Any suggestions as to why is is occurring or what might need to be repaired?
Sounds like the daughter card may be partially disconnected from the main motherboard. The usb ports on this model are on a seprate daughter card, and connect using a small socket to the bottom of the main motherboard. If you can pull it all apart you will be able to easily re-seat this card. Another option is the daughter card is going bad, or the usb ports and or drivers are bad, but it sounds like the card is not properly seated.

Tips for a great answer:
What cant be detected? That error usually means that either a peripheral device (such as a printer, camera or MP3 player) or an internal board (such as a modem, network card, or keyboard or touch pad) is not being recognized by the machine. Generally the error will say what it cant detect, something like "Network not detected" or "Unable to detect video board"
You have not supplied us with vital information to assist you. To give you the specific fix we would need Make & Model of your laptop, what operating system you have loaded (which version of Windows or is it one of the Linux systems) but I will try to help you narrow it down.
First disconnect all wires from the laptop except the power cord. Now turn on the power switch. If you get an error, come back and tell us exactly what it says.
Then start plugging in your peripheral devices (printer, USBs, network, camera, MP3) ONE device at a time. Each time you plug one device give it a minute or two to see it that new device is detected. Lets say that you plug a device and it does not get detected properly, you probably should start by reloading the software drivers for that device.
Start with this and write us back and well give you the next steps.
