First, be sure that you have tested the drive on another known functional USB port on the computer and another computer. If the drive doesn't work there, then it is a problem with the drive or cable. If this doesn't work see below.
Go to control panel>System>Device Manager and check to see if you have yellow question mark. If you do you will need to remove it and try to replug the drive. This may be a driver issue. Also check the BIOS and see if it has been disabled there. If you have done this then do the following.
You will need to go to control panel>System>Device Manager and remove all USB components and the right click the top of the tree and select scan for hardware changes. The USB should reinstall and be ready to go.
