This is usually going to be a part replacement problem. the black piece is part of the connectors. and backs up or guides the connectors. you can go to your local computer parts store such as frys, or an electronics parts house. and buy the connectors unless it is one that is attached to the motherboard in the back of the computer. if this is the case and you do not have enough usb ports, then you have to get an external usb hub. usually a powered hub is best.

The USB port is likely broken for good. However, you can buy USB hubs like this one that take one USB port and splits it into four. They're also really cheap, that one being around $3.

Also, if you only need two USB ports, there is a third one in the back of your console, right above the network port.

A small black cao of the usb port drop out, what


Well, unfortunately, this is usually, fixed INSIDE the USB port. If it has broken off, then really the ONLY way is to replace the entire USB port Socket. I have fixed them before, by using a tiny amount of "Super Glue" and mating the two surfaces back together and it has worked, sometimes it will not work, it is very fiddly, but can be done. be careful not to get glue onto the contacts. I usually use a magnifying glass and fine tweezers.

My MP3 USB is not recognized by my PC,


May be a bad USB cable. Check the connector on the end that plugs into the pc, something inside may be broken preventing the connection. Sometimes the flat plastic piece inside (white or black) breaks loose if you forced it into the usb port or felt resistance when inserting it. If it came with software, you may have to reload it especially if you are using Windows 98.

Broken usb port, Acer desktop


May be hard to find.

If you have a spare PCI slot in your motherboard, I'd buy a cheap USB card and install it.

Here's some cheap ones online:

You may also be able to get one on eBay reasonable.

Front usb port of xbox looks broken, unit does nothing now


Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.

Broken Prong inside connector for mouse


If the ps2 port on the main board is broken you will need to replace the board. If this is the case and your computer has usb ports on it just go out and buy a usb mouse.

 

If the part that is broken is from the mouse by using tweezers try to gently remove the broken part from the board. if unsuccessful use the usb port with a usb mouse.
