When did you first get this problem, and do you mean ALL usb ports on your pc dont work? both front and back ports?
DId anything significant happen before this happened? e.g. moved the pc, added new hardware, etc.

does it work when you boot into windows? if its just the bios then you ahve to get a ps/2 keyboard and enable USB legacy support in the bios. it should be under standard CMOS settings.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
