Question about Computers & Internet
I was using it frequently and then all of a sudden, the USB wouldn't go inside the port. I looked at the usb and the pins seem to be a little raised.
you may need to replace the usb cord but be careful you dont damage your usb ports.
another option for you is to buy a hub which plugs into to your usb port and provided 2 or more usb ports for you to use.
this will help stop and damage to your laptop ports

Your ethernet port is probably integrated into the motherboard of your computer. Have you tried reinstalling the driver for the ethernet?
If the port is truly bad, my suggestion would be to purchase an ethernet card or NIC (Network Interface Card) and have it installed. You can get them for $15 to $25 at any big box computer store.

May be hard to find.
If you have a spare PCI slot in your motherboard, I'd buy a cheap USB card and install it.
Here's some cheap ones online:
You may also be able to get one on eBay reasonable.

It does sound like your ports on the front might be bad. They usually connect to a seperate port on the motherboard than the rear ones, and I have seen devices short out the front ports, such as a USB music player.
You can remove the ports on the device manager, and they should come back ok, without worry. However, I doubt that is going to help the front ones. I think you have a hardware problem.
If that is the case, the easiest solution is to get a USB hub, and run a USB cable from the rear, to the front of the computer.

You might have what they call a short back meaning the usb connector that was twisted inside those power 5v and ground could have cause a short thus giving you this death of the computer lights. I would R/O "rule out that this problem with the usb was not the cause of the death.
