Default USB Slots Not Working

So yesterday, I plugged a USB phone charger into my drive, and usually it works fine, but this time the charger decided to go crazy.

The USB charger repeatedly charged, then stopped charging, charged, then stopped charging, in rapid succession.

I take that charger out and find that none of the USB slots are working on my Windows 7 HP Pavillion g7 now, and it's really frustrating. Any tips would be very, very appreciated.

Tried rebooting? Shutdown, took the unplug/battery out & held down the power button for ~30 seconds? Checked Device Manager to see if the USB drivers still recognize the ports (anything related to USB or some type of controller that has a yellow exclamation on it?).

Do all your ports do this?
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
