Evenin' all! That's a more chipper intro than I feel like proffering. I'm chucking this under the Windows banner because I couldn't find a suitable hardware option, but I don't know whether it's my multi-reader itself that's playing up or some other Windows tomfoolery. The only thing I can think of that might have caused this issue is me now deciding to hibernate (mostly) or sleep my PC when not in use in order to save electric/the environment/noise at bedtime. Anyway, after several cycles of said snoozing, I now find I can't read my USB stick or SD card through the front panel reader. Indeed, Dev Mgr says this: I've spent pretty much this whole afternoon trying to find a solution online and am not in possession of anything more clue-y. It's a standard multi-card plus USB 3.0 effort, connected by cable to the USB 3 header on an Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z. I've disabled all the USB power saving options (as far as I know); I've unplugged/replugged it whilst uninstalling it in Dev Mgr and rebooting; I've turned off Fast Boot; I've uninstalled and rediscovered all root hubs in Dev Mgr; I've tried reinstalling drivers both automatically and manually (using the Browse Computer -> Pick from list of available stuff on my machine option); I have no idea where to go externally to download a new copy of whatever driver is supposedly appropriate and I'm very cross because this was working fine yesterday. I also tried the Windows Troubleshooter, but have no option to even run hardware troubleshooting: So now what? Buy a new reader? Or is it the board - is there a diagnostic way of checking whether the USB header is working (not sure I have much else I can plug into it internally)? Anything else I can try? Appreciate any input as always - cheers team!
