first thing you want to do is make sure the correct modules are loaded
for your usb controller. to do this run:

$ lspci -vv | less -S

look for OHCI or UHCI and possibly EHCI. once that is determined, run:

# modprobe uhci_hcd


# modprobe ohci_hcd

and possibly (if you have USB 2.0)

# modprobe ehci_hcd
