1st thing to look for is if the fan spins up when you turn on the laptop. If so, the problem may lie with the operating system. If the fan does not spin up when you turn it on, then I would say something is wrong with the motherboard.

HP/Compaq NX5000 - USB ports register "power surge" problem with 1 flash drive, does not register other USB devices

This is one of about 4 thhings that can cause this problem.
The bios could be glitching out on you.
One of your usb ports has cracked or broken solder causing an arcing condition(most likely cause).
Usb driver corruption.
First try the BIOS fix, see if that works.
Unplug the laptop, and take out battery.
With no power to pc, hold power buttom in for approxamitely 30 seconds.
Release power button, replace battery, and plug laptop back in.
Try to reboot and see if it now works properly.
If not, then unless you are willing to take the laptop apart, then you will need to take it to an authorized HP/Compaq service center and have them re-solder your usb jacks in place.

Like I said, this is the most likely problem, as usb jacks, like power jacks, are notorious for breaking solder connections due to the movement of the socket with whatever is being plugged into it.
For ubd drivers, insert your system resource disk, and re-install your usb drivers.
If you don't have a disk, you can go to the HP/Compaq website and manually fdownload the drivers as well.

HP Compaq Presario V6030 usb ports don't work, is this something I can fix with drivers or can they be replaced.

First try these steps
1.Remove all the usb devices connected, then go to device manager and under Universal Serial Bus controlers uninstall all the usb root hub and then restart the computer
2. If it still doesnt work do a bios update from for your notebook and then restart and do a bios default too.
3. If these steps doesnt resolve the problem do a recovery and even after recovery the NBs usb ports doesnt work then mother board needs to be replaced as the usb ports are fixed in it.
