The 4 USB ports on the back of my iMac don't work about 90% of the time. I plug in my phone, ipod, printer, whatever... and nothing happens. They just don't work anymore. Every so often I can restart the computer and then the first one or two ports will work, but the last two never do. Any idea what this is or how I can fix it? Are they just burnt out from having things continuously plugged into them for 2 years?


(sorry, dont know the difference between intel and whatever other kind of iMac there is, so I just guessed)


iMac (21.5-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
