Default PS3 USB Port Problem

I have a problem with my launch PS3. 3 of the 4 USB ports are no longer working. (only #2 still is active) It seemed to occur right around the same time. It doesn't affect me much except for anything that needs a dongle, like Rock Band and GH, when playing with multiple players. Two questions:
1. Any easy fix? I have tried blowing out the dust with canned air.
2. If not, will would a standard USB 4 port hub work with the PS3? I don't want to buy one if it won't work, but a workaround for less than $20 looks ok.

Thanks for any help.

I hate to say this it might be the PS3 starting to die.
If I remember right some people reported USB problems with YLOD problems.

I hope I am wrong.
