disk on keys not recognized

I just installed a fresh installation of windows 7 ultimate.
and my computer doesn't recognize any usb flashdrives\disk on keys.
It does recognize the printer and mouse and camera which are usb connections.
But the usb disk on keys it does not recognize and they do work on other computers.
really need help, just installed the windows 7 so it's really weird. and I did use different usb connections to the disk on keys and it's not that.

If you are working a old Win 98 motherboard & not the MB in your Specs.

You will need to install a USB 2 PCI card.
USB 2.0 5 Port 41 PCI Card : PCI : Maplin
