It is very likely to be a hardware problem and shorting of internal USB wires or shorted motherboard circuits (could be due to dirt, etc). If it is still under warranty then return it for repair, if not under warranty it might prove expensive to sort.

Do you have anything plugged into any USB port? The fact you're using mains without battery is not a factor.

Try re-installing your USB Ports - right-click My Computer then click on Properties>Hardware>Device Manager then expand USB Ports and uninstall each and every one, then re-start your computer, USB Ports will be automatically re-installed - and hopefully then work OK.
