    Check the cable that goes from those ports to your motherboard header. Make sure its connected correctly and that the cable is undamaged. Also have a good look at the ports to make sure there isn't any dust or lint etc blocking them. Also make sure the jacks haven't come loose from the case, if they are moving when you plug a USB cord in the USB plug may not be going in all the way.

    Just to be clear, I'm talking about the internal cable that goes from the ports to your motherboard. Not the cable that goes to the phone.
