evga 750i ftw usb ports stopped working
Posted on 2011-05-04
I have a evga 750i ftw mobo for almost 3 yrs now. The problem has been going on for a while and i dont remember when did it start. The only thing that connects to my usb port is the usb wifi adapter. The usb ports would stop working once a while (probably 2-3 weeks) and i would lost my wifi connections. the lights on the adapter is still blinking but there's no internet. when i tried changing the ports, the lights on the adapter goes off. I've tried plugging my usb stick drive to the ports at the same time to check if it's the usb ports and my computer is not recognizing the usb drive. the only way to "temporary" fix the problem is to reboot the pc. The usb ports will then go live again for another 2-3 weeks. This wasnt really a big problem until i get back into gaming lately.
I've tried updating the chipset, BIOS, and all drivers and none of them fix the problem. Please suggest any potential solution. Thank you.
