My USB isn't working in Ubuntu...

Here's the deal, all was fine, mouse, keyboard and everything was fine, all USB. Then I was trying to overclock a little and went too far in the bios and the computer wouldn't boot so I pulled the battery for 15 seconds and rebooted. Fixed my issues but now my USB isn't working?

Any help?

Have a hunt about in the BIOS for a USB enable / disable - disabled may be the factory default.
You might also want to make sure the USB modules have been loaded - have a look at the output from 'lsmod'
If that doesn't work, then it's possible you've fried your USB controller (unlikely, but stranger things have happened when overclocking).
