USB's not working, unable to use any inputs
So I received my new motherboard with damaged USB 3.1 connector pins on the mobo. Asus was friendly enough to tell me that the warranty provided with the motherboard isn't actually a warranty, just a useless pamphlet preventing them from being sued, in other words, they won't do anything. My computer seemed to work fine with the damaged pins, excluding the case USB's. Well Windows decided it needed a software update and when I came back none of the USB's work, meaning I can't use my mouse or keyboard. It is extremely frustrating as I have tried using different keyboards to no result. I tried a power cycle, CMOS reset, all to no positive outcome. I am about ready to declare Jim dead, but I need any last minute expertise. (Normally I would just replace the mobo and move on with life, but I'm a broke college student who can't afford that).
Is this a good question?
