Windows 7: USB ports won't recognize mouse

USB ports won't recognize mouse


Hope this post is in the right forum.
I have a 6 month old HP Pavilion dv6 Series laptop. Up until recently the USB ports on the right hand side of the machine (2 of) accepted my Trackball mouse, but now they don't. The USB port on the left side is fine, the mouse works ok in that one. The ports on the right side work for other things, like my internet connection dongle, just won't recognize the mouse.
Any idea why this would be happening ?
Thanks in advance,
