Unless your good with a soldering iron. Take it to a repair shop. If you are good then you have to take it apart down to the point that you can get at the motherboard. De-solder the broken usb and replace it with the new one you bought. Up to you.

My Asus x7sa-ds51 laptop will not regonize a card reader I inserted into the usb port

Make sure all the USB ports are enabled. Make sure all the USB ports are free of debris (use duster). If the USB ports work with other devices, then I'm thinking that it a software problem; Is the card reader plug and play, or does it require drivers? Is the device compatible with your OS? And make sure everything is up to date.

Replace front usb

Replacing the stock mounted usb port, that would require you some screwing, but it depends on your system. You can try look at ebay for similar model of casing or other online store.

There are some external Usb port that can be mounted on 5" bay, or try any 8 in 1 external.

I keep get a connection error. Ck that USB cable is connected and the power switch is on. Each time it comes up. Help

Make sure you have the USB plugged into the back USB ports on a desktop computer and try each of the different ports on a laptop computer. What Singer doesn't tell you (and probably isn't aware of) is that the back ports provide more voltage than the front ones (and is also true of certain ports on your laptop). The USB cable and your computerized sewing machine require more voltage than the other ports allowed.

Give this a try-it should do the trick.

My usb port my mouse is plugged into wont hold, it's loose can this be replaced?

This is not an easily replaceable part, and often these usb ports are directly soldered onto the motherboard. A good solution might be to buy a USB PCMCIA card that plugs into your PCMCIA card slot. This will give you extra USB ports, and won't require surgery on your laptop!

Hey my mouse wont work help

How old is the mouse? Corded or cordless? PS2 or USB?

In general, for USB mice that don't work, check that the USB ports are working by trying the mouse in a different port. Try another (known working device) in the ports and see if that responds. If a PS2 to USB (or USB to PS2) adapter is in use, replace it or just replace the mouse (remember the mouse dongle is not interchangeable with a keyboard type).

Mice are relatively cheap and will fail. Corded mice will get a break in the cord over time - replacing them is simpler than trying to find the break. Cordless mice require checking the batteries and the receiver.

I hope this helps.

I have a dell dimesion 2400. the usb ports will not work. What do you suggest i do o fix this problem

1. Usually this is a setting in the BIOS (Basic input/out systems) which enables the usb ports. Sometimes a firmware upgrade from the manufacturers web site will resolve this issue. ( support).
2. This could be that the usb port have been shorted out. This will require a tech to resolve at the mother board level. Most time this will require a mother board replacement.

Compaq evo laptop, getting to and replacing the USB ports.


In almost all cases (90%) I have seen, the USB ports are not replaceable or repairable since they are soldered to the main board.
Additionally, the manufacturers generally do not sell these components seperately and only as part of the main board.
Before going through the effort of getting to the ports I would contact the manufacturer (HP) and see if you are able to obtain the (USB) part to fix.
you may be faced with having to replace the mainboard which will require quite a bit of labour and removal of items including a high cost that you may opt not to choose?

If you need more help in deciding on what option to choose let me know

All the usb ports have stopped working, so my printer/scanner and mobile phone downloads are not accessable, nor is my external hard drive that i back up everything on. Front and back of machine!

You may want to check the BIOS settings; reboot and repeatedly press F2 until the setup screen appears. Check the onboard devices section and make sure that the onboard USB ports are enabled, then press F10, select 'Save and exit'. The system will reboot; check the ports again

Both USB ports use the same driver, so if one works and one doesn't, you have a mechanically bad port. You'll need to replace the hardware to solve the problem. There are usually a lot of bad D600 motherboards on Ebay. Or try to find just the USB port you need. Fairly simple replacement task, but laptop dis-assembly will be required to reach the part.

My two front usb ports cant read usb hard drives

Some external USB drives require external power sources. Typically this is done either with an external power supply that connects to the drive or a second USB cable that connects to the drive and a second usb port on the pc. I have even seen one drive that comes with a Y cable. one end goes to the drive and the 2 usb plugs go to the pc.
