USB Ports no longer work

I have just updated my Intel Bios - from here - http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-022312.htm
Old Bios was - Product - D845GVFN

Now after restarting my computer my USB ports no longer work.  They do not even work on start up so I can no longer access the Bios to check the settings.  It's like the USB ports have just turned off.

I can no longer use a mouse or keyboard.  Any ideas on how I can resolve this issue

Locate a PS2 keyboard and use it to access the BIOS.

Contact Tech Support for assistance with their failed BIOS update.

Can you flash back to the known good bios version?

Curious, what prompted the bios update?

Seriously though, call Intels tech support line and reference the fact their BIOS upgrade just killed your box.

Just doing an update on latest drivers etc.

The Keyboard and Mouse no longer work at all at any point so I am unable to get to BIOS, safemode etc.

Check pages 37,46, 47 of the manual for bios recovery options.
