I just fixed a friend's computer from a blue screen error and now I can log in to Windows XP, however none of the keyboards or mouses I have are detected. Do I need the original keyboard and mouse or is there something wrong with Windows XP? The motherboard doesn't even have a PS/2 port so I can't use those. What are some suggestions in fixing up this problem?

If the case has USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, use the 2.0 ports. Other than that, not sure.

This is a really old computer, so it's probably not even usb 2.0.

I've heard that sometimes it can take as long as 15 minutes for them to work in weird circumstances like this. Let it sit and go make a sammich? :)

Also, if you happen to have the CD for the motherboard, that should have all the device drivers on it...can you start in Safe Mode or anything?

USB 2.0 was released in 2000.
If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos

Unfortunately I don't have a CD for the motherboard. I guess I'll try that 15 min thing and plug two keyboards and 2 mouses and see what happens. I just hope that only needs the original keyboard and mouse to work on Windows XP since I did manage to fix the blue screen error.

It ends up detecting the mouse and keyboard, but it won't install the drivers automatically. The found a new hardware wizard pops up and I can't use that since no keyboard and mouse can use.

On Windows XP, I've had mouses that refuse to work until I manually install their drivers.
