USB Ports Stopped Working

They stopped working suddenly. I've unplugged and replugged all peripherals, checked driver status (all working properly), redownloaded driversand rebooted. My printer gives an error message that it is offline.

Just don't know what to do !
Please help.

Ok...What kinda of computer, what version of windows, what brand of printer? We need more information before we can try to help. Other wise without that info, what you already tried is best that we can give you.

I just had that happen. A bit of testing I found the cable had gone bad. If you have another computer try the cable on that computer and a working cable from that computer on the non-working USB computer.
