USB and Ethernet light not working

I'm sorta in a jam. I have a dell Inspiron from 2010 desktop of and today when I turned it on it went through all the boot up sequence normally. I try to login but I can't the USB mouse or keyboard are lighting up since the mouse is a laser and the keyboard has the num lock light. I go to the back and check and see if my Ethernet light is on its off. I pulled out my USB and tried the one in the front no luck. When I enter bios the keyboard works. Also I turned off the computer holding the button unfortunately. I pulled the plug out and held the power button for 30 seconds to drain the on board battery. When I turned it back on I had no luck both the keyboard and mouse were not working and the Ethernet light is still off. One more thing my PSU has always had a small led on it it always lit up green and it still was. Please help I'm laying down on my bed hopin I can get answers. I won't be able to answer any posts left until after 2:00pm tommorow.

Have you checked on these devices in the Device Manager? If so then please post there status and a screen-shot of the Device Manager showing these Devices.

On some Laptops you have to press a Button for the Ethernet or Wi-Fi to become active.
