You can just buy a Standard usb 2.0 PCI card if the rest of the computer works fine... but if the motherboards weird... you might consider replacing it...

My computer seems to boot up fine but my monitor says no signal and my keyboard doesnt work


You can try tighten up the cable behind the monitor or disconnect the cables and reconnect. You can try another monitor to see whether the mother board and the cable works. Some settings in BIOS may be changed to use on-board video card (the one embeded on the mother board, which is connected on the ports out of the card slots) on your computer so make sure it is using the graphic card that is connected to the monitor. For keyboard, if may be mechanic issue on port or keys or cables if you will not see anything wrong about the keyboard. You can try to use another USB port if it is an USB keyboard or use a USB/PS2 converter if the PS2 keyboard port is not working. If it is a PS2 keyboard, you can check whether the pins are bent and reconnect it. Sometimes that helps. If it is a wireless keyboard, then you will need to fix the monitor and then maybe fix the driver and stuff. You can remove all objects beneath the keys by putting it upside down and shake it or use a blower.

I have a dell dimesion 2400. the usb ports will not work. What do you suggest i do o fix this problem


1. Usually this is a setting in the BIOS (Basic input/out systems) which enables the usb ports. Sometimes a firmware upgrade from the manufacturers web site will resolve this issue. WWW.dell.com ( support).
2. This could be that the usb port have been shorted out. This will require a tech to resolve at the mother board level. Most time this will require a mother board replacement.

Because there are so many different case and motherboard combinations sometimes it can be difficult following the instructions for connecting the front panel, USB header and audio header.

Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.
