that this has started to happen since you installed Vista?

The Vista installer runs a system analyser before it starts, and warns you of any detected hardware conflicts or issues - did you check the report?

Hi there is no error report when i switch on, and this is a newly built pc which has its first install which was vista home premium, i just dont know what to do, i have build several pcs with no problems and this is the first snag, and its wired correctly and all set up perfectly.

there may be a motherboard fault on the USB ports. One sure way to check is to plug in a spare USB card, and then plug a USB device into that. If it works you know there's a USB port fault.
