Question about Computers & Internet
The little black plastic parts inside my usb port have broken off. The computer is a dinosaur that I just use as a storage device and have my printer connected to. I don't want to spend a fortune fixing it and want to know if I can buy a new usb port and plug it in? I can easily remove it.
May be hard to find.
If you have a spare PCI slot in your motherboard, I'd buy a cheap USB card and install it.
Here's some cheap ones online:
You may also be able to get one on eBay reasonable.

If the ps2 port on the main board is broken you will need to replace the board. If this is the case and your computer has usb ports on it just go out and buy a usb mouse.
If the part that is broken is from the mouse by using tweezers try to gently remove the broken part from the board. if unsuccessful use the usb port with a usb mouse.
