1. Disconnect the USB hardware from the PC.
2. In Device Manager right click the USB that has the exclamation next to it and choose "Uninstall this hardware" (click Yes if you get some "Are you sure you want to bladiebla" message).
3. Reboot the computer and see if it displays a "New hardware found" message and installs the newly found USB hub/port
4. Connect the USB hardware that previously failed and see what happens.

Hope this helps, this normally solves it for me (unless some hardware is broken).

You may wanna uninstall all of the USB ports then, including the USB root hub (or what's that called). Just do away with everything USB in Device Manager and restart the computer.

What driver are you using? I normally just let Windows find it's USB drivers. Never used any manufacturer drivers, or do you have some VIA board?

Make sure you do have USB enabled in your BIOS.
