Default Frontal USB&Other slots don't work.

I brought a HP computer a while back, and I just noticed that the front USB ports, and SD memory card slots don't work.
They show up on the device manager as working properly, but don't recognize devices.
Any reason why this would be?

Well the only thing i can tell you would be to go to the manufacturers website and download all the latest drivers for your computer.YOu could also scan for viruses.
