    Is everything installed correctly in your device manager?

    Has it ever worked?

    I'd check the manufacturer site of your PC to ensure you have the latest drivers installed for all necessary hardware as well.

    Slot could be bad?

    Check the cables from the slot back to the MB. They may have come loose. Check them at both ends. The slot and the MB.

    Also go into device manager and open the universal serial bus controllers. There should be no yellow splats on any USB device and there should be a line for Universal Serial Bus 2 Enhanced Controller. If there are splats or the USB 2 is missing you have a driver issue.

    My money is on the cable.
