The computer it self is working fine. However, when I look at the light on my optical mouse it goes in and out, and also freezes from time to time. X360 controllers have a indicator light in the center where it indicates the player of the joystick. I just bought new speakers and now they are cutting in and out. I believe the computer is failing to send proper signals to all ports (i.e. usb's, audio jacks, etc). Operating system is Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.

Normally I would suggest a bad connection at the usb header but with it affecting other ports as well? Do you have a sound card or are you using onboard sound? I am thinking maybe a cracked or warped motherboard.

Likely

My father built this computer - gaming computer. I'm sure it's a sound card. I've opened up the computer and dusted the fan which keeps the motherboard cool.

If the problem is only with front USB ports then it probably is the front port's themselves, the header/wire connecting it, or the expansion card it is connected to. If the problem is with the rear ports also, then it probably is the motherboard that is the problem. It is probably not the power supply since you said that everything else is working correctly. There is nothing else here that is really involved at all. If the motherboard is under warranty, contact the factory about evaluating it and getting an RGA to return it.
