open device manager and watch it while you insert the problem pen drive into one of the non-working slots. If it shows up there: rt click on it and delete it.
Remove the pen drive and after a minute re-insert it. It should get redetected and a new driver should load for it. If that works, repeat for the other usb port

I have done what you said.When i connected my pen drive ,device manager shows a 'unknown device' in the USB controller list.Then i uninstalled that unknown device and removed my pen drive.And after a minute I re-inserted it .but it again shows that unknown device.So i again done the same step and restarted the PC.AND IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM.Thanks.:).:).:).:)
