Default not recognising usb ports

Windows XP isnt seeing my USB ports, its the first time ive tried to use a usb device on this machine, it is XP with SP2, have tried installing new hardware and scanning for them in device manager but it just wont see them, have also enabled USB options in the BIOS.... any ideas???

Thanks in Advance,

did you install the chipset driver?

edit also if the device you connected have an on/off switch.. and also if it have a power cord.. , i know it sounds kinda stupid but maybe i have a point..
