Really, which OS you run shouldn't matter; a USB charger only connects to the power on the port, whereas a data cable will charge and allow transfer between the two. If the phone is charging with other chargers, then it could be a faulty USB port. See if a flash-drive or some other USB device works on the PC.

In a tower, the front usb ports sometimes don't have power, just data. try the usb ports round the back.

Another option is..... some phones wil not charge when connected to a pc unless you tell it to. find that option and enable usb charging if it needs it.

All USB ports have power, every USB device needs power to operate.
