Have you tried turning it right off and back on?

I often seem to overload USB ports, but they always come back after switching off and back on :)

Probably the usb fuse (smd component on the main board) check the board for 5v (pin 1 of any usb headers) and if that is there then you may have damaged the USB controller. A simple usb card will cure the issue if you don't want to fork out for a new board

Unless you plugged it into the expansion card, you won't have killed that.

Don't think its a fuse as it seems to come on (I have an external hard drive with a LED indicator on it) for a few minutes on boot up then switch off again, leaving the PC devoid of USB.

Ah well, I built it myself out of scraps so no money lost, just annoying.....

HO HUM! :blackeye:

A PCI USB 2 card is only a few quid.

Have you tried removing the USB device(s) in the device manager and then searching for new hardware?
It could just be a windows issue....
