I guess most of the A8N Sli mobo owners saw this patch in the download section. What puzzles me is this:

The label is "KB817900 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP", while the KB817900 article in microsoft is labled "USB port may stop working after removing or inserting USB device" and describes completly different problem.
See for yourself, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817900

One other thing.
The patch offered in download section is a registry entry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\usb]
"USBBIOSHACKS"=dword:00000000
"USBBIOSx"=dword:00000000

Only reference on the Microsoft support site regarding those values above points to the KB 841858 labeled "Description of how to enable the S3 system power state for standby when USB devices are armed for wake"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841858/en-us

Microsoft clearly says that USBBIOSHACK value is NOT supported and should NOT be used.
(Quote:"Another similar USB-specific registry value that is named USBBIOSHacks is unsupported and must not be used.")

I've tried contacting ASUS support regarding this when the patch became available, but I've received no reply.

My common sense tells me that the patch should be labeled "KB841858 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP" and should contain registry entry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\usb]
"USBBIOSx"=dword:00000000
