The USB and ps/2 ports are not working on power up. the keyboard and mouse are not recognized on boot up. The PC boots as normal to the desktop with no problems. All was working fine until i started messing around with a sound blaster card and upon turn off one time the above fail happened.

I assume you have by now taken out the sound blaster card, I hope. The beeping is a code that tells you what the problem(s) are with your computer. Just taking out the sound card will be a start. If you had an onboard sound card and did not disable ... PC Desktops
