You should follow ***ALL*** the steps on the handbook page on buildworld.
>From what you have stated so far, you have not done that.  If that still
proves unsuccessful, booting off of a USB FreeBSD clean install drive should
allow you to test a buildworld without attempting to run down an elusive
hardware issue.  If it's still broken in that situation, it would give the
hardware problem theory a lot more credence.
