This is a common problem, hopefully you can recover, here is the link.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925196
Basically, ya rip out all the USB layer registry settings totally. Then ya reinstall the entire USB layer all over again.
This removes any corrupt entries and "Zeros" it so to speak, back to the, from-the-factory-default-settings. All new and shinny.
Ready to have your devices that didn't work suddenly spring into life just as it was before.
Now make sure you have any/all Drivers and Software, to reinstall, as it will be like installing the USB device for the first time..
Ok now, if all this doesn't work.. then unfortunately there is a good chance ya USB "Thingy" is beyond recovery. Oh well can't win them all.

Usb ports not recognized


Did this suddenly start to occur? Were they working before? If so, it is very simple - shut down computer, remove the battery and unplug any power source, wait a couple of minutes and reassemble and power up. Wala! I read all kinds of complicated instructions, started with the simple, and problem solved.
