Default NF7-S: When running 220MHz-FSB USB Mouse doesn't work sometimes! :)

Hi,

just a bit of feedback. I encountered my first niggle with my new system.
About once a fortnight when I boot the PC my new MS-intellimouse doesn't
work. If I do an immediate restart all is well. I guess this is a side
effect of running a above spec FSB. I still didn't around to mounting a
heatsink on my Southbridge, but I suspect heat isn't a problem as the
machine is just booted when the problem begins (so Southbridge is fairly
cool).

SATA is working well as is the SoundStorm audio which are both Southbridge I
believe. I still don't have any fire stuff to test that yet. . .

Anyway no big deal, just thought I would share my observations.

Just a suggestion but do you have another PC you can use the mouse with

for
a couple of weeks to see if the problem remains. Also have you tried
re-installing the drives.




Hi David,

thanks for suggestions. Hmmm I never considered there may be a small
problem with my new MS USB mouse. I suspect the (tiny, tiny) problem may be
due to running the NF7-S FSB @220Mhz, but as I said it happens very rarely.
If I run the FSB @200MHz all is fine. As for re-installing drivers, I don't
use any drivers for the MS mouse except what is built into WinXP Pro SP1.
The two times I booted into XP and had no mouse there was no LED at all
shining out the intellimouse, like it wasn't receiving power, I tried to
remove the USB connector from the back of the P.C and then re-plug it in to
see if windows would pick it up, but no?. A quick restart and bingo its
back. Right now I am writing this post on my NF7-S with FSB 220MHz and its
working flawlessly, so as I said before this isn't what I would call a
problem, just like to share experiences with the rest of the group. .

cheers,

I am having similar mouse/keyboard both USB issues. But I need to work on a
few things before I comment.
I was having trouble before I started upping the #,s.

Hi,

just to confirm, my set-up works 100% flawless when running at stock 2500+
speeds and also overclocked 3200+ speeds (2.2GHz), the niggle only seems to
appear @220Mhz which is above the supported speed of the NF7-S. . .I too
need to test a few things out myself to remidy this but have been very busy
with my other career(photographer).

Hello,

I haven't had enough time running with this box to sort everything out and
the overclocking and XP (new OS) for me is making my head swim. Like you
have to earn a living and run a business (manufacturers rep for process
equipment) I am having some USB/PS2 problems. Seems the PS2 isn't working
but USB is. I have a wireless USB board and mouse one will work and the
other won't. I am tempted to reinstall XP It doesn't appear my SATA drivers
were installed and a clean install may clear up my other connection
problems.

Aspired to be a photog myself. Actually went to college and majored in it.
200 plus weddings ruined me :). Still have the speed graphic except for my
Nikon 995 all the rest has been sold or is junk.
