    that would fry the usb port, which goes right into the memory and uP...

    could be an expensive solution for you

If you look into the USB port and there are four finger like metal contacts and one of these is bent and touching the metal casing it is shorting out the 5 volts supply. Remove the connection to the power supply and remove the battery then straighten the finers so they dont touch anything. Replace the power adaptor and try again - if the laptop now works that is fine but you will not be able to use that damaged usb port.

Audio jack seems to have short


Hello,

There is probably a broken solder where the audio jack connects to the mainboard. If you are in warranty, then contact HP and they will fix it free of charge. If not, then pick up a usb sound card. They are cheap ($20), plug into a usb port, and have a speaker and headphone jack. This will fix it.

Regards,

Joe

My girlfriend inserted a USB plug in upside down and damaged one of my ports, well the other port worked after that until it just suddenly stopped. Now I have old USB ports I can put in myself, I was just...


No, there are no failsafes in place. Just be very cautious, as soldering onto a motherboard, especially a laptop, is not recommended.

If there are ANY working USB sockets, then I would recommend using a USB hub, rather than replacing damaged ones (also, the damage may have caused problems with other components, so replacing the damaged sockets may not work).

Vaio will not turm on


you will most likely need to replace the dc jack, which is the port where your charger plug plugs into...

To test if your dc jack is bad... Remove the Battery, Plug the Power cord into laptop then attempt to power on... If no lights turn on, no fan spins.. your DC jack is bad...
DC Jacks Cost $6 to $10 but you need to find someone experienced to replace it, or you might end up with a dead motherboard as well..

Laptop was working fine, but doesn't turn on anymore...


a5e3d98.jpg You might have a Loose DC Power Jack.. Or.. if you're using the same AC Power cord for both laptops that you tested, you apparently have a break(short) in the Power charging cord which is quite common...

To Test the cord..take the battery out and try to boot with just the AC power cord plugged in, If it does'nt power up, try turning and slightly twisting the plug into the port.. LOOK to see if the power light is on or flickers...

Usb sound card (m -audio)


All usb devices require power, by pulling it out first, sounds to me you've short-circuited it. Buy another.

My external microphone jack and USB's doesn't work on Toshiba Satellite


I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and experience this problem with the mike stopping suddenly too. Your solution may not be as easy as mine was, but here goes ... Did you check the audio setup? Go to Audio Properties, and click Advanced so you can see the Microphone properties. Mine was muted and it wasn't me that muted it -- just seemed to happen suddenly and hopefully it's that easy for you!!!!
