Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Hi, I have an HP DV1000, and amoung other issues, the usb ports (all 3!) are now pretty much dead. 2 are totally loose and moving off the motherboard, 1 will work when held in one way or another. Called tech support and was told maybe 300+ to fix, if fixable. Is there another way to get a usb port via adapter through another port? thanks, appreciate any help - ready to take a hammer to it!
I just fixed this problem on my dv1000. The problem I found was apparently the USB ports on lower right and left side only mounted on the mobo with light soldering and no soldering on the other side of mobo. Due to heat I guessed, they came loose. I opened the mobo (using guide from a pdf file on the net, sorry i forgot the exact guide but you can ask uncle google).
I took the mobo out and resolder those two ports with plenty of solder from the top surface only of the mobo as I unable to access the other side. Now they work again like charm.
The top right USB is different beast. It is on different card along with S-Video port and apparently in permanent damage.

How can I connect more USB devices to my computer?
The USB specification supports up to 127 devices, which means you could theoretically connect up to 127 different USB devices up to your computer. If you needed more than 127 devices, you could even install another USB card to connect additional USB devices to the computer.
Some users may be under the impression that because the computer only has two or four USB connections that the computer only supports that many devices. However, you can purchase USB hubs, which are USB devices that connect to the USB port on your computer and has several additional ports that other devices can be connected to.
