Install the drivers for your MB / chipset.
I suspect that along the line, one of the files for used to communicate with the USB ports was removed.
If you know who made your MB, or what chipset is on it, go to thier website, and download the latest drivers.
If you don't know who made your MB / System, there are id tools at www.motherboards.org and links to the MB /chipset mfgrs.

You can also try removing the USB root hub from device manager, (right click on my computer, select properties) shut down your system, then reboot. Windows should then find the root hub, and install the default drivers.

Also, make sure that USB is enabled in the BIOS settings.
