I came home yesterday and discovered that none of the USB ports work. I learned this when my keyboard did not function until I removed the USB connection and went with the adapter. I tried reloading the drivers, both with XP SP2 and the operating system software. I have an A8N-VM motherboard and the machine is fairly new. No other problems ever experienced, but not having these ports is preventing use of portable wireless device, pen drive, blackberry synch and any other number of uses.
I called ASUS and they said I might have to return the motherboard for warranty replacement. There must be a better solution.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
