USB Problem motherboard or case?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the Z75 motherboard. I also have the Corsair 550D case with 2 USB 3.0 front ports on the case. Recently for some reason, at least 50% of the time when I plug anything into those ports it hard locks the computer and I have to hit reset. Its driving me nuts. I'm not sure if its the motherboard or the ports on the case. Has anyone ever had an issue like this before? I've updated the USB drivers from Intel to the latest and still the problem exists. Funny thing is I upgrade to Windows 8 and I believe that's when the problem started. I don't remember this issue coming up on windows 7.

Thanks

Could be bad drivers, incorrectly setup BIOS settings such as XHCI handoff / power saving settings for usb ports, or it could even be a defective motherboard. (Or something I don't know yet). Windows 8 has native support for usb 3.0, so I think installing the drivers manually are not required.
