Re: USB Problems
I understand, but open your case and at least re-seat the usb header, it can only go on one way and must be on all the way if you want everything to work. There are 2 or 3 places to plug the USB header in to, it can only go one way because it looks like a 10 pin header, but one pin is nothing so you have to match it up. It doesn't matter which of the 2 or 3 places you plug it in to as long as it's the right way and no pins are bent. Make sure your power is unplugged before doing this since it takes in a 5 volt charge.
If you're 100 billion percent positive they are on there like they should be, then go and check your BIOS options. Somehow one of your USB controllers could have been disabled, so make sure both USB Controller and USB 2.0 Controller are set to enabled.
IF you're still having problems, unplug all your USB items, and see if they work by themselves. I'm making this up and have no idea if this would be a viable trouble shooting option, but it's worth a shot right? It would be a plus to see if the computer is still recognizing them as you plug them in. Last thing I can think of is reinstalling your USB controller drivers.
