    Hi, I'm new here! My first time! LOL

    I just upgraded the BIOS on my Intel D845GVSR mobo with supposedly the latest drivers. I used the Windows express install feature, as my machine doesn't have a floppy, just CD, DVD, card readers, and USB. After the install, (and I didn't touch my computer while it was doing this process), I noticed my USB mouse not working, and none of my card readers worked eithter.

    So, I called Long-distance to Intel tech support and went through the whole thing. They told me to download the *.bio file for the mobo so I can restore my BIOS... but I couldn't find the file for the right board, so I called them back, on a cell phone this time, and this time was told that the above mentioned might not work, and to remove the battery from the system, wait 20 mins, replace the battery and reboot, and this would reset the CMOS...well, I did that, and still no USB. I called tech support back, and they basically put me through the same procedure again....

    I'm very frustrated beyond description. What good is a comp if I don't have the USB ports to run printers, etc? I think my system is screwed! Thanks alot INTEL.

    There HAS to be a way to fix this!

    --Thanks Kokopelli3
