Try and plug them into one of your other computers and see if they
work there.  Does any USB device work on the port you are plugged
into?  Perhaps it's the port itself.  Odd that they would both fail at
once. Is there another port on the computer you are using you could
plug them into?  Did you look at the devices in Device Manager?  Might
be worth trying to delete them and then reboot and let Windows re-add
