I have a Packard Bell iConnect 1700 with a Gigabyte GA-6WMM7 motherboard. One of the rear USB ports has failed, so I would like to use the two on the front panel. I thought there may be a mobo jumper to enable this so I looked at
but that says "There is support for 4 USB ports on the motherboard, all of which are active at the same time (thus no need for a USB selection jumper). "
But the two front ports I have are quite dead. Err... where to look next ?
What can cause them to be dead ? (They are connected to the mobo).
I did wonder if there was a BIOS setting but having consulted
I see that I have the only relevant setting (USB function) enabled.
Do I need to start checking voltages at the pins ? I'm rapidly getting out of my depth here.
