It All started when my ipod was being stupid and got Bricked almost.. So I went into Windows XP but switched to IDE storage Config. in the Bios Fixed it Rebooted Changed to AHCI which is what Windows 7 was Installed with So..Now When I go to Windows 7 NO Matter what Mode (Safe Mode) Keyboard and Mouse there Off they don't stay on after boot... I tried a PS2 Converter, Switched USB Ports, Put in a new Keyboard and Nothing. Keyboard: Dell Multimedia USB with 2 USB Ports and Logitech V200 Wireless Mouse.
I re-copied the USB drivers from the DVD into System32/Drivers Still will not work..

I use Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit.
Asus P6T
Core i7 930 2.8GHz LGA1366
OCZ Gold Series 2x2GB = 4GB DDR3-1333

Also I did Memory Test nothing was wrong. I have had this problem with XP before because it couldn't handle the System Hardware Change But I was able to easily repair it and It worked after. How Do I fix it with Windows 7?
