Presario A900 A976TU USB Port Issues

\015 2 USB Ports malfunction suddenly. Reinstalled Vista Home Premium with no specifc failure information from device manager. Unfortuntely, the USB ports on right hand side don't work for any USB device even an optical mouse. By disabling the ICH8 Famil USB2 Hub Controller, the USB Ports are working again but the SD Card Reader and One USB on left hand side will be disabled also. If enable the ICH8 Family USB2 Hub Controller, USB Ports on left hand side are malfunction again. Tried some hotfix from MS Website, update to SP2, update chipset but no solution can work.\015
