I have yet to have any problems with the USB subsystem. Every thing I have
plugged in has worked like a charm. My old peripherals, new stuff. Zero
problems. Now a problem I DID have on one of my old system boards, was the
chipset was a bit wonky. Old Tyan Tiger 133. Ports wouldn't pick up half the
time, and this was under XP. Tried everything. Chipset drivers, drivers in
XP, etc. Wound up just having to pop in a USB 2 card.
My POS Acer under Vista. Not one problem at all. Even picked up the hub on
my NEC monitor. This may be something (mobo chipset) you want to look into.
One thing also to remember. MS does NOT write the drivers. The mfr does.
Might be better served screaming at them.
