Are the cables from the USB header plugged into the correct part of the motherboard?

the graphics card covers the motherboard connectors from the look of it...

they should be on the bottom right of the motherboard.

At the bottom of that picture you have 3 blue USB connectors. Underneath them is written USB910, USB78 and USB56.
Those are at the very bottom of your motherboard and that is where you need to plug the cable from the front USB panel into.
Please try this and let us know if it's working okay:)

It doesn't matter which of the USB headers you plug into. They will all work:)

Are you SURE that the plug you are holding in the picture is coming out of the USB ports on the front of your case?
I have never seen a plug like that in a computer and what i said before are definitely the internal USB headers.
What is the name of your computer case?
Give me the make and model and i'll try and look up some information on it.
