The power connectors that are feeding the USB from the inside seem to be ok. The data connections of the USB are bad. Maybe with some very careful professional soldering of the data connectors on the inside of the USB, your problem would be resolved.
You may be using the wrong USB port for the device. Try disconnecting the USB device, restart the unit and use the rear USB port. It sounds like you are having a conflict with one of your devices. example: using two mouse, USB2 device, running on a USB1 supported port, external Hard disk or drive setting not configured correct. If you are still having problems, check the BIOS setting and reset to default. Save and restart unit. Next, check your device manager for flags. If you see anything outstanding, remove it and reboot. Once completed, try the USB port and see if your device is usable.
Next time you may want to list the device and your operating system used, to help the tech understand your problems.
Hope this helps you.
I have the dell inspiron 5160 works great a little slow but no big deal. The problem I have as of Monday the power cord will not stay in and now will not charge. Is it the power port? Can this be fixed?
my friend has a latitude d600 that has the power port messed up in the back of the computer. i got him this thing, some people call it a docking station some people call it a port replicator, but you dock the computer to it and then you plug your power into the docking station and it charges it that way. you get extra usb ports and stuff like that and there is no repair involved. i dont know if you would want to try something like that maybe.
I'm not a great fan of USB ....ever since a USB external hard drive decided to become undetectable halfway through a back up once ....
Since the problem occurred after moving the PC, the first thing that comes to mind is that some wiring has come loose .... but as it's a laptop that seem hardly likely.
Have a look in Device Manager (Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager) ....see if there are any yellow warning marks next to any of the USB devices.
One trick that often works in these cases is to uninstall all the USB Root Hubs in Device Manager (right click each one and select uninstall/remove), then reboot the pC and let Windows reload the devices. Don't ask me why ....but this works 90% of the time.
This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
This is either a driver glitch or a faulty port. Start by uninstalling the usb drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the ports and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't fix it, then the ports are faulty and will need replaced. The usb ports are very simple devices, when the drivers are present, they either work or they don't. Other than the drivers, they have nothing else to go bad other than the port itself, and in general, when one goes they all go.
