USB stopped working on asus laptop

The usb just stopped working on my Asus zenbook UX32VD laptop, running windows 8.1. Device manager shows no problems with usb (or any devices), and I have tried plugging in several different usb devices (my mouse, flash drives) to check. The built-in touchpad still works.
Can anyone suggest how I might fix it, or what has happened? Thanks.
Things I have tried:
- Uninstalling the usb devices in device manager, then restarting.
- Downloading the Intel chipset drivers from Asus's website, and reinstalling.
- Unplugging all the usb devices and restarting.
- Uninstalling Asus usb Ai charger (recommended on some forums).
I'm afraid I can't pinpoint when the trouble started exactly, since I have been using linux (m usual OS) for the past few days. Tonight when I restarted into Windows, my usb mouse wasn't working. I upgraded to Windows 8.1 a couple of months ago, mostly without problems (certainly without any usb problems).
Thanks a lot for any help.
