Having problems with your Gateway 6510GZ Notebook ?

USB ports no longer work

\015 Gateway Model 6510GZ laptop computer. I think I shorted out my USB ports on this laptop when I plugged my GPS into one of the ports and I heard a noise and saw some smoke. Is there any way to replace them? There is power to them and the computer recognizes them, but they won't work. I have uninstalled them and then the computer reinstalled them when I rebooted, but nothing works on them.\015

I also only see 4 usb ports listed, (all are taken and show what's in each,) and I'm guessing the one I'm not using should show up there too as empty, so I'm not sure how to resolve that. It also shows two usb Root Hubs under them. Also starting today I can no longer get a mouse to work thru the port for it, I have to use a usb mouse.
