Default only one of my usb drives work...

well we had the computer unhooked for a while because it just got full of crap and we were going to get it blanked. so he hooked up the other computer and used that. we took the one to get blanked and we hooked it back up and only one usb drive worked. and i have usb keyboard and mouse. i managed to dig out my old keyboard so i can work the **** thing. but i want to plug my flashdrive in. and maybe even the good keyboard. so what do you think is wrong?

Have you tried reinstalling your chipset drivers?

You'll need to tell me the brand/model of the motherboard, then. If you don't know, then you can use this to find out:

http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpuz_146.zip

Run that (it doesn't have to be installed, its a standalone program that will simply run without installing), and then click on the Mainboard tab and post the Manufacturer/Model.

ECS Web Site

Scroll down to where it says "USB 2.0" and download the one from w/e country you're from (assuming you're from US, but that's just me assuming).
