So, the other day I tried to insert my friends usb into one of the frontal usb ports, it said it couldn't recognize the device or that it had malfunctioned. From that point on, Anything connected to the pc via the usb won't be recognized. heres a picture


anyway, everything else on the pc works fine, so theirs either some really easy way of fixing this or i need to buy a new motherboard/serial bus.

so, yeah, any help would be appreciated.

Try unplugging the computer for a minute or two, so there's no power to the mother board, then turn it back on and see if the USBs work again.
