Hello,
recently I have a problem with the USB ports in my desktop system.I have dual operating system-windows XP sp2 and fedora 8.0.What I have facing is that my computer is not detecting any USB device most of the time.In windows it is showing nothing ,not even an error messege.While booting fedora it shows usb1-1:device descriptor read\64,error-71.like that many lines for usb1-1,usb1-2,usb1-5,usb1-6,usb1-7,usb1-8.Again sometime system detects all usb devices as usually.Is it a hardware problem or software problem? How can I manage it?
I have tried Ubuntu live CD many times.there also USB devices are sometimes being accepted and sometimes are not.My motherboard is from biostar.I bought my system 2 years ago.Recently I did not have any hardware relacement or software installation or formatting the machine.

Hello Sir,

All you will have to do is to install the chipset driver for your motherboard,

You can download it from the biostar official website

Click here:

http://www.biostar-usa.com/downloadmain.asp

Select your exact motherboard model there and search for the driver,

Download the Windows XP version

Then install and restart your computer,

Do not use the front USB ports, use the back one

Thanks
Thank you for your response.But I didn't find proper chipset driver in that website. My motherboard model is NF61MIAM2,chipset MCP61V.
Again I have a question.If the problem is in the driver ,so why the ports are not working in fedora?
