faulty USB ports is driving me nuts...HELP

I have this computer more or less:

and it has 3 USB ports. The one by itself on the left side is always fine but the 2 on the right side (where I plug in my USB keyboard and USB mouse) sometimes dies on me, so that my keyboard and mouse no longer works. I can only 'fix' this by restarting my computer, until the next time it happens.

I'm not good w computer but entered Device Manager and it seems to recognize both devices when I plug them in, says "device is working properly" but obviously they don't. They supposedly have the most updated drivers.

I plugged in a portable USB drive to test both ports and they recognize and can access the drive's directory, so it's definitely not a hardware prb and something to do w the communication between my USB keyboard/USB mouse and the computer that gets 'triggered' while I'm using the computer. If helpful, the laptop's keyboard and mousepad always work.

I'm stumped...any help from the IT experts here?
The richest one percent of this country owns half our country's wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation...It's bullsh*t. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal...Now you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy, are you buddy?
