    No USB Devices Working Out of the Blue

    I was working on my setup last night.. Had usb wifi, my Lilli touchscreen, and usb thumb drive all working with no problems..

    Tonight I go to work on it some more.. No USB devices are working.

    My usb wifi card has a red light on it instead of green. My usb thumb drive lights up blue for two seconds and then shuts off. The touchscreen doesn't work.

    I have done nothing AFAIK.. Any ideas??

    Thanks

    How long did it work for before it stopped working?

    Could the devices be drawing too much power?

    After much troubleshooting I think it *may* have something to do with a setting in the bios.. Last night I enabled "APIC Mode" thinking it was ACPI.. I'm not sure if that did it or not but I read some google results stating if you change that setting after Windows is already installed you may have problems.

    I'm reinstalling Windows now..

    Well reinstalling Windows didn't work. WTH! I just have a hard time believing that the ports got fried..

    Sunday night I had a usb wifi card, usb flash drive, and my lilli touch screen all working with no problems. Last night I plug in only the usb wifi and it didn't work.

    I'm out of ideas...

    Have you tried just using one usb device? I'm sure you have but sometimes people can oversee simple problems.
