so you couldn't get in with ps/2 keyboard either?
spam delete immedietely after you turn it on
does the keyboard led light up after you plug it in? is it getting any power at all from the computer?
reset cmos often when you trying to fix

Did you try "If that fails try to pull the CMO's battery, or if your board might have jumpers on the board that have to be moved for the stuff to work" from what I've said in my first post of this thread?

Have you tried a different keyboard?
Make sure you have the USB connectors in the right spot. A lot of motherboards have two areas for USB, a USB1 and a USB2 (not version just means there are two spots).
Try a USB expansion card, it is possible that what USB ports you are using are malfunctioning and don't work.

Check the USB connections on the mobo. Could be they are not solidered correctly and shorting out.
