Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

Damaged USB ports

3 out of my 4 USB ports are damaged (if you plug anything in them or even touch their outside part) the system get shortcircuited and only the fan continues to work. I would like to have them replaced. Can it be done? Do I have to go to a specialist or I can do it myself? Do you know how I can find a reliable and trustworthy repairman (I live close to Bridgewater, new Jersey). Thanks!

Lenovo Touch pad Stopped working


If you're positive you didn't unplug or rip anything while installing new USB ports, trying checking/updating or rolling back the drivers for the touch pad. Installing new USB ports could have mis-configured something and disabled or modified your drivers for the touch pad.

I got a new transcend USB jetflash drive 16GB, but my system not showing any response towards it, what shall i do..??? is to download a software for it...??


Flash drives do not need a drivers (plug and play). There are several possibilities:

1. Assumptions: USB port error, computer drivers normal, normal flash drive.
Solution: insert a flash drive into another USB port. If the USB port 1 is not detected, insert flash drive into a USB 2, USB 3 or USB 4.
2. Assumption: normal USB ports, computer driver error, a normal flash drive
Solution: reinstall the chipset drivers, or USB.
3. Assumption: normal USB port,
computer driver normal, flash drive is broken
Solution: try to insert the flash drive into another computer. If the flash drive is not detected, it means your flash drive is damaged.

Solution to determine the cause of damage:
1. If you have a USB mouse, use the mouse to check the damage to the USB port. Example: connect the mouse to the USB 1, USB 2, USB 3 or USB 4. If every USB port, mouse is detected, the conclusion normal USB port
2. To check your computer's drivers, right-click My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager

3. If points 1 and 2 are normal, the possibility of flash drive damaged.
Because the new flash drive, flash drive is most likely normal. Based on experience, cause damage to the flash drive is a USB port is dirty. The USB port is dirty, can cause short-circuit flash drive. The characteristics of short-circuit flash drive. When inserted into a USB flash drive (about 5 seconds), the temperature of the flash drive become extremely hot. If there are problems like this, immediately unplug the flash drive, to prevent permanent damage.

I hope this information helps.

My girlfriend inserted a USB plug in upside down and damaged one of my ports, well the other port worked after that until it just suddenly stopped. Now I have old USB ports I can put in myself, I was just...


No, there are no failsafes in place. Just be very cautious, as soldering onto a motherboard, especially a laptop, is not recommended.

If there are ANY working USB sockets, then I would recommend using a USB hub, rather than replacing damaged ones (also, the damage may have caused problems with other components, so replacing the damaged sockets may not work).

I have a toshiba satellite A-135 laptop that will not recognize anything plugged into the 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.

USB Issues


Read this whole responds prior to doing anything!

apparently when the ipod was dropped it either damaged the ipod port on the bottom or the usb cable.
I would try using anothe rusb cable and see if that fixes it.

if it doesn;t, look at the port on the bottom and see if anything is visibly bent. if so try and get a small screwdriver and straighten it out.

Plug it back in and see if it clips into the port.

if you have permanently damaged the ipod port it is attached to the motherboard and almost impossibly to have replaced.

Warranty Replacement
However, if your ipod is still under warranty and shows no sign of damage to the port, you may be able to go to the apple store and without mentioning the drop tell them it won't work through the port.
they may just give you a replacement.after all that's what warranty is for.

Here is a link to check your serial number for in warranty status:

Acer Aspire 7004 wmsi Will not start.


When you press the power button does anything happen? such as lights or LED's illuminate?

You could try the following -

1. Make sure there is nothing plugged into the computer (USB devices or memory cards etc etc).

2. Remove the power cable & the battery

3. Press the power button for 30 seconds

4. Insert the charger but not the battery and try and start it up.

If that doesnt work check the USB ports for damage and the port where the charger is plugged in aswell.

If they are damaged or it still wont start it will probably need repairing.

Short circuit


If you look into the USB port and there are four finger like metal contacts and one of these is bent and touching the metal casing it is shorting out the 5 volts supply. Remove the connection to the power supply and remove the battery then straighten the finers so they dont touch anything. Replace the power adaptor and try again - if the laptop now works that is fine but you will not be able to use that damaged usb port.

Please be sure to rate this solution as we depend on your feedback.
