Rather than replace either the motherboard, or a peripheral, get a PCMCIA USB adapter. I have seen them on Ebay for under $10 with free shipping.

You can't buy from any where in Australia. It is only can get form faulty motherboard and re-put to your motherboard, otherwise you have to changed whole motherboard.

It is laptop not desktop, every parts all have been solder on the one PCB board, which all on one board.

Hello, my problem is that I work only 1 usb port and do not how or what it could be the order of me

This is not uncommon. If only one USB port is working, you can buy a cheap USB extender with several ports that will plug into the working one and can run all your USB devices from this adaptor. They really are cheap.

The only other solution is to replace the motherboard, as the USB ports cannot be easily repaired on that model

Hi also own a acer aspire 5516 and both usb slots are unoperable when i try to attach usb cables into the slots it won't go in. It's like the little piece that sticks out has fallen down. please...

Welcome to Fixya.

Seems like you're having some serious hardware issues with the USB ports. Before I go on, you have to know and understand that all USB ports in your laptop is connected to the mainboard (motherboard) and there are no ways developed (yet) to repair/replace a USB port without replacing the entire board itself. With this, I am highly recommending for you to purchase a USB Hub - where you only need 1 USB slot from your computer as this device carries multiple (up to 16!) USB ports with it. It can be purchased from any local computer/electronic boutiques near you and it looks something like this :


Common price ranges from $30 to $50 (depending on model and number of slots). If however, you choose to have the board replaced, then we are looking for around $300 - $400 for the labor and parts.

Here's acer's support site if you wish to know more details about replacement options :

I have 3 USB ports on my Dell Inspiron B130, and they are all broken. It seems they are broken somewhere inside the computer - stuff plugs in, but doesn't register on the computer. How much would it cost...

well those are built to the motherboard and in turn would mean you would need to replace your motherboard and that is very costly. try finding a card that goes in PCMIA slot. or you might have the express slot. is a good site to buy one.

HP DV8327Cl Laptop - broken USB

Ouch that definately sucks. Well it depends what is broken about it, if you are talking about the middle part you may be able to fit it back in there between the metal parts and use it ever so gingerly. But if the whole thing is loose, then yea they are usually put right on the motherboard. I know this probably isnt that helpful but you could just buy a USB hub for any other existing USB ports that work and at least you would have more than 1, :)

Compaq Armada E500 PC Notebook usb port problem

If the usb connector / port is only damaged it should be a fairly easy task.

Your going to need a few screwdrivers to get the laptop open
and a soldering iron, to remove the port or ports connector(s)
from the motherboard then replace it with a new connector.
if the motherboard is damaged you would most likely have to replace the whole motherboard and that would be way too much money for a few usb ports.

the usb connector only has 4 pins

Satellite A35-S159 LCD Problem


I don't think the LCD inverter is the problem. This part only powers the light of your LCD. I think the electronics on the back of the LCD is bad. You have to replace your LCD to fix this problem. Take a look on eBay for a affordable replacement.
