USB Ports not working.

Hello all, 


Very vexing problem that I'm trying to fix; My p6240f does not have any, I repeat, ANY PS2 Ports so that I may try to get into the drivers to take a look-see. Currently I am trying to do everything short of going out and buying a PCI-e slotted PS2 or USB card because my video card is presently using it. 




BIOS/CMOS Reset by battery removal and CMOS jumper. Results? Nothing changed.

Installed a different, working front usb hub. Results? Nothing changed.


Just to clarify a bit: I have absolutely zero USB ports working fully and this wonderful machine that HP built and I've put sooo much money into has ... count them, zero ps2 connections to go all legacy on its ass.


Anywho, any and all advise is very welcome! Thanks for reading and hope to have you berating me about what I should do soon!

Re: USB Ports not working.

That'd be a nice trouble shooter but i have no PS2 ports to work with.
