Lost USB power on a DELL INSPIEON 8600 laptop.

My 8600 has two USB ports, stacked one over the other. The top one is missing the little plastic center slot thing, so I always use the lower USB. Until one night last week while in a big hurry I reached over the top and plugged into the upper (broken port) which shorted out the USB all together. I did get a balloon message that I did not get to read before it went away. I do not know what to do.

Hello here is your pc`s homepage:

First check for any drivers missing in the device manager.

You need to install itunes to communicate with the ipod and ipad:

If you have an old itunes, uninstall it and install the new.

Good luck

Lenovo USB port bent pins


The USB port/socket needs to be replaced it cannot be repaired.
It is not an easy DIY job, you need to take it to an IBM laptop repair center or a laptop repair shop.

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 malfunction


CHECK THE RATING ON YOUR POWER SUPPLY BECAUSE SOME LAPTOPS WILL REGISTER THE POWER CONNECTION PORT AS A USB PORT AND IF YOUR POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE IS TO HIGH FOR THE COMPUTER IT WILL REGISTER IT AS SUCH, "HUB-PORT" IS SHORT FOR MAINBOARD PORT ON SOME DELLS. UNPLUG YOUR POWER SUPPLY AND CHECK THE RATING ON IT COMPARED TO THE DELLS INPUT VOLTAGE, THE INFORMATION IS NEXT TO YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS AND LABELS ON BOTH PEICES KEEP ME POSTED... JON-T
