8RDA+ and 8RGA+ - problems with K-B and Mouse

I've been having problems with both my 8RDA+ and 8RGA+ these last few weeks. Every second time that I did a re-boot the mouse wasn't working.

The problem was that I had a USB K\B, but PS2 mouse. If K\B and Mouse were both PS2, or both were USB, everything worked fine.

If however K\B was USB and Mouse PS2, lost the mouse every send re-boot without fail every time.

I don't know what the root cause of it is yet, but thought I'd post this in case anyone else is having simillar problems, as this was driving me nuts until I figured it out tonight.

I hve heard people say this before.

The only possible cause I can think of of is your PSu, which is pretty poor TBH. Do you have another you can try?

Cheers Holst -

Same thing was happening with a 350w Eagle, showing good 5v and 12v rails, and this Q-Tec 550w.

What's even more strange is that today on the 8RDA+, it was running fine with PS2 KB and MOuse, but I introduced a USB scanner to the P.C, and as soon as I did that, KB and Mouse stopped working every second boot again - Aghhhhhhh.

Seems that these MOBO's don't like a mix of PS2 and USB devices. Any ideas on how fix it would be great - ta...

Holst - built another rig for a mate last week with a 8RDA+ and same problem with his re KB and mouse if you mix PS2 and USB. That's 3 rigs now, 2 with 8RDA+ and one with 8RGA+, that's got exactly the same problem. I also notice from searching the forum that there are other posts with people having simillar issues, but no-one seems to have a definitive answer. Any ideas what I can try here, as I'm buying USB KB's and Mice in bulk!

Cheers...

hm....i have an idea...if you have the additional frontside USB ports plugged into the motherboard, try unplugging them. not sure what it may do, but its worth a try =). also, maybe you can play with the bios a bit....enable/disable usb keyboard, etc? lemme know
