Re: USB ports....?
I had a problem where one of my USB ports got shorted out or something. When I plugged anything into it, I'd get an error message saying something like "A USB port has quit working with an error code of 4". Luckily, it was only one port and not the four that were sharing the same motherboard connector.
Buying a PCI usb card would be an easy temporary fix.
If all the usb ports are messed up, that's bad. I would get a new board.
You might want to buy one of those plastic anti-static floor mats to help prevent that from happening again.

Asus P9X79 Socket 2011
