Basically I have no way of using a mouse or keyboard, just put the computer together today. Also tried switching the usb connector from 3.0 to 2.0 with no results. Can anyone help me troubleshoot?

What happened when you restarted the computer? Do you still have the mobo drivers disk for the computer?

Yes i have all driver disks and the OS is uninstalled. Related problem though, my monitor also is not displaying anything when I boot up the system. It says it is going to sleep because I have no keyboard or mouse plugged in.
Also I wouldn't think the mobo is damaged as it wasn't dropped or shorted or shocked by static.

So can you still boot and access bios from another monitor?

Both monitors I have access too gave the same thing... can't access bios because the monitors go to sleep. Hence my suspicion that there is a problem in the connection between gpu and monitor.

Do you have PS2 connector? Go old school and check the bios settings and drivers in windows.

Try plugging the monitors into the onboard connectors

I have a keyboard with ps2 connector, but it is not working either. It might be useful to add that when I plug in the usb receiver for my mouse it blinks very briefly and then turns off.

Ramalpan, I'm a bit new to this as well. Where are these onboard connectors? On the motherboard?

Alright, I reseated the ram (as I found out that can cause a host of problems) and everything seems fixed!

Thats good! The onboard ports are the display ports coming out of the motherboard and not the graphics card
