I just tried to do all the things you told me, and none of it worked. I can't get to the right screen by hitting F12, I couldn't find my serial numbers for the Olympus by using the AIDA or Belarc Adviser, and the two times I tried diagnostics on Dell, I got a message saying that type of thing couldn't run on my computer, and I had to quit. So now I am stumped all all three things.

Re: Me and my BIOS and drivers and all that
You were looking for the serial number for the DSS player pro weren't you ? The Olympus should have the serial number on the recorder itself. I was hoping the program could help you recover your serial number, it does not work in all instances. Hopefully you registered it with Olympus and a phone call should be all it takes to get the number again. I will be more than happy to connect with you and try to help you discover the reason that your onboard usb ports are not working. However, it may be easier on you to just take it to a technician in your area. Let me know what you would like to do.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Go to HP's website and download the procedure from their website. You can try this also. Turn the PC on. As soon as you see anything on the screen start pressing the F1 key. That should take you into the BIOS. If F1 doesn't work, try the F12 key or the Delete key the same way.
You have to re-install windows and the drivers its the only way to get rid of this virus unless this virus is a bios one then, you will have to google it and see if there is a solution for the bios virus.
this sounds like a BIOS update needed, I have a jetway motherboard that did the exact same thing and after visiting the manufacturers website and obtaining a BIOS Update my PC is now as fast booting up as it is when it fully loaded. Visit the dell website if you haven't already and go to the download and drivers section enter your service tag scroll down find the BIOS part in the drivers section, Then follow the on-screen prompts carefully read how to install it write it down if necessary then update your BIOS and within a very short time you should be booting up at light speed instead of turtle speed. Hope this helps.
before trying anything in Bios control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or if you can see your usb but its not working ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
The first thing I would check is your video card (usually driver) problem. Start windows in safemode with networking. If this problem has occured after updating the video card driver you may try rolling back the driver to a previous version, otherwise try
Once windows starts you'll want to go to the start menu and find and click run. In the text box enter the command "devmgmt.msc" and hit enter and the device manager should appear. Look for display adapters and left click the + and you should see your video card. Right click the video card and select properties from the drop down menu. Select thr driver tab. Now if the problem had occured after updating the driver, choose rollback the driver from the menu. If not try selecting the update driver option. After updating/rolling back the driver you'll want to try restarting in normal mode.
If it still won't start in normal mode you can try troubleshooting the video card under the general tab in properties, though to be honest I've found this rarely usefull but it might help you. Otherwise you'll want to make sure that your videocard is enabled in BIOS. A quick totorial of BIOS if needed http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/bios-beginners,1126.html.
Otherwise it's likely a physical issue with the graphics card. Since you've tried reseating the card already it may be that the card is damaged and will need to be replaced.
I cant figure out a solution exactly as you have already tried things people have told you previously. but as far as i know dell should solve your problem for free instead of telling you to fix it. did you try contacting them and are you in your warrenty period?
For the BIOS try F1 usually for IBM. For the safe mode the key is F8 tap it a couple of tyme quickly after the BIOS screen.
If i understood correctly you changed the display resolution and now you can't see on your screen. If this is right when you will tap the F8 button, in the menu you will see an option saying: VGA mode witch will start windows in 640x480. You will be able to see something then.
