    Ok. Tried this. Still apparently using Windows 8.1 annnnnd.... USB2 still does not work.

    Gave "Remove everything and re-install windows" a try too. Still Windows 8.1 and broken USB.

    It was all up to date before I nuked it the first time. BIOS is up to date. Re-running the other ASUS updates now, which includes Intel chipset and Broadcom drivers. I have only KB2919355 from Windows Update left to install, which is a 430Mb update. Hope that will fix it tbh....

    Are you using a cable to plug in your USB device, if so is it a USB2 cable?

    Is a thumb drive. Plugs straight into the side, no cable used. Tried it with a cable. Still didn't work. I have a few USB devices strewn around the room, so gave them a go.

    -- Works fine --
    USB3 WD My Passport drive (by USB3 cable)
    USB3 WD My Passport Ultra Drive (by USB3 cable)
    USB3 WD Essentials (it's unlabelled) (by USB3 cable)

    -- Does not work --
    USB2 Kingston DT160 Thumbdrive
    USB2 Unbranded HDD caddy (by USB male to male cable)
    USB2 Logitech MX1000 Mouse
    USB2 Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500
    USB2 Samsung My Story 2Tb desktop drive (by Mini USB cable)
    USB2 Samsung S4 (any mode) (by micro USB cable)
    USB2 Three Mifi dongle (by micro USB cable)
    USB2 Asus Transformer (by Asus specific cable)
    USB2 Lexar Firefly thumb drive

    -- Not even recognised --
    USB MS Sidewinder joypad

    I am sure I can dig more devices out of a cupboard if you want me to try them.

    Other than resetting your BIOS settings to Default I am unable to assist you further. Someone else on this forum may have the answer.
    Perhaps would be an idea to post your problem in the Asus T100 forums.

    Please advise us if you have found the solution.

    Okies. Thank you for all your time and effort. I will reset the BIOS (tried just about everything else). [Edit] Still didn't fix it [/edit]

    If I figure it out, I will come back.

    Cheers

    Cavey,

    Not sure If you figured it out yet seeing it has been a year. Hopefully this will help someone else. I have seen many solutions online, but my solution is for the same symptoms you were having, these are the steps.

    I just clicked on both of the sub titles under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers"

    On the top tabs, there is a label "Power Management" check the first box saying " Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

    Uncheck on the usb port under.

    Hope this helps,

    God BLess

    Andrew
