Windows 8.1 sometimes does not recognize the front USB 2.0 port on my machine. Any device that is connected to the front port are not even turning it’s light on. My mouse and keyboard work well and they are connected to USB 2.0 port on the back of the machine.
After restarting my system, USB 2.0 works again so it is not a wiring/connection issue that is comming from the case nor the motherboard issue. I think there is something wrong with the z77 chipset; does it even support Windows 8.1? I would be really surprised if it’s not. Everything works with Windows 7 so what’s the problem with Windows 8.1 and how do I fix it?
