I have a VIA chipset, jumperless SS7 mainboard. Problem is, the BIOS shows USB support, there's a USB chip on the board (right next to the sound chip, in fact), but there are no jumper pins off the board for me to connect a USB backplate. Do I need a busmaster card specific to the board, or is the USB support on the BIOS superfluous to requirement? Also, same problem with the built-in sound. Chips are there, BIOS shows support, they both install as PnP devices under win98SE. No pins. I've tried installing a 4-port USB card into the busmaster slot on the mainboard (PCI slot 1), with no success. Windows doesn't even detect the card. The driver that came with the card is no good, as it can't detect the card without the card itself being connected to the USB master(??). I'd assume that that means the card can only be used where mainboard USB is detected, installed and available. Obviously without pinouts to a backplate, this is a bit impossible. HELP!!
