Well without knowing what kind of hardware you have it's a bit harder to troubleshoot.<br><br>
1. Was the USB working before?<br>
2. How old is the hardware in question? What Operating System?<br>
3. Is it always off or does it come on sometimes?<br>
4. Have you tried different devices?<br>
5. Are we talking about the USB on the back (mounted to mobo) or some in the front? Are the cables connected to the front properly?<br><br><b>EDIT</b>: Oh lol just realized what you were asking about. The below no longer applies.<br><br>
You'll need a Flat tipped screw driver, a hammer, some needle nose pliers, and something to drink. Breaking stuff is thirsty work.<br><br>
First disconnect all the power from the computer, you don't want to damage anything while breaking your usb. Any front side USB's can be simply broken by tugging at the cable that feeds to it from the mobo. For the back ones that are mounted on the board you'll need to wedge the flat tipped screwdriver in tapping it with the hammer as needed. Once you have the connectors bent up half way use the needlenose pliers to pull them out.<br><br>
There you have just broken your USB.
