    'Several solutions contained in the following article: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/how-to-fix-usb-not-working-in-windows-7/

    + here's something important that you should know about Windows 7: -

    You have a few weeks or so left before you hit the deadline at which you should have upgraded to Windows 10 and/or stop using Windows 7; because Windows 7 will become obsolete and I guarantee you will get huge problems before 2020 is out.

    Really - the hackers and scammers are waiting for people who don't bother to upgrade and are still using Windows 7, and they'll have a field day with them: Emptying their bank accounts & stealing their identities.

    What is the USB controller status in Device Manager?

    Also, while in Device Manager, any devices marked with a yellow ! or red x need to be investigated as they are, at best, missing drivers.

    And it's possible the ports are simply faulty. USB ports get a lot of abuse, especially in laptops.
