Issue with USB ports?

For a while now there's been some sort of issue with my computer and it's USB ports. It started with my mouse having issues with freezing up and not working until I unplugged it and plugged it back in. Eventually it would cause my keyboard to stop working along with it, forcing me to restart my whole computer to get things working again. I've even tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, but it didn't help much. Now sometimes when my mouse goes out, it causes my headphones (which are also USB) to not function properly, like not playing audio or making my mic not work. It even sometimes causes things like YouTube videos and songs playing on Windows Media Player to freeze. Any ideas as to what's wrong?
