USB connection turns on and drops off immediately.

Long story short.

When I plug in any usb in the port(mouse, harddisk, pendrive,anything...) it lights up(the usb) for about half a second and then turns off. Never detects it, nothing.
Here's the weird thing, some mouses when plugged in, are lit on and blink but never detect nor work
I'm guessing something short circuited or something? I even ordered a USB port replacement, didn't work still. The audio sockets connected to the port work, so I have no idea whats wrong.
