I just finished upgrading to a Windows 7, motherboard, processor, video card and RAM. Now the 2 USB ports on the front of the tower are not functioning. They worked minutes before the upgrade. The USB ports in the back are still functioning.

When I slide the Cruzer Micro flash drive into the front SB ports, the orange light on the flash drive flickers for a split second, but that's it. When I plug the flash drive into the USB ports on the back of the tower, the flash drive works properly.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Simple, you need to hook up the 'front USB panel' connector's wires to the motherboard and you are good to go!

If you can look into your motherboard's manual, there should be some info on that.

If you've connected the wires, double check and make sure that they're not possibly reversed.

^ Yep, that too. :thumbsup:
Again, please do refer to the motherboard's manual.

I followed these direction in the manual, and the USB doesn't appear to be working on any of the three headers listed.

What model board are you working with? And is the BIOS a current version?

The guy who sold me and intalled the parts aslo installed a bootleg copy of Windows 7 on the HD I purchased from him, so I had him re-install all my original parts. Now I'm back as square one in the upgrading process.

The USB is now not working on my original system that was working minutes before I had this guy work on the system, so I can only assume the problem is within the actual USB port. This guy is real scum. I'm not going to worry about it now. I'm sure the problem will be solved when I buy new system.

Sorry to hear that, but there are still some rather less than honest dealers out there. Hope you were able to get your money back. Maybe all is not lost. What kind of board are we working with now?

You can find a manual for the board here:

D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals

The USB connections are addressed on pages 37 and 39. You might doublecheck to make sure they're connected properly. It's possible the guy working on the unit was a tad careless. Hope it helps.

The USB wires were connected properly. I've double and triple checked.

The USB ports seem to be part of a very small circuit board in the front panel. I'm begining to think there is a possibility it could be bad.

^ Yeah, I'm guessing that circuit board has gone bad.

Unless of course, you could check the same with a different motherboard.

I've tried it with two motherboards. A no-go. Seems like an easy fix, if I decide to keep this tower.
