Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K23 Notebook
You cannot easily replace the usb ports as they are soldered as part of the motherboard. If the ports are not working then go as follows and attempt to reset them
I'm going to assume that you're running XP (home or pro). . This is the sequence to use
1. Right-click My Computer and select Properties
2. Click Hardware
3. Click Device Manager
4. Expand the Universal Serial Bus Controller
5. Right-click each USB device listed and select Uninstall
6. Click OK to confirm removal of each device
Note: Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all devices under UBS Controller are removed
7. Shut down computer.
CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected instead of Restart.
8. Wait a few seconds and turn computer on. When it reboots you will see "Windows has detected new or added hardware"
Note: You will have to insert your Windows CD, if prompted.
These steps will refresh the USB ports.
Added Notes: 1) If your mouse is a USB you will have to use the keyboard to shut down your computer. 2) It would be wise to unplug everything from your USB ports EXCEPT your mouse and/or keyboard before you restart the computer to avoid Windows replicating any printers, scanners, digi-cams, etc. Once Windows has refreshed your USB controllers and ports, shut down again. reconnect, and restart.
