More information will be needed before this gets answered.

What operating system ?

How are the ports connected, cable to MoBo socket or PCI card.

What is he trying to plug in ?

If the system is Windows 98 and the new 4 port USB card is a 2.0 version it may not be compatible. Check the system specs required for the card, there are only a couple of 2.0 USB cards compatible with W98.

if you go to device Manager you should seea USB 2.0 controller. If not something has not installed.
