> 41A-Front USB 2 Not Connected.
> Front USB cable has been detached or unseated from the motherboard.
Your computer has USB ports on the front. Correct?
Your computer has various cables from the "back" of those front ports & LEDs & button(s) that connect to the motherboard. Correct?
One of those cables is intended to connect the front USB port(s) to a socket on the motherboard.
Gently pull on each of the cables that lead from the "back" of the "front" of the computer.
Do any of those cables come loose at one end or the other?
If so, you need to reattach the cable to its socket on the "back" of the "front",
or you need to connect - "seat" - the cable into the labelled USB socket on the motherboard.
Or, just press ENTER to ignore the error-message, and then do not try to use the front USB port(s).

I don't have front usb. The thing is I need to TURN OFF this post errors. (without pressing enter)
There is something that you are not sharing with us.
The original HP motherboard and the original HP case does have front USB ports.
What hardware changes have you made? Different motherboard? Different case?
Does BIOS SETUP for the HP motherboard have an option to "disable" the front USB ports?
This is often done for a "semi-public" computer, e.g., in a computer-lab at a school.
