ASUS K8S-LA (Salmon) Motherboard

This is the motherboard that came installed in my HP a810n PC, so I have no drivers to manually reinstall, HP nor Asus provided from none for download that I could find. I found to sites that had the drivers and required sign up, but had registration issues when I attempted :thumbsup:

I uninstalled and through device manager let Windows reinstall the drivers or update them via Windows update, they still won't work, the USB devices do operate on other PCs.

Oddly, before I repaired my PC 2 days ago after boot.ini ( Previous Issue: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...amp;pid=1079282 ) mishap the usb devices worked fine in the LiveCD environment, but stopped working once Windows was recovered.

Using a ps/2 mouse in the meantime and unplugged all the usb devices.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Your drivers: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...069&lang=en

It seems that they make it easy to get a complete set of recovery CDs for your system, I would suggest that you take advantage of the opportunity.

Thank you Louis. I actually created a set of recovery CDs when I first got it, but I wouldn't mind ordering a cleam backup. Which one of those drivers is for the USBs and IEEEs? I've tried some of the stuff on there and i guess I'm chooseing the wrong stuff. I also found a Spring 2005 original driver set but its and exe that windows wont let me install. It prompts me to use the drivers on the C drives HP folder which are the issue lol.

I wonder if I can extract the files from .exe installer?

I don't have an HP system so I can't tell you anything about their drivers. But according to this, it's all governed by your XP SP: http://www.motherboardpoint.com/t22607-nee...paq-system.html

Now that I think about it, that link makes sense :thumbsup:.

Thank you Louis, lol, how confusing, bwaah :thumbsup:

I'm reading very thouroughly right now. I'll be back to let you know how it goes. I did extract those files from that exe though, and none were the four associated with at least the USB, not even including the IEEE and whatever that floppy is.

usbhub.sys
usbohci.sys
usbport.sys
usbui.dll

in: system32\DRIVERS\...

i think, BRB, I have: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP2

Don't really know what that's suppose to mean, but I'm headed to read...

If I am understanding properly, USB drivers are like optical drive drivers...they are generic and are supplied by Microsoft during install of the O/S.

The USB support started with SP2 (from what I read), so if the install does not reflect SP2...it needs to be installed before USB 2.0 support can be enabled/take place.

Well Louis I don't know how we did it but however the explanation went my subconscious translated it into a nondestrucstive repair install with the slipstreamed SP2 CD.

For anyone that doesn't know how to do that I will post instructions when I get home. I'm typing from my Pocket PC.

Yaay. Another Bleeping Computer Victory!
