The ports that don't work are they on an External USB hub or directly on the computer?
First disconnect all the USB devices from the USB ports and then  remove the USB drivers from the Device Manager ,reboot and Windows will reinstall them.
Then Reconnect the USB devices to the ports that were not working.
