I recently built a new computer. It is working great with one exception. The USB, microphone, and headphone ports do not work. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Those in front or in the back of the case?

First thing that jumps to mind is that the usb ports aren't connected to the mobo, which is probably why Mr Alpha asked if the ports were in the front or the rear (rear ports are hooked up "on board", front/side ports usually have to be connected to the mobo). Check to make sure that the ports are connected and if they are, that they are connected properly (you'll have to double check with your mobo manual for this). It would be the same thing for the headphone/mic ports too.

Also, USB has to sometimes be enabled in the BIOS. And check your drives in Device Manager to make sure that you don't have any problems with your soundcard.

Both the front and back USB ports do not work.

If there is something in the BIOS that must be set, please let me know what it is.
