Dell Inspiron 1150 USB ports not functional

I have a similar problem, my USB ports stopped working. I've run diagnostics, etc. and the hardware seems to be ok. I believe the registry is messed up. Any recommendations on how to check the BIOS to see they are enabled, and secondly is there a utility to run to correct the registry if that is the problem? Any help appreciated.
