    Umm. Switch them back? I don't think that putting them to wrong ports should damage them in any way. But, if it really seems like something has broken, try another mouse ot keyboard to see if the ports are broken or the mouse and kb.

    I did but neither will work, I dont think i broke anything, I thought maybe it had messed up some driver or something. As you can probably tell, I dont know much about how it all works.:cool:
