Default USB/PS2 Probs on Motherboard

Greetings, everyone!

This is my first post here so I'll try not to sound too stupid.

I built my computer and everything was going alright. Then all of a sudden my wireless/keyboard mouse combo decided to stop working. When I decided to try to restart the computer, I can access the BIOS using the keyboard, but about 5-10 second after Windows startup, the mouse and keyboard refuse to work. This is true for only the PS2 port.

Currently the PS2 port provides power for the keyboard/mouse transmitter, but the keyboard/mouse only works sporadically. When I try to plug in a USB jump drive while the computer is on, there's a brief flash of power, but then nothing. This is true for all of my USB ports. I tried another wireless keyboard/mouse combo that I knew worked on another computer and that didn't help either.

I would appreciate any and all troubleshooting ideas.

Here is a listing of my parts:
