I just installed XP Pro and I can't get the two USB plugs on the front of the PC to work. The two on the back of the PC (built onto the mobo) work fine, but when I plug something into the ones on the front, nothing is detected and nothing happens. They were all working fine before I installed the OS. Also, I tried the mobo mfctr's website (giga-byte) but couldn't find anything.

Incidentally, the device manager shows four USBs (two marked "USB Root Hub" and two marked "VIA Rev 5 or later USB Universal Host Controller." All show as working but I selected Update Driver on each just in case. The Update Wizard responded that it "could not find a better match for [my] hardware than the software currently have installed."

HOW CAN I GET THIS TO WORK! :confused:

Yes. SP1 came w/the disk and all updates have been installed. I also installed the drivers from the mobo disk.
Still not working. Any other suggestions?

There will be two grey colored cables coming from the front of your case. These are probably not attached. If you look on your mobo, or the manual, you will find the proper connectors to attach them to.
