There are 2 USB on this motherboard but the system does not see them. I found this out by putting a Jumpdrive in one and having nothing happen. I had a 4 port usb board adapter, installed it & there was no problem seeing it.   So I did the add new hardware and of course it didn't see it, so from the "Have Disk" list I tried a few to no avail. What's the scoop

Uo Ho No !!  It was a patch!!  and it had nothing to patche!   No I didn't test the Jumpdrive cause I know it wouldn't work. There is still no USB listed in the Device Manager.       OK       Back to the original question.

Check the BIOS to ensure the USB ports are actually enabled (should be in "Integrated Peripherals" section most likely) then they should detect.  Did you install the VIA Hyperion/4in1 drivers from www.viaarena.com/?PageID=300

What OS are you running?  XP? 2000? Win98?  Ensure you have the latest updates for your OS (i.e. XP SP1, 2000 SP4, etc).  Use Windows Update.

Nope, it doesn't look like it came through....were the ports disabled in BIOS, or did you need the Hyperion drivers?

It was the bios.!  I would have felt stupid except I'm too dumb to feel stupid. When thing are that easy and you try all the hard things first is why I'm in business. "I actually do computer repair!!  !!  !!"
Well there's one more thing to make me look like I know what I'm doing when I'm at a customers!

Pretty stupid that the BIOS defaults to disabling the USB ports too...oh well, that's MSI for you (I'd had some weird problems with them too; I have an MSI KT3 UltraARU board).

Well glad I could help!
