Hi,

got an Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard, just installed WINXP on the PC with it installed and it isn't detecting USB devices. The drivers for the USB come on the disk, but when you try to install them it says they're "not required" because I have service pack 1, and refuses to install it.

Any ideas on how to overcome this?

Thanks.

Head to ASUS's website here: http://www.asus.com and then get the latest drivers for your motherboard chipset. Upgrade to the latest service pack.

Try installing SP3 or SP2?

hi, thanks for the advice.

unfortunately I had no internet connection on that machine and also no way to put data on it from elsewhere (due to no usb- yeah) but I found a service pack 2 disk and installed that and it has sorted itself out.

was probably just a compatibility issue which was resolved with SP2
