    I have a desktop that's about a year and a half old that I'm running Windows XP on. I took my computer home over the Christmas break and everything was fine. It was when I moved it back to school that I started having problems. The first night it was here, my iPhone charged fine, but my computer didn't recognize it at all. Then the next day, my USB mouse stopped working. I got a PS/2 adaptor for it, and my mouse is working fine now, but now nothing I plug into any of the USB ports works. Mouse, keyboard, different mouse, camera, iPod, iPhone, none of them receive any power and are not recognized by my computer as being plugged in at all. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and the ports themselves, and doing a system restore didn't help, so what could be the problem?
