USB ports dont work

Hello all,

 

So I recently got an MSI RX 6600 XT and a 760 watt PSU for my build. I realized that my current rig was bot compatible due to the motherboard and the PSU in that (it was meant for servers). So I switched to my first rig with a normal motherboard and just swapped out the hardware. Everything is pulled in and working...except the USB ports.

 

I can't set up the computer without my keyboard, which is USB. I have tried every USB port on my computer and not a single one worked. Any suggestions/fixes? I've attached 2 pics of where I think the problem may be at.

You've tried every USB port? Even the onboard ones in the I/O on the back?

How old is this motherboard? It appears to have SATA II and CD Audio, both of which haven't really been a thing in quite a while. Try upgrading your Chipset and other drivers from the Motherboard manufacturer's website, if they have any even available for Windows 8 or newer.

I'm not sure how old the motherboard is. It works fine when I plug in my USB mouse. Keyboards just dont seem to work. I'm gonna try to find a serial input keyboard

What keyboard do you have?

Did you try connecting your keyboard to other system? Even to a laptop

My first system that I was using it works fine on. I believe it's an older keyboard.

Check if there are some missing drivers - Win+X » Device Manager - is there any exclamation/question marks?

Can I do this on another device? Cause my computer wont recognize that ths keyboard is plugged in. It doesnt recognize any keyboard I plug in.

Sry, stupid me. If you have Windows 10 - right click on Start menu and then select Device Manager

No like I'm stuck on this. I cant enter setup without a working keyboard and my computer sees that my mouse is plugged in, but not a single keyboard will register.

Yes. My SSD has all my files but the system needs to boot to the new hardware.

Have you tried a PS/2 keyboard?

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.
