I recently bought a Zalman Z7 plus case. I moved all of my components into it without a problem. I double checked all of my wiring and made sure that everything was hooked up correctly. When i powered it up, everything started fine and i got into windows, but i noticed that none of my usb ports or PCI slots were getting power. That means no mouse, no keyboard, no internet, etc. I checked all of my wiring again, and found nothing wrong. My computer specs are in my sig and i am running Win7 Ult. 64bit.
Also, i ONLY changed the case, no new parts or anything.
I cleared the CMOS and set the BIOS settings back to default and still nothing helped.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you do a fresh install of windows?

You might want to look into updating the BIOS firmware =/

Sometimes they ship the motherboards early before all the kinks have been worked out of the firmware...happened to me a couple times (especially with higher-end systems where they want to one-up the competition and due dates are more important that functionality)
