    Where you trying to install some off the wall driver when this happened? A friend ran into the same type of problem when trying to install a delcom driver one time. We ended up having to delete these files from system32 folder oem?.inf, oem?.pnf, usb.pnf, usbiods.inf, usbiods.pnf, and usbiods.sys.The ? refers to a number that will be different on each computer. Then extracting usb.inf from the cd with this command extract "usb.in_ usb.inf" to the system32 folder. Then install the driver and it worked out.

    If none of the USB ports work:

    1. try removing them from the device manager and restarting.
    2. check the system's BIOS to see if they weren't disabled.
    3. purchase USB PCI card.
    4. replace motherboard.
