HELP! I just built a PC and the USB ports don't work?

I just built a PC today and when I tried turning it on, everything turned on as it should. (Fans, lights, etc, etc). But I noticed that nothing was coming up on my screen when plugged into the HDMI and my keyboard/mouse wouldn't turn on when plugged in on the rear ports or front ports.

    Perhaps the motherboard is faulty, or the connector to the board from PSU is bad, not getting the +5V to board, or the PSU is bad.

    That is all that can be guessed from your details, which were almost nothing.

    Source(s): I was swapping RAM strips and accidentally knocked off the cable to MB that supplies power to CPU. Dumb! And after only 30 years building and repairing them.
