The Borg's very nature. The Borg ASSIMILATE other species, and if your remember a good majority of the species we have seen from the Delta Quadrant aren't really the most technologically advanced. And many that where probably where assimilated a long time ago. Basically, the Borg in that sense is screwed. I do have to mention that we did not see a whole LOT of the Delta Quadrant, so that may be a false assumption.
Now, you also have to count in that basically the ENTIRE COLLECTIVE WAS LITERALLY BROKEN APART. How long do you think it would have taken for the Borg to reassemble an adequate Hive-mind? You have to remember that for Drones, dealing with individuality is hard, and most likely they where very confused and unable to work their advanced machinery. Also, the Queen was dead, meaning that the Borg's main Processor of Info is gone, and Chaos is brought into the remainder of the Collective. It is logical to assume that many of those years where spent just reassembling the Collective, and that the Borg probably lost some of their All-Powerful Knowledge. (Much like a Virus)
