Windows 7: Front USB ports wont work?

Front USB ports wont work?

Well in short, one of the usb ports on the front of my computer broke (the insides are all bent and stuff) so naturally it doesnt work. But all 4 other usb ports on the front dont work either! This is a major inconvinience, since now to charge my iphone, I need to loop the thing around a back usb port and run the PC on my desk so it reaches. How do I get this thing back up and running with the minimal amount of explosions? (That means no fancy re-wiring mumbo jumbo)

Those USB ports normally come in block. So the broken one probably short circuits the other front ports.
Best option would be, to replace the complete block.I wouldn't want to bother you with removing wires from the damaged port.
