    Hi all.
    I have a late 2009 Macbook White.
    I recently used an USB hub that (i think) it was faulty.
    My Macbook shut down without any warning... poof.
    Restarted fine but my 2 USB ports stopped working.
    I tried all this:
    - Used Apple Hardware Test. (no errors, all good).
    - Left it 30 minutes without power cord.
    - Booting Windows XP on bootcamp.
    - Boot with 10.6.1 disc to see if an external USB keyboard would work.
    - Boot in safe mode.
    - Create new Admin User.
    - Press and hold power button until led blinks on startup.
    - Resetting SMC.
    - Resetting PRAM and NVRAM.

    There was another thing to do: remove battery. Can`t do that because I don`t have the necessary screw driver (triangle thingie). Any extra help?
    Thanks in advance.

    sounds like a logic board problem, since you have tested just about everything possible.
    (removing battery wont help either, it does essentially the same as pram reset.)

    i would bring it to apple and let them take a look at it.
