I'm building a system for a friend. Here's what's in it:
- Intel DP35DP Motherboard
- intel q6600 2.66
- Transcend 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 800 RAM CAS5
- 2 X Western Digital Caviar SE16 320 Gig
- Koutech 4-Port FireWire 1394a/1394b PCI Express (x1) Card
- Rosewill RD600N-2DC-SL-SLV ATX Form Factor 12V V2.2 / 12V 600W Active PFC Power Supply
- EVGA 256-P2-N412-LR GeForce 7100GS 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16
- 2 X SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-S203B
Here's the problem. I install Windows XP Home on the system. Everything works fine until I install the chipset driver. When the machine reboots none of the USB ports work anymore. This really sucks because the DP35DP doesn't provide PS/2 mouse and Keyboard support... only USB... so I'm not able to do anything after I install the chipset driver. I've tried installing the Chipset driver first, middle and last and it makes no difference... as soon as it's installed the USB port don't work... I get no power to either mouse or keyboard. I initially thought that this was a bad Motherboard and sent the first one back... got a brand new one and get the same problem.
When installing the operating system I needed to create a custom windows install disk fdor the SATA drivers. I got a pack of drivers from this site:
And slipstreamed them all into the install. I mention this cause I suspect a driver conflict... Is this possible?
