    Are you referring to the front or back USBs?

    The front ones check the physical connection on the motherboard is tight.

    For the back ones check that you have no ! points in device manager. If the software is good then it is a hardware issue which means motherboard replacement unless someone else has an idea.
  2. its the front and back ports. i really hope its not a bad mobo lol. and no problems in device manager.

    If it is both the front and the back at the same time that eliminates a short in the connection to the motherboard.

    It is still either the software or the hardware. If the software shows the USB drivers then I would assume it is the motherboard unless once again someone else has better advice.
