  • Check your documentation. USB ports may differ, version 2 vs 3.

    Also look into Device Manager. You may find possible problem here.

  • As Milos says, check Device Manager. Here you'll be able to see the power usage of the USB port and what devices are connected to it.

    It is possible that the port has become loose/damaged through overuse. Are you often plugging/unplugging devices into this broken port?
