Monitor/USB Ports Don't Work after Windows 7 Install

Hello all,
I was rebuilding my computer bit by bit after my old one died on me. I recently purchased a motherboard/cpu and I used an old harddrive with windows xp on it and my old video card from my previous pc.

Everything worked fine, all usb ports were up and running, monitor worked great. Than I went to install Windows 7 on my computer from a usb thumbdrive.

(followed the instructions to a T from

Everything went smoothly until I got the the first restart. When the computer turned on again, all fans were turning, hard drive was spinning, and led lights turned on but my monitor went black saying no connection, and none of my usb ports work (no lights on my keyboard or mouse).

My computer specs are:

Motherboard: AsRock 970 Extreme3
CPU: AMD-FX 4100
Graphic Card: Zotac GeForce 9500GT
Ram: 2, 4GB (8GB total) Corsair Vengeance DDR3
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7
Monitor: Asus VH198T

Any advice on how to fix this will be great. Thank you in advance Cheers!
