I have the Asus M4A88TD-M Evo motherboard with the AMD 880g/sb850 chipset and I wanted to use AHCI mode. I activated it in the BIOS and made a change to the Windows 7 registry and I got it working.

I downloaded these drivers from the AMD website:

         AMD Chipset Drivers
         AMD AHCI Driver
         AMD USB 3.0 Driver

The AHCI driver didn't get updated and my USB driver is updated but now not functional.

Now when I start my PC the mouse isn't working anymore and in Device Manager the USB controller is signed with a yellow exclamation mark.

How can I fix my USB controller so that I can use my mouse again? I've tried to remove the USB driver in the device driver and run the hardware detection but it just reinstalls the USB driver with the yellow exclamation mark.

When I install the driver it asks me to reboot and after the reboot my mouse isn't working. When I try to uninstall it it says nothing is installed.

you should go to Asus's website for updated drivers.

There is a USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver V2.0.4.0 for Windows 32/64bit XP & 32/64bit Vista& 32/64bit 7 available.

I have always gone to the Mobo manufacture site for drivers and have had the most positive results that way. Everything is laid out specifically for the board.
