Also, what device are you trying to use, and have you tried other devices?

Have you checked device manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks under the usb section. you could try uninstalling usb from device manager and reboot this will force xp to re-detect and install drivers for usb.

Lets check a few steps out with a few questions first, are you plugging usb device in and then not getting the auto-detect box coming up, the one that asks you what action you want to take ?
when you attach the usb device do you hear a ding dong sound ? (put volume up) don't know how else to describe sound. but that is it detecting the usb device. If you open my computer under devices with removable storage do you see any devices ?
Did you try my earlier suggestion to uninstall the usb in device manager and reboot? if so did they detect them and install. you may need to unistall and reinstall any software you have for usb devices before they work ( printer, camara and so on). Do not have any usb devices attached when uninstalling !!!!
if not first check to see if the usb section is showing a mass storage device. if so uninstall in device manager ( single click mass storage device, at top of screen you will see an icon of a monitor with a red cross on it click this). it has been known if a usb device is not correctly removed from a pc a mass storage device is left showing in the usb section when you re-attach another device it will detect it but not bring up the auto-detect box as it points it towards the already detected mass storage device.
Don't know if you have already tried these steps but if not then try them first before doing anything else.
Let me know how you get on

My problem seems to be different though.
I have 4 USB ports found at the front of the machine and 4 at the back.
My front ones also stopped working suddenly. The back ones seems to working just fine. I've checked my device manager, no exclamation marks. I checked BIOS, it seems to be on. I've reinstalled the drivers, no effect. What next?

sorry been away for a few days.
i thought this was a software issue causing this. don't understand why device manager is telling you they are working properly. your suggestion could be right. it may be worth borrowing a psu and swapping them to check if this cures the problem. if you feel confident in opening up the case. before doing this check your mobo docs for min psu reqirements (wattage etc)
sorry i can't be anymore help that this. let me know how you get on.

Is your usb problem fixed? What did you do to fix it?
Which computer do you have, just a normal one or is it like dell or something?
