Shouldn't double post =/

Under the device manager, again, try troubleshooting the usb drivers or updating them. Idk what else could be wrong with them other than the drivers, as bruce said (not too knowin about usb's >_>). Also make sure they're not checked 'disabled' ^_~

i would go into the BIOS setup and make sure the onboard usb is enabled. if the power went out and the battery was low it may have reset the settings and on a lot of boards that means disabling onboard usb.
