Hi Riptide. USB on some older Via chipsets can be very troublesome. The fact that you have the USB on a pci card makes me think yours may be one of the troublesome ones. Do you have any USB devices that work properly? Do you know what Via chipset you have. I have fought quite hard to get a motherboard with a MVP3 chipset working with USB devices without success even with a PCI USB card. I eventually fitted a new motherboard and Duron processor. My USB card reader has driver files C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\USBCRDRV.SYS, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CMM32.VXD, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS\USBSTOR.PDR. It may be worth checking for these files on your system. My card reader is a 7dayshop 6in1 card reader, and the entry in Device Manager under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is for Generic 6-in-1 USB Card reader Driver.
