actually, everything in there "looks" ok....I think it is working properly from an operating system perspective

Once again I come back to the idea of hardware. But, what hardware? Do you have or no anyone who has, a powered USB hub? Do you have a second computer?

My thinking is two-fold.

Your USB devices are powered with 5 volts--your power supply supplies three ranges of power--12volt, 5volt, and 3.3 volt. Very few things use the power supply's 5 volt rail. In fact, all that comes to mind is the power swith (used to be videocards used it as well) If your power supply cannot sustain 5 volts, or is supplying less than 5 volts, it may be the cause of your devices not working...they are simply not getting enough power.

A powered usb hub might show us if this is the case, or barring that, I would swap power supplies with another machine and see if the situation recurs

Sorry it took so long to reply, our video card stopped working and the monitor wouldn't work so we had to get a new one. We don't have a second computer. "I would swap power supplies with another machine and see if the situation recurs" what do you mean by this to take out the part where the power goes in?
