Front USB ports randomally stop/start working

I recently got a new power supply and video card for my computer. It has been working great but on accident one day I broke the plastic divider inside one of my usb ports so that one no longer worked and now my other usb port is not working. It will not recognize anything plugged into it and my phone can't even charge through it. It did the same thing a few days ago but it randomly started working again but now it isn't and I don't know how to get it back or make it stop. The usb ports on the back of the pc are still working though, my keyboard and mouse are plugged in through it and haven't stopped working once.

  1. If I were you I would go one or both of these routes. You should look into buying another case giving you new usb ports or buy a USB adapter that has 4 to 6 additional ports. You can plug this into one of your back USB ports and then turn it into 4 USB ports.
  2. Reinsert usb cable from mobo (loose connection).
    or use usb dongle.
  3. Remove usb cable from mobo to disable that.
