Most likely you would have to replace the port itself. On most laptops this is soldered to the board, however your model may be connected via cable, which is far more friendly to replace.

Removing the screws from the bottom of the laptop (Checking under any bumpers) and carefully removing and click-tabs holding the top and bottom of the case will allow for better inspection.

Let us know
Good luck

Why is my iphone not charging?


This means it's not getting a charge. I've just experienced this problem myself. I followed instructions online regarding cleaning lint from the charging port of the phone. Still no charge. I bought a charging cable that came with a car charger made by Belkin, this worked in the car, also allowed me to charge the phone from the pc, but wouldn't charge from the original plug. So I purchased an original Apple branded lightning cable today and it works. At last. So it turns out that my cable was faulty and another branded cable would not work with the Apple plug. So you need to try a known working Apple cable and plug and failing that clean out the port on the phone as lint is a common problem.

I'm going to throw this quick one at you but there are several problems that can stop the spark reaching the plug. Check the connection at the seat switch. The "connector" has a built in switch in addition to the switch that it plugs into. This is designed to prevent people from unplugging the connector and installing a jumper wire to bypass the seat switch. If this is not making proper connection it will kill the spark. You may also check the pluger switch for the seat as well. Hope this gets you in the right direction.

Red power light and reset button on but nothing else boots


Verify that the cpu is properly seated and latch is closed. Check that the power supply connector is properly installed and the power supply works. Double check your connections on the motherboard for the on/off and rest switches are correct. If you do not have the switch connector properly hooked up then you will get no response from the computer when it is pressed. Also check that the screws holding the motherboard to the case are screwed in tightly...the board uses these screws for electrical ground.

Read the labels for the connectors on the motherboard.

Polarity does not matter for the POWER and RESET buttons.

If the lamps for AC-POWER or HARD-DRIVE-ACTIVITY do not light-up when you expect them, then reverse the connector.

Try the PC SPEAKER connection one way, and then shutdown
the computer, reserve the connection, and start the computer.
If the "beep" at start-up is better, leave it as-is.
If the "beep" does not happen, or is quieter/distorted, reverse the connector.

Computer cases


an at case doesnt have the extra ports than an atx case has, take for instance an atx motherboard has printer port, comp port, usb and ps2 ports near the top left side, an at motherboard only has an at keyboard connector, all the other things are put in an empty isa/pci slot

Here is a picture of an AT motherboard note top right the keyboard port and the white strip behind that is a 1 row set of pins for the power as the switch is in the power supply and not on the motherboard
http://www.pcbuyerbeware.co.uk/images5and8.htm

And This is an ATX motherboard you can see the 20pin atx power connector, because the motherboard has an electronic switch to control the power.

No vga by pushing port buttons


In order to fully answer your question, a number of needful things must be inspected, reinstalled, confirmed, & tested:
  1. Reset. Try the reset button. You could use a paper clip to reach the reset button through the pin hole in the lower front left of the Zonet KVM unit.
  2. Inspect connectors. Each data/input/power connector/port requires all of its pins to be present & straight for full functionality.
    1. Inspect the entire length of each cable & cord to ensure that each has no damaged area.
    2. Seat each connector in the appropriate port of a computer that will be accessed via the KVM unit.
  3. Electricity. Inspect all affected devices & confirm that each has sufficient, uninterrupted electricity.
    1. It is possible for a Zonet KVM unit to display channel lights without direct power to the unit, but you should confirm that the unit is getting sufficient, uninterrupted electricity-directly through its own power cord. Unplug the KVM power cord & every connector & reseat each one (this performs a power reset on the KVM unit)-making sure that each connector is in the correct location (not just where it originally was). Thus, make sure that the keyboard, video display (monitor), & mouse are on the output side.
    2. Press the power button on your monitor. If it does not turn off the monitor's power status light (Off/On/Standby), then remove the power cord from the monitor & reseat it-to reset the monitor's hardware. If it does not turn on the monitor's power status light, then the monitor is either not getting enough electricity or it has a malfunction which requires troubleshooting & fixing (possibly through a fixya.com thread for that monitor model).
    3. Unlike USB devices, PS/2 devices usually require device connection prior to turning on that device. With that said, connect the keyboard & mouse KVM channel cable connectors to the computers & then turn on those computers that you intend to display through the KVM-connected monitor & then turn on these computers.
    4. Any computer that does not turn on has an issue that requires resolving (just like a monitor that would not turn on).
    5. Sometimes a keyboard/mouse interface issue can be resolved by replacing that interface device.
  4. The KVM Unit. When all else properly connects & performs, what does not properly connect & perform has the issue &, hopefully, that can be repaired without having to replace it.
