I'm not new to computers but am new to building them. I just finished building my first...and have already run into problems. I can't seem to get the USB ports to work. I have a wireless mouse/keyboard set that uses the USB ports as well as the monitor. Everything seems to be plugged in correctly but I get no response from anything. I'm hoping that its just something I did wrong or something and its not a dead motherboard or anything.

This is the motherboard that I have.

MSI P43 Neo3-F LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard

Any help or thought would be great.

You will probably need a "regular" keyboard to do this.
Start the computer & go into the BIOS setup.
Locate the USB & see if it is enabled .
See if it is enabled for "legacy" support
See if it has a listing for USB Keyboard & mouse , if so make sure they are enabled.

Since it is a new build you should have a manual for it.
Look in the maqnual for the BIOS settings.

If you don't have a manual go to the MSI site & download it.

One other thought,

Does your USB mouse & keyboard have to be "synchronized" ?
Mine has a little button on the receiver,KB, & mouse
I had to hold the button down on all 3 at the same time for several seconds to get them to work .
