My USB ports are not working at all

This is my first time posting here, it might only be temporary, but really.
All four USBs will not work at all.
I recently bought a new mouse because i though my other one was broken.
NOPE. It's the USBs. I just need some help.
I dunno if this is in the right category.

More about ports working
  1. Sometimes USB devices take a minute or two (especially on older hardware) before they begin to work. Plug it in, go make some tea, and come back and see if it is working.

    I assume these are on the back of a PC? or is it a laptop?

    This has been happening for 3 days. This is a laptop.
    This USB device has been taking a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.
  3. make and model of the laptop?

    have you made any recent changes? (at least between the last time you used the USB ports and now)

    have you run a registry cleaner like CCleaner, and antivirus like Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes? Sometimes malware can do funny things to USB ports.

    Erm, i don't have any viruses. Uh, i think the laptop is called "vostro 1500" or something.
    i'm not good with laptops.
