Hey OCN.

Archduke here again. I'm working on a build with a friend who's new to computer building. He recently transferred his rig from an old Antec 1200 that I was lending him into a shiny new Corsair 600T (White). I didn't supervise this build, but he called me today complaining that none of his USB ports were working. He said that after he finished the build, he tried to start it up and it would do the auto-shutdown thing like his 8-pin CPU power wasn't plugged in properly. He reseated his 8-pin cable and the computer started up with no problem, but the USB ports still don't work.

I went over to check it out. The USB ports are powered -- the "lock" buttons on the keyboard light up, but the peripherals don't function. I can't get into the BIOS as a result because we don't have a PS/2 keyboard at our disposal.

Things I've done:

- Inspected the wiring. It seems to be in order.

- Reset the CMOS. No effect.


I have a PS/2 keyboard at home, which I guess I can go get, but I suspect that BIOS settings aren't the culprit.

What else can we try?
