Just to confirm, You replaced the motherboard but did not reinstall the OS, you used the same hard drive with the original OS that had the USB issue?

Did the USB storage devices work on a different computer? You can't expect the OS to boot correctly when replacing the motherboard unless it is identical down to the chipset level.
If the computer can boot to Windows using the same hard drive and different motherboard download DeviceCleanupCMD. The file is called devicelceanupcmd.zip. Unzip the file to the desktop. In the unzipped folder should be a folder called X64. Copy this folder to the root of C:\. Do not download Device Cleanup Tool. Make sure it's Device Cleanup Cmd. If you have 32bit windows copy the Win32 folder to C:\.
Open an elevated command prompt. Type CMD in the search box. Right Click > Run As Administrator. Type the following commands
C:\ CD X64 If your Windows is 32bit then the command is CD Win32. devicecleanup *
This will delete all non present USB devices. Reboot your computer and attach a USB flash drive. Is it detected?
What is the make and model of the computer.
