I've started getting a "USB bandwidtth exceeded" message when windows loads. Usually the BIOS halts during startup cause it doesnt recognise the keyboard (only recitifed after i turn off pc, open case, replace case cover and turn back on again) but it doesnt happen all the time. I only have a Logitech Media keyboard, G5 mouse and router attached to my PC (2 at back and 1 at front). In total i have 8 USB ports (4 Front, 4 back). Running Win XP SP2. If anyone can help, would be much appreciated!
In Device Manager you can view the property/advanced page for the host controller to see bandwidth status. Pressing Refresh in the dialog box after making any changes updates bandwidth data to show whether bandwidth is freed.
Hmm, will try reinstalling etc. Though if my BIOS does'nt detect a keyboard it says "No keyboard present. Press F1 or Delete to go to setup" or course the keyboard isn't working, so, good advice ASUS! Anyways, I really dont think it's a USB 1 USB 2 problem cause the PC is brand new (<6 months) and the keyboard is new and so is the mouse (Logitech Media Elite and Logi G5). Can't be too many USB's attached cuz it's only 3 and the PSU is fairly decent. Will do what skidzy suggests n see what happens. V.puzzling and highly annoying problem! >:(
