Device Manager only sees the device and the driver. It cannot see, as such a broken connection of some sort to the motherboard.
ALSO do you mean the cq260 because I could not find that anywhere - what I did find was the CQ60-202US
and that tells me
- 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, or xD Picture cards
- 3 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 - if those ports are next to each other then damage to one will very likely have stopped them all working.
- 1 Headphone out
- 1 microphone-in
- 1 VGA (15-pin)
- 1 RJ-11 (modem)
- 1 RJ -45 (LAN)
I do not, on the information you have posted think there is a lot further I can say.
WHAT was the damage - perhaps that would help.

Unless you can find a friend who has the knowledge to take out the motherboard and repair whatever is necessary.
Even the cost of a NEW motherboard, put into that laptop would make it an uneconomical exercise. at retail costs.
When you ask will this - separating the contacts etc. work - - well that depends. If they are still shorted - it may do. My guess is that the ground pin has shorted with the live pin and the whole motherboard USB header circuit as gone. OR the connection to the PCB of the motherboard has broken.
