well if you read my previous post in this section ... i did fry a motherboard because i purchased a new one ... a8n32sli deluxe and everything worked fine. after downloading 70+ updates including the latest forceware drivers and firefox i took a nap. I then decided i would go ahead and attach my other video card and soundblaster audigy zs platinum. Fired the computer up again and well ... it now freezes at the windows login and does not recognize the keyboard or mouse ...both usb ...but it shows in the usb bios section that it recognizes 1 mouse and one keyboard. what gives here? i took out the video card and soundblaster... tried again ..same crap. even in safe mode.
