I think there is no need to replace any thing:

  • First check out if the drivers for USB hub properly installed. To check out you should go Device manager and see if there is any component with yellow mark. If yes then re-install driver it will fix your problem.

If above does not fix your problem, then let me know:
  • How you made test and come to know that USB ports or not working?
  • Which OS you are using?

Thanks

Try this fix, turn off your computer properly then unplug the computer from the wall socket, then press the power button and hold for about 3-5 seconds. Then plug your computer back in, restart the computer then wait for the boot to settle into Windows.
After doing those things plug in a USB device into the same port as you have been doing. It should work now, if it does not plug it into another port if it does not go to all of the ports and try them all if none of them work then you cable may have come loose on your board or it is a bad USB HUB on your computer it is obvious it is not the unit if it worked on another computer.
You will have to replace it or if it works on one of them then change out the bad one. Replace it! Or go and get a 4 port USB extension using just one of the USB ports. So that you will have more ports without the fix. Replace any worn parts or devices that do not work anymore. John

Hello, I think you can plug in an external keyboard in one of the usb ports on the side (not the back ones) One is for an external mouse, and one for a keyboard.
If you have an external keyboard with a usb plug on it, try plugging it in and entering your password that way.
Doesn't everything bought new have warranty of some kind?-It does in the UK anyway.
Kind regards,

Problem with usb hub port


I am not sure what make of laptop you have but most of them have whats called a pcmcia slot on the dside of the laptop. You can buy very inexpensively, a card that will fit into the pcmcia and will give u anywhere from two to 4 usb ports.
Hope this helps
