I'm having this issue and I cannot resolve it. The rear USB ports on my Acer M3970 get disabled after I restart, I have to go into Device Manager and Disable/Enable them for them to work again. I've uninstalled and updated the drivers, did a system restore, cleaned the registry and reset the BIOS. Am I looking at the prospect of reinstalling Windows?

Same problem when booting and running a different Operating System from a Live CD/USB?

A Live CD/DVD or USB flash drive contains a complete bootable computer operating system (OS). When you boot a computer from it, the OS loads into, and then runs from memory instead of a hard drive. This allows you to run an OS without installing it or making any changes to a computer's current configuration.

To create one, download an ISO file containing the OS you want to use, (such as Ubuntu, Slax or Zorin), then use something like ISO Recorder to burn it to a CD/DVD or USB key.

Now boot your computer from this disc/key and your computer will be running that OS instead of the one on its hard drive.​

When you're done testing, simply reboot your PC from the hard drive.

If the problem persists even when running a different OS, then the issue is probably hardware related.
