I just upgraded my computer yesterday. I replaced the motherboard, ram, and video card. I tried reflex this evening and it won't recongize the usb interface. Windows says the usb device has malfunctioned and that windows does not recognize it. Seems like it doesn't know about a needed driver for the interface. Do I need to reinstall reflex for this to work again?

It sounds like you replaced the motherboard but kept your original hard disk intact (i.e. you didn't reformat and reinstall).

If so I should warn you that generally this is not advisable unless the new motherboard is identical or near identical to the original.

This is because the motherboard is associated with many system level drivers such as disks, ports, USB, bridges etc. These can vary between motherboards particularly if they use different chipsets e.g. VIA versus nforce.

If you just reboot the disk with the new motherboard then windows will do it's best to sort the system out but you are often left with a confused Windows - USB could be just the tip of the iceberg.

As I said the general recommendation is to do a clean install, but failing that you should boot with the WIndows install disk and do a 'Repair Install' - just booting the disk and leaving WIndows to cope is not recommended.

You should not have to reinstall Reflex, but I suspect that the way in which windows handles the on-board USBs is screwed - you can check this by seeing whether other USB devices work.

You could try going into device manager and removing the USB controllers - then restart and see whether windows can pick up the correct drivers - have MoBo CD to hand.

Alternatively, if other USB devices work then try reinstalling Reflex - can't do any harm and its quick.

I'm about to buy a new motherboard and I want to keep my hard disk intact because I have windows, applications and data stable - so I've got all this to come.

Cheers,

Nigel

You could try popping the reflex cd in the drive and exploring it.
then right click the file called reflex.inf and choose install then unplug and replug the usb interface.

Probably your new motherboard came with a CD with the Network drivers, usb ect. Run this cd install this drivers and the windows software should recognize any new device in the motherboard. (i.e. USB's)

So I did do the Repair Installation. Before I did that Windows wouldn't even boot. It would give the screen that says it didn't shutdown properly and ask me to choose if I want safemode and boot normally. Every option led to a reboot. THe repair installation fixed this. I have installed the motherboard drivers, however, I didn't try the obvious and make sure other USB devices work. I'll try this once I get home.

Thanks,
Ryan

This isn't working on the upstairs computer either. I think something bad has happeded to my USB link. I'll have to see if MRC will replace it. Hopefully I won't have to send it to Germany. I've got an upgraded computer and the XTR disk sitting on the desk, so it kinda sucks.
