Please bear in mind that your best contact support is with your computer manufacturer as they are more familiar with your system and how all the components interact with each other.
Also, is not possible for a technician to provide support if we don’t know what product you have. Anyway contacting Packard Bell support is your best source of support, you should get support here:

I would add as well that, considering that you tried both Windows and Linux, there are only two possibilities for why the USB ports would not work:
- They are disabled in the laptop's BIOS.
- They are broken (which is easily done if a (bad) device is plugged into them that, for example, shorts out their power).
P.S. Consider yourself lucky, considering how incredibly rude you have been, that we have answered you at all. Please read and adhere to the required code of conduct: House Rules. Failure to comply will result in your account being disabled.
