USB ports not working DV 1000

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!

Re: USB ports not working DV 1000

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.

Re: USB ports not working DV 1000

How can I connect more USB devices to my computer? Answer: 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.

Can i charge my hp pavillion dv1000 from my desktop through a usb port?

NO! You will damage one or both computers. You really need to repair the laptop or ac adapter to correct the charging problem. The HP dv 1000 as well as the other HP entertainment laptops have had a lot of problems. Not charging just one of them. I would strongly suggest a professional repair of this laptop.

Need to replace usb ports dv1000

If the problem is with the ports themselves, you may not be able to or be willing to resolder them. How about just adding a USB card to get by?

RE: HP laptop no power

Give this a try -

1. Unplug all usb devices.(Printers, MP3 players, webcams, etc etc)

2. Remove the battery and power cable.

3. Press and hold the power button for 30sec.

4. Plug in just the cable (no battery)

If this doesnt work then it most likely needs a repair.

Also check the USB & power port for damage or if the charger jack is loose when you plug it in.

I see that dv1000 Notebook is pretty old(3 Years) and it is too late to complain that it was not working from the day it was purchased.
I donot think this is eligible for esclation.

USB Ports are not working

s.gif s.gif

A USB device, such as a camera, scanner, or printer, loses its connection and stops working unexpectedly. The device may appear to work fine when Windows first starts up but later stops working. Use the steps in this document to resolve this issue. Disable power management on the USB hub To preserve power, Microsoft Window XP tries to disable USB when a device is not used. Under certain circumstances this function does not work and may cause USB devices to fail to respond when called. To resolve this issue, disable power management on the USB hub by doing the following:
  1. Click Start , and right-click My Computer .
  2. Click Properties , then click Hardware .
  3. Click Device Manager .
  4. Double-click the Universal Serial Bus Controllers branch to expand it.
  5. Right-click USB Root Hub , and then click Properties .
  6. Click Power Management .
  7. Deselect Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power .
  8. Repeat Steps 5 through 7 for each USB Root Hub.
  9. Click OK , and close Device Manager .
If this doesn't help download everesthome. Run the program click on the chipsets and google the northbridge for updates.
