I thought an update was in order. After cleaning the computer and taking it
back to where I bought it to get a new motherboard installed, the technician
tested the usb ports and all 6 worked. Feeling sheepishly stupid, I thanked
him and returned home. After plugging everything back in, I booted the
computer and found kern.log was only being updated when inserting the usb
mouse into 2 of the 4 back usb ports. The front 2 did not work. After
sitting for a few minutes without knowing what to do, my Dad suggested
turning the power bar off and then on again. What the heck, I might as well
try it, I thought. After doing so, I booted the computer and presto! All 6
usb ports worked as they should. I'm still not sure why.
