The laptop was dropped on that side with a cord in the usb connector. Has not worked since. Think the connection worked loose or solder join failed.

Yeah if you dropped it you most likely did break a pin or the dislodged the connector from the solder. Re-soldering it isn't that hard, taking the laptop for someone inexperienced would be.

SOURCE: USB port loose

Unfortunatley, there isn't an easy way to fix something that is physically broken. Your only options are:

1) Replace the motherboard of the laptop. (would need to be done by a professional, and may cost as much as a new laptop depending on the model)

2) Learn to deal with it. :)

SOURCE: Broken touchpad connector

I suggest you replace the motherboard. A recent search on ebay turned up three ranging in price from $18 to $85. Soldering a motherboard by hand has a very high failure rate. It's easy to bridge or scratch something and fry the board. You could of course try to do it and if it fails get a replacement board.

SOURCE: Can I power my laptop through th usb port

I know you've either fixed your problem, or thrown the laptop out(still a "fix") but for posterity, and for anyone with a similar problem...

There are two answers, depending on your laptop.

First, NO, there is currently no way to charge your laptop battery by putting power into the usb port.

There ARE commercial external batteries. sadly, they will connect to your failing power-socket.(see

If your laptop has a external battery charging dock, for spare batteries.... you could go that route.
you'd probably still want to follow the last suggestion.

Seriously... anyone with fairly good soldering skills can probably fix that powerjack. It probably pulled/pushed the traces off the main board and will require superglue, solder, and maybe a bit of fine wire, to fix. The biggest obstacle will be the dissassembly, and proper reassembly of the laptop case. It'll take a while, but once fixed, should return your laptop to 100% functionality.

I have saved 3-4 laptops with this technique. One, I even swapped the power jack to a more common size. This was to allow the use of a non-proprietary power brick(the original had fried itself).

SOURCE: dell 1525 not charging. dc usb board replacement


Sorry to hear that you are still having trouble. The only other thing to try is your battery on your buddies notebook. If it works there then it is the charging mechanism on your notebook and this would mean replacing the motherboard.

How to connect mouse to Toshiba laptop

First of all, I am assuming you are using a current laptop with USB connectors. For a corded mouse, insert the USB plug into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the mouse, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse. For a USB wireless mouse, insert the dongle into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the dongle, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse.

My asus motherbord usb not working error "usb not recoznised"

If you mean the USB panel in the front then I should say that that cord of that panel is not connected to the motherboard, to solve you problem open the case and look for that cord maybe your forgot to plug it or you plug it in a wrong socket. If you find trouble finding it please refer to the motherboard manual its everything there.

Wd connected with a usb to laptop, not responding, pls help ,steady white light on

Try it in all the USB sockets available in your laptop. Try it in a desktop computer. Try a different cable.
Sometimes the USB connectors in a laptop are unable to deliver the full current rated in the USB specifications, and the drive can't start.
Also cables sometimes add to the problem, as they have too thin wires causing too much voltage drop.

I'm installing a card reader that has 5 wire connector tto the mb. The old card reader has a 7 wire connector that fits the mb. Its an Asus m2n68-vm. Thanks

These card readers normally fit the auxiliary USB socket on the motherboard. They usually take up all nine pins, four on one row and five on the other with a 10 socket plug. One pin missing on the end of a row.Such card readers have an additional external USB port as well as card reader slots. If it is just a straight five pin plug but with four wires it just fits over one side of the nine pin USB socket on the motherboard. The black wire goes at the end with the missing pin.
