DONT do it your self if your not sure - You could risk breaking your full laptop. Take it to a computer repair shop.

M-Audio MIDI Keyboard Controller's Loose USB Port


Open up and solder in a new Type-B USB socket. Get spare from any electronics parts supplier - it is a generic part. Just 4 solder points on PCB board.

No power in socket for charging phones etc. Is it a fuse problem?


Are you speaking of a USB port (connector) on the laptop?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_connector#Types_of_USB_connector

Scroll down

If so........NO
There is no fuse for any USB ports. Laptop or desktop computer.

That USB port is bad. None of the USB ports work? Then the USB bus is bad, that all USB ports operate off of.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How do I repair the USB port on my Dell S17-162B?


Well Mr.Brown,
It's not much difficult but i suggest you to send it to DELL support if it lies in warranty.
any way here i am providing complete step by step procedure to do it.

1) First open the screws of main compartment which reveals backside(you can see the CPU FAN)

2)Then open the Screws of Hard disc portion backside

3) Open all surrounding screws which supports whole body

4) make sure one or two screws are at battery compartment open them also

5) Ultimately you have to open whole body of laptop which Reveals the Motherboard.

6) Now carefully disconnect the removable sockets and find your Faulty USB PORT on that Board.

7) Replace it with new USB PORT by re-solder it.

8) Then carefully connect all the components and sockets that you had open previously.

Then fix all the screws of backside.


I hope you understand above procedure to replace your USB PORT. Please give your rating which help to improve the service. Thanks a lot to giving me such opportunity to help you.

Any time I plug anything into any of the usb ports on my Advent roma 4001 my laptop switches itself off. Please help!


If the laptop switches off as soon as you insert the usb cable, there is a problem with either the usb socket or the cable. It is a safety system which stops usb power being re-directed down the usb data lines.
If you have tried multiple cables with the same result then the problem is with the usb socket. try a different socket (a usb hub will help if you are short of spare sockets).
Using a mall light, and maby a magnifying glass, inspect the usb port for bent pins or contacts, some sockets have pins (older dell machines especially) which are not supported at all by plastic backing strip and can be bent easily by inserting the usb plug incorrectly or by children armed with a pen etc.
If you find bent pins (there should be 4 pins evenly spaced or 4 metal strips along a plastic backing peice) remove the battery and attempt to realign the strips with a small screwdriver. switch the laptop on and try a usb plug in the socket - make sure you insert the plug gently and squarely (and the right way round). If the laptop still fails, have another go or ask someone else (who is nimble fingered and technically minded) to try it.
Don't give up (unless you find the socket is broken ie. missing pins) I can guarantee 99% that this is the problem.
good luck

UBS port won't allow my memory stick to go in is there a lock on it???


Hello !

Be certain you are trying a USB port. It is rectangular in shape. The USB memory stick will only go in one way. Try flipping it over.

If still a problem ...

Either your USB memory stick is bad or your USB port on your notebook is bad.

Try another memory stick or try a different USB port on your notebook - should determine which is OK and which is bad.

Hope this helps.

Usb ports loose and now wont work


Even taking a laptop apart (to board level) is tough, but you need to order the USB socket on ebay and solder the new one in carefully. Are you a qualified miniature soldering expert?

USB port loose


Unfortunatley, there isn't an easy way to fix something that is physically broken. Your only options are:

1) Replace the motherboard of the laptop. (would need to be done by a professional, and may cost as much as a new laptop depending on the model)

2) Learn to deal with it. :)
