    Default Post reformatting - won't recognize USB or sound hardware

    I reformatted a custom made computer ( i.e. I can't tell you a brand). I installed Windows XP Home edition. Post reformatting I can't get any of the USB ports to recognize anything. My main purpose is to get a USB wireless device to work. However, I have determined that none of the three USB ports will recognize a jump drive or anything. Additionally, the computer won't recognize any audio hardware I plug in either. It has no sound and gives an error that it does not see any audio hardware.

    I have changed the setting on the universal plug and play to be automatic, but it still did not help.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!!!

    Check with the manufacturer of the motherboard - you'll need to download the usb drivers from their site.

    Motherboards generally come with a CD with drivers and other software for on-board sound, graphics, Network, monitoring etc.
    if you don't have the CD then as stated you will need to get all the drivers and software from the MOBO makers site.
    They may even have a replacement CD.
