Check to see if they are disabled in the BIOS. Or GPO may be restricting them.

5 volt Power

by TheChas In reply to USB Ports not working

Sounds to me like you have lost the 5 volt power to the USB ports.

Either from an outright failure on the motherboard or from having too many power hungry devices plugged in at once.

Aside from replacing the motherboard, I would disable the on-board ports and install a USB card.

other devices

the power supply went out about a week ago and after i replace the power supply is when the USB ports did not work. and other devices in the device manager give me a error 10 wich is they will not start. would that be the same problem with them as well as the USB ports.
