the motherboard said that I should try to get a BIOS update. However, I don't see anything on Giga-Byte's page saying that this issue can be resolved with any of the upgrades. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the USB support with Win95. It does not load the Universal Hub the way it should. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!!

What version of Windows 95 are you running i.e.  
Win95
Win95A
Win 95 OSR/2 2.1
Win95 OSR/2 2.5?

To check and see what version you are running right click on my computer.

To support USB you must have Win95 OSR/2, or higher.

Win95 Version OSR/2 is an OEM release generally not availalbe to
the clone manufacturers.  Unless you 686 guy has an OEM agreement with Microsoft, like Dell or Gateway..you have a togh time finding the OSR/2 release.  By the way if it is packaged with the previously mentioned brand name computer..may you can find a copy and evaluate it.?

Your welcome!
