First make sure the proper drivers for USB are installed and not corrupted If they are you have three choices--1. Replace the motherboard (expensive) 2. Install a USB IO card in one of your io slots.(about $20 + shipping) 3. Use USB to PS2 adapters to connect your keyboard and mouse to the computer.

Also check your BIOS on start-up and make sure that your USB ports are enabled...
