Ok so I found that both ps/2 ports are combined into one box on the motherboard. Apparently that box went bad and fried my ports. Hopefully that isn't a sign of what is to come with my motherboard, as it is only less than 2 months old. My girlfriend went ahead and gave me my present early for our second year, which was the Microsoft wireless optical desktop elite set. So now my mouse and keyboard just run though the USB. As for my motherboard I am emailing the vendor today and am going to see what we can do. Thanks for you replies. I think I'll stick around for a while, this forum is awesome.
P.S. for anyone looking at this wireless set, it is awesome, the feal is great, is has excellent reception, has the side scroll option (which is pretty cool), has an additional scroll wheel on the keyboary, and is now on sale at Best Buy for 79.99.
