Dell Dimension 9150
-Unplug the computer and disconnect all devices.
-Press and hold power button for 10 seconds to drain the capacitor to prevent electrical shock.
-Open computer case and locate the 3 pin jumper block (located next to the 4 SATA harddrive connection points on the motherboard). The jumper is blue and will be connected to two of the three pins on the motherboard.
-Remove the jumper block for a second then reconnect it back to it's original postion.
Is that a possibility?

Sorry but I`m not sure what you are referring to for the first part.
Hi, I tried the below but am still not getting any luck, I couldnt try the USB card in another slot though as the graphics card takes up the other slots, or could I just remove that?
Regarding the USB card and the video card, they are different types of card and so go in different types of slot, the video card is the PCI-E X16 slot and on your MB it may be black or brown in color, the USB card is the standard PCI type and your MB should have three of these type of slot which are generally white in color.
You may have another card in one of the PCI slots as system builders such as Dell often supply their machines with an Ethernet/NIC device so you have internet access, if this is the case remove that card and try the USB card in that slot.

Thanks for the update which is good news and a job well done on your part
Two things for you to check are whether the onboard USB ports have been disabled in the BIOS and the Device Manager to see if the USB ports are showing there and if they have a yellow ! or red X against them.
