Hi,
Did you re-install the drivers also ? if so, they may need updating.

Make sure you load your motherboard drivers, many embedded USB controllers require them to function. If that's not the issue, try this little raindance to clean out all the mis-configured USB drivers and start fresh.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- cut here --------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"
-------------------------- cut here --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

The motherboard drivers are different from any USB drivers. USB drivers are included with 2K/XP, so those don't requre any 3rd party updates.

Download ' AIDA32 ' from this site, put a shortcut to your desktop, and when you enter it will tell you all you need about your system.

Well, the first question was downloading the MB drivers, you can do that from the manufacturer's site.

As for the DMA controller, use System Restore to go back before you ran this process. I find it a bit odd that happened, since I've used this procedure countless times without issues like that. I think there is some underlying registry corruption that we don't know about here...

I'd start by downloading and installing the latest MB drivers for your system.

Download Everest Home from here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

It will tell you tons of stuff about your system, including the make/model of the motherboard.

I am sure whether i am correct or not.I tried to download the driver from here:http://www.drivers.hu/drv_dwnload.php?id=11618.In the zip folder,there are 4 files,namely,V1212AG.Bin;V1214AG.Bin; V1218AG.Bin and note.txt.The details of the note.txt is: ARISTO AM-957 VIA-ApolloPro133 (ATX) Motherboard - Award BIOS
(VT82C693A+VT82C686A/686B)


V1212AG.BIN For Winbond (39A) Clock Gen IC
Dec/2000

V1218AG.BIN For Winbond (39B) Clock Gen IC
Dec/2000

V1214AG.BIN For ICW-W144 Clock Gen IC
Dec/2000

.2MBit (256KByte) Flash IC
.Added support on VIA South Bridge 686B
.Different BIOS files for different Clock Gen IC support


Remark :
======
Please identify the clock generator IC on your motherboard before updating the BIOS. Upgrading with a wrong BIOS file may result in failure to power up after the upgrade !

I can't figure out what all these files are for and are these the motherboard drivers?Pls advice.Thank you!
