If a usb 3.0 port is damaged will 2.0 devices still work?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I own this http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z77V_PROTHUNDERBOLT/

I am using this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992010 with the 3.0 header

Bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226253 I noticed first the computer would shut down entirely when I plugged it into the right USB port.

Anyways I ordered another NZXT APERTURE M to test if it is the port/header (or the usb flash drive) any thoughts on other tests I can do?

Now the flash drive doesn't even work if I plug it into the right usb port, but 2.0 devices still do. This is utterly perplexing me.

If it is truly damaged, I wouldn't plug anything into it. If it is under warranty, swap it for a working one. Or look at the port and see if you can see any damage on the prongs. Or try another device just to make sure, but be very careful. I just know I wouldn't want something faulty in my pc. I would rather trash it or send it in and get a new one. Rather then messing something up on the board from a add on part. I'm also guessing you installed the 3.0 drivers for the ports? Thanks

Yea I installed all the drivers

The usb 3.0 ports all work except as I explain above. But I'm unsure if it's the mobo header or the actual port itself. I have no way to check it until I get the new NZXT module. I suspect the header may be messed up, but how to know for sure idk What's more likely, header is damaged or usb port itself?

UPDATE: The new one worked fine, the old one had a usb short somehow frown.gif At least all is well now
