Try uninstalling and reinstalling the USB drivers/root hubs in Device Manager. Start>Control Panel>Device Manager, click on plus sign besides Universal Serial Bus controllers, uninstall each of the entries and restart the computer to refresh them.

Had the same poblem on a L505-s6946. Unplug power and remove battery. Re-install battery and power back up and all usb ports work fine.

That works a lot of the time as well.  But the next time you do that be sure to press and hold the power button for a minimum of 30 seconds before you put the battery back and plug in the adaptor to completely drain the capacitors on the mainboard.  That works even better.
