Hi there ...... Is there any errors in the Device Manager ? Do the rest of your usb ports work.
If you could post your system specs please . It would be a big help.

For the front USB3's to work, a cable from them to the motherboard must be connected. Can you verify the cable is indeed connected?

Paul.

Edit: the cable looks like the one in the pic.
