The first thing to check is that USB support is enabled in the BIOS.

remove usb's
remove mains cable
press and hold on/off button for 10 seconds
plug power cable back in
switch on and tap F2 to get into BIOS
press right arrow key to get to advance tab
press enter on advanced CMOS set up
set event logging to DISABLED
press enter on MARK DMI events AS read and select YES
press escape once
Highlight plug and play set up and press enter
set plug and play aware O/S to yes
set clear NVRAM to yes
press escape once
Press F10 then enter to continue
let the PC load into windows as normal
