I’m a Windows 10 user, but was willing to try a new OS, so I picked Zorin OS because it looked pretty nice. (I had some issues installing it, but I think that’s related to the issue bellow)
I’m using a somewhat old hardware:
- Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P
- AMD FX-6300
- Corsair 4GB DDR3 667 x2
- GTX750 1GB.
But for some reason, I can’t get it to make both USB work at same time.
I checked the BIOS, and there are some options about USB:
- Enable Leacy USB, which is enabled.
- Enable USB 3.0 Support, also enabled
- XHCI Handoff/EHCI Handoff, workarounds for USB2/3
-XHCI enabled, EHCI disabled: USB 3.0 works, USB 2.0 don’t.
-XHCI disabled, EHCI enabled: USB 2.0 works, USB 3.0 don’t.
-Both enabled or both disabled: no USB works on Zorin.
I tried to reset the BIOS to Recommended Settings, but no success.
I tested the USB ports that wasn’t being recognized by Zorin OS with a MatisTek USB Doctor (a very USB multimeter), and there was energy even was able to charge my phone. Just not recognized by OS.
I’m sure all USB (on motherboard) are working properly because I have no issues on Windows 10. The problem is that this motherboard has two USB 3.0 only. (front panel was overused over 5 years and sometimes doesn’t work properly, so I unplugged it)
Any idea how to make it work properly on Zorin OS 15? (For now, I have no USB 3.0 port working on Zorin OS)
