My thermaltake armor case has 2 usb ports on the top but if i plug them into the motherboard the computer will not boot at all - no lights, no beeps, fans dont spin, nothing at all. As soon as i unplug them it works fine. I installed all the motherboard drivers.

Also whenever i have my usb keyboard plugged in during boot up it gets to the windows loading screen then restarts and keeps doing this forever. It doesnt do this with my usb mouse, printer, or hard drive which are all always plugged in.

This usually means the ports in question aren't wired up properly OR there is an issue with the ports in question.

Wiring is typically red, white, green, black with black next to the missing pin, then same again on the other half of the block.
