Motherboard/USB port issue

  1. Hello all, I'm new to the forums and just an hour ago had an issue with plugging my speakers into the front USB port (2 front 4 back). Proceeded to see my current programs slow up as if to recognize the device then lost connection to all of my devices plugged in.I I'm currently on a D945GnT Intel Motherboard. This motherboard has been discontinued for quite some time. I've restarted my computer a handful of times and the problem isn't that it doesn' recognize the drivers or the hardware itself, but that it doesn't know I am plugging something into it. Is it possible to have fried the USB portion of the motherboard by overloading it or something? (Had 3 plugged in in back and none up front). If so, what specifications am I needing to replace this motherboard with another one, being this model is currently discontinued. Thank you all, this is driving me insane.

    I was able to get it up and running with a power down tip. Flipped my power switch in the back and left it off for 30minutes. Turned it on and the keyboard lit up, then plugged an older mouse-ball mouse in to let it detect drivers, unplugged, and plugged my newer Logitech G9x back in. Everything is up and functional again. Thank you though Lookaround!!!
