Re: ASRock Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard not accepting mouse and keyboard
Check the PCBs of your motherboard, there will be a jumper behind the USB port. You can try changing its position. I suggest that you should try 1-2 to 2-3 or vice versa. Did you check the version of BIOS the motherboard has? Maybe it is the BIOS that are causing the problem. You can try updating the current BIOS of your motherboard. If still the problem is not solved you can try downgrading the BIOS. Find the stable and proper version that will work with your motherboard and flash it in your motherboard. When flashing the BIOS, see to it that you use a pen drive of FAT32 system and not the NTFS system. The motherboard will support pen drive only up to 4 GB. So do not use external hard drives. After the BIOS are flashed, you can disable the USB mouse and keyboard ports. It will accept the generic mouse and keyboard. Chances are that the keyboard might not be accepted by the motherboard again. But I can confirm that the mouse will work properly. Once on the login screen of Windows, you can use on-screen keyboard to login. Once Windows is started, you can connect the keyboard and update the drivers it requires. Now your keyboard will too start working. If you face this problem again, that is, when you plug out the mouse and keyboard, you will need to overclock the motherboard. I canít say overclocking will help, but you can try it out.
