    Well it's nothing to do with Windows anything

    So unless the BIOS is totally corrupt
    I'd say it's confirmed. You have a fault with your onboard USB

    What to do?

    Either replace the Motherboard
    Or purchase a PCI USB card, which should work.

    There is a small chance that it's power supply too
    Actually just in case.. Pull out the power cord (whilst off)
    Hold down the ON button for 30 secs)
    Put the power cord back in
    Turn on

    It also could be any other addon internal card as well
    It could even be dust on the Motherboard
    Actually good idea (if I don't say so myself) please Benchtest the Motherboard
