If all devices have been disconnected then you likely have a short in one of the connectors. Unplug it from the motherboard and/or replace it with a USB card.

(Perhaps another will respond with a more palatable answer?)

If this is a home-built PC did you bench test the mobo as suggested by jam in this thread?

If this machine isn't home built, does this happen even without any USB devices plugged in when you boot the PC?

In that case I'm afraid your USB ports are damaged due to built-in over-current protection mechanism being blown. I think you may be able to use the PC without USB if there is an option to disable USB features via BIOS setup. we need more specifications of the PC you have in order to determine the appropriate BIOS hot key.

What about the motherboard? See the following link for BIOS key sequences for all motherboards.
