So basically all my mobo usb ports stopped working 2 days ago and only 2 ports on the front of the case are working.
The problem occured after i force shutdown my pc by holding the power button, before that everything worked perfectly fine, next day when i turned the pc on my peripherals didnt want to work.

I tried uninstalling the ports via device manager, updating the drivers via device manager, turning off fast startup... I also booted into safe mode to see if the ports will work there but no, only the front ports work and none of the back ones do
I also tested the back ports by plugging in my phone charger and it started to charge my phone so i guess the ports arent dead? If you have any suggestions please post them, thanks in advance.
