Why do you think it's your HDD?
It sounds to me like it's maybe a problem with your MB (I'm no hardware expert, just speculating here). If all of the other USB ports work fine but the one you have your keyboard & mouse connect to then surely this is the tree we need to be barking up?
Thinking about it, if the mouse is connected via a port on the keyboard then it should
still work as normal as it's not depending on the keyboard actually functioning, but relying on the keyboard's power supply.
Anyway, have you looked at the event viewer and the device manager to see if any issues are present?
