First of all, I would like to inform you that this motherboard has been out of support since December, 2012.
Also, Windows 8 is not a supported operating system for this specific motherboard therefore; there are no plans for making drivers. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-008326.htm
What I can recommend you will be to do some basic troubleshooting such as:
- - Test the system out of the chassis, minimal configuration please. (Motherboard, processor, power supply, 1 memory stick and video card)
- - Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery#datetime
- - Use another USB device just to discard a defective port.
- -Add more memory (RAM) to the motherboard if it’s possible.
Please take into consideration that it is always possible that third party equipment or components are not always (fully) compatible with Intel products.
The following link will show you the list of tested components on this motherboard.
thank you for your post. I went through every step you told me, unfortunately without success. I just bought a Seagate Back Up Plus USB hard drive, same issue as with the TV stick, the hard drive is beeing recognized as unknown device and not available as hard drive. I also installed my old Vista 32bit on a partition to check if it has to do with Win 8, and the results with Vista are the same, none of the USB devices that need more than 100 mA are working.
Now since my new PSU has been installed, all USB ports on the front of the chassis are not working due to that i unplugged everything from the main board to get the old PSU out and the technician who installed the new PSU didn't really do a good job and didn't reconnect the USB ports from the front panel. Do these USB ports have to be connected to the main board to make the USB ports on the back work correctly?
If you don’t might to do it, you can give it a try. I would recommend you to rollback to BIOS version 0319 and then try the USB TV sticks.
You would need to use the recovery BIOS method. Here is a link with all the instructions. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-023360.htm
Let me know.
