Go into device manager and delete the usb ports, Close down and reboot, when it initialises it will add the new hardware found again. This usually sorts out problems of this kind

MY ports died on my pc and i had to get a pci card with 4 ext and 1 int cost me £11 from nova tech all working now and it reconizes my usb hub and external devizes again

Seen this happen lots of times , when folk just pull their flash drives/pendrives/external drives .etc .etc out of the ports without closing them down first .For some reason it can disable the USB ports . Not sure if this has been the reason in your case ,but try the above method or buy a USB PCI card .

ye ive tried deleting the ports in device manager and it hasnt fixed it, i think the only thing i can do is reinstall windows which i really dont want to have to do

ive reinstalled the motherboard drivers and thats not fixed it either

This happened to me and I did a system restore to when they were working ( Ie 24 hours before) and this seemed to work - no more problems so far - touch wood.

ive tried a system restore and still no luck, infact ive thrown everythin i can at it
reinstalled drivers, disabled usb in bios,
it seems that the drivers for the usb controllers are not installed
