Try going to device manager and right click all usb root hubs, one at a time, and right click, properties and on power management untick the box to Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

Quite often the front ports are from a header while the rear are direct off the board

front two ports share power while rear have full power to each port.

Get yourself a powered USB hub which will solve your problems. USB Hub.
