Are you sure it's not a driver or software issue causing the usb ports to be dead?

I'm not sure, but it could be as simple as a Microsoft update that is causing issues.

That's just a shot in the dark... but it may be worth looking into.

Also maybe try updating your bios as well, if the above doesn't do it.

If not, hey go buy a new one.... New pc's are always a good thing.

Wait... is your USB drives dead, or USB port?

If it's USB drives, do you leave your USB drives on 24/7? Never do that, XP doesn't see an external USB drive as a real harddrive, so it doesn't power down your USB drive automatically.

Nothing wrong with a usb drive running 24/7. Nothing is going on while they are just sitting there. There is a small amount of power keeping the chips running, but no reads/writes (unless you added the drive into Vista as a ReadyBoost drive).
If you're refering to an external hard disk, connected via USB (as opposed to a solid state usb disk like a memory stick), then they certainly will use more power, but hard drives don't mind running 24/7.

I turn off basically all power management on my desktops, other then turning off the monitor, and they both run 24/7 (one is a mediaPC, constantly using the disk, other is my file server, I need to be able to get at it from anywhere anytime).

Yeah I was referring to external hd connected via USB... I don't know, but from experiences, I've seen so many external hds get overheated when they're just kept on 24/7 without using... Personally I turn off all my external hds when I don't use them... :comperror

I recently bought an external hd enclosure and the heat is an issue with it if left plugged in... It's a cheapo unit and that may be why. I have a couple of other external h/d's that I use 24/7/365 and they stay much cooler, but these are the seagate ones designed for everyday use and not a cheapo enclosure.

If the external enclosure doesn't have a fan on it, then yea, I'd be keeping an eye on the heat levels as well.
The enclosures I use are all well ventilated and have a fan. Seagate drives inside too only.
