Case Front USB Ports not Responding

  1. Hey Guys! I have a copmputer with an Antec p160W case. I was wondering, is it possible for the two front USB ports to go out? Is there a way to replace them if they do? Just to let you know, all of the cords and plugs needed are attached.

    Not possible unless the motherboard is faulty, which is highly unlikely that only the USB headers would die.

    What is more likely is the wires aren't properly seated on the USB headers, they are put on incorrectly, or the drivers in the OS are corrupted and need reinstalled.

    That can't be possible, because the mobo has been working fine. My grandmother just reported this problem. It's related to System #2 in my profile. Anyway, all of the other USB ports work fine. And, I can't put the USB wires in any other direction because they're arranged in a block, and have a similar look to the way newer IDE cables prevent you from putting them in the wrong way.
