When you boot up the computer go into the setup or bios, and verify that it hasn't been disabled for some reason. Same goes with the windows Device manager, locate USB in the device list and make sure no devices have a red X or yellow ! on them, I always try a simple usb device like a mouse first to verify USB is not working as mice are simple plug and play, just as a test.

I have lost access to all the USB ports on my Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024. Most recently - 12/26/09 - I was able to use all ports, althought my 16BB Flash Drive - Staples Relay Model also suddenly stopped...

There are a few toys and devices made in China that deadshort the USB terminals. I hope you have not bought and installed one of these. I had 2 in the shop a year ago with some Dora Explorer usb toy that toasted the usb once installed. If you have bought and installed something about the same time as the usb stopped working you will need to call the company that made the device and demand they replace your motherboard.
