I had the same problem with my Acer aspire 5100 series laptop.
I did EVERYTHING (including taking the power cord and battery out) on this thread and it still didn't work.
amazingly, this worked (unintentionally): I ran the battery as flat as I could; pressed the power button (so it would start up for about 2 seconds before dying) many times, and even 'trick-started' it by turning it on with the power cord in, then pulling it out as windows tried to load. BIOS won't start anything if the battery is at a critical level, but it will if there's power in..
So windows never got up and running because the battery was flat, but it must have screwed up the system somehow. Anyway, after I left it charging a bit and started windows, up came 'Installing new hardware: USB Composite device", and all the ports worked again!
One note: my battery life went down by about 5% (I monitored it with CPUID HWMonitor)
download usb recognizer and stop using WINDOWS, change to better things like LINUX.

My USB ports have stopped working on the rear of my laptop. One stopped about a year ago and the other stopped the other day. "device not detected or has malfunctioned" Am using my modem on the last port on the side and don't like using the touch pad as it is too slow. Using a Vista system. Am in a remote area and hope the last port doesn't give up also. Any ideas? I've tried all I can. Cheers.
