Yes, but I would not recommend it as you would be soldering wires to your motherboard and run the risk of frying it in the process.
Not to mention you need to desolder the other ports first.

LG laptop usb ports not working


do you have the program needed to get what you have on your flash drive? If you don't have a photo program or pdf program or what ever to open it, it won't work. try connecting something else that uses USB port to it and see if that works, then you will know if its a program problem or your computer. if its the computer, you can replace it.

My usb sometimes cannot be read by the computer and sometimes it can be read. What is the problem that arises


The USB port on your computer is most likely loose. Chances are, it's come loose from the PCB and can be soldered back on. If you are good with a soldering iron and not afraid to take apart your laptop you can probably fix it your self. Example.
Other than that try reinstalling your USB Drivers.
- Right click on computer--> go to manage --> click on USB Adapters --> right click then properties--> uninstall then reinstall the drivers

Is there a USB switch like a KVM switch? Where do I go for the best price on such an item?


All you need is a USB hub, I suggest you get a powered type because if any USB device you connect into this USB hub that draws excess power from the laptop, you will get an error power message. A powered USB hub does not rely on power from the laptop's USB port.
These USB hubs allow you to connect several USB devices at once. Most USB hubs have 4 USB ports.

USB Port not working


If you are running Windows XP or Vista, here is a "magic fix" that seems to work. (I have NO idea why it works, but it has on many occasions restored the USB ports on three different computers.
Turn off the laptop. Remove the power cord AND the battery. Press the start button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the laptop, and reconnect the power cord if desired, and turn it back on. See if the USB ports work now. Post or comment back with the results.

Broken USB Port compaq presario v5000


The hardware USB ports are identical for both versions. Only the software and hardware controller are different.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron with a fine tip for this job.
You need to dismantle the laptop completelt to remove the motherboard from the plastic case. Take a note of where the screws come from because they may be different lengths. Don't apply excessive pressure on the plastic case else it will break, start from one side and work around each side, the plastic case has catches to hold the halves together.
Start by rmoving the hard drive, CD/DVD drive, battery etc.
