Re: toshiba satellite USB port is damaged
If the usb port is at the front side of the c.p.u then it can be replaced ,but if the usb port of the motherboard is damaged then you have to take it to any repairing centre and fix it for you......because it has to be replaced with any damaged motherboard usb port....Please don't do it yourself..

The M55 series does not output to external VGA automatically. You can either go into Setup (press F2 when computer is starting) or use FN F5 in Windows to toggle between LCD, monitor, or simultaneous output.
The monitor port should be standard, so as long as the plug on your monitor doesn't have any bent pins, it should work.
If the USB ports are loose, then the computer is going to have to be disassembled for repair.You should have Toshiba, or a Toshiba authorized service center fix it. If I remember correctly,all you have to do with Toshiba laptops is just drop them off at UPS for repair.UPS sends them to Toshiba for free, and Toshiba returns the repaired laptop to you.
It wouldn't hurt to be honest about what happened with the service plan provider and see what they say. It would be a shame to have to replace your computer over a broken USB port. You can always purchase a USB hub which plugs into one USB port and supplies you with two or more USB ports.
Check to see if one of the USB ports is damaged. Sometimes they can be damaged and have connections touching the outside metal of the port which actually grounds the connection and will cause the other ports to not work either. If it is connected then use a flat tip screw driver (*with the machine off and battery out*) to make it not touch the outside of the usb port and try "other" USB ports that aren't damaged and see if it works. If it doesn't then you are looking at needing a new motherboard. Locate your closest ASP and take in for service, you can find them at support.toshiba.com.
The socket on the motherboard was physical damaged, you can't fix it by your self but component level technician only. so you better buy a USB sound converter to make sound out form USB port of the laptop rather to fix the motherboard.
