The 4 USB Ports in the rear stopped working. Can they easily be replaced?

I have been forced to use the front panel USB ports as the rear ones (4) don't appear to work at all anymore.

Thoughts?

How to remove front panel to repair the front usb ports on an Acer Aspire E380 -?


The front USB connectors are usually either molded into the front case or held in via a clip or screws. Unfortunately, when they go out due to the tab within the USB port breaking, they are not easily replaced as each manufacturer creates their own proprietary connector...not the USB part but the hardware to hold the USB in place. So you will find the hardest part of this project finding the right connector or "jerry-rigging" the new one to fit.

Another alternative is to remove everything from the old case...the mainboard, all the drives and whatever else can be moved, and put it into a new case. If your current power supply is good and of a standard size, etc...you can get a used case for around $10.00 and put all the other things from the old one in it. Fortunately, this series of Acer seems to be pretty much generic so everything should fit....just make sure the "new" case has good front USB ports.

My son tried to put a usb lead into my pc the wrong way and he bent all copper pins inside is it easy and cheap to repair or could i connect the tower to my laptop???? theres a hard one for you teckno


No, it isn't hard.

Wrapping your mind around Quantum Mechanics, and String Line theory, is a little tough; though. lol!

Will make sense in a moment.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
Those are Front Panel USB ports.

On the motherboard are USB headers.
Small rectangular shaped pieces of plastic, that have contact pins sticking up.

EACH USB header will support TWO USB ports in the Front Panel.

Therefore; there will be two cables coming from two USB ports, in the Front Panel; and connect to ONE USB header on the motherboard.

IF, you feel the contact pins in the USB ports in the Front Panel, may be Touching each other; I strongly advise disconnecting the cables TO them.

Disconnect from motherboard.

Why?
Because if they touch each other, it will short the USB header out; on the motherboard.
This = No.

Then just use the USB ports on the back of the computer.

!O_O!

This is to save money, Mark; and save your computer.

Going further; If there are enough funds available, then I suggest replacing the Front Panel I/O/USB/Audio Control Panel Board,

Connect desktop to laptop to do what?
For USB port availability? IMHO that is like shooting yourself in the foot.

Also, how do you propose to accomplish this?

The USB ports in the Front Panel, are for ease of accessibility.
(As the young tyke has found, lol!)

Connecting a laptop greatly detracts from this.
Jus sayin'.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My dell latitude d600 usb ports stopped working how can i get it fixed. thans


If ALL the usb ports have stopped working, this is a problem with the USB controller. The short answer is that you cannot easily repair this. In all probability, the controller, or a circuit trace to it has blown or shorted. You would need to get another motherboard.

If one is still working, then you can get a PCIMCIA card to usb port that will give you 2-4 extra ports, but this will only work if at east one of your existing usb ports is still functioning

I think it would be much easier for you to use a USB hub instead.
It's much more easily available .

You can connect the hub to one of the rear USB ports

My usb ports stopped working. i unistalled them and restarted my computer. computer saw the usb ports on start up but still doesn't see any devices I plug into it. Is it a bad motherboard or a driver...


Some computers have both USB ports on the front and back of the case. The ones on the bark are directly off the motherboard while the ones on the front are usually connected by a separate cable. If you are trying the front ports, try one of the rear ones instead. if it works in the back, that cable may need to be reconnected inside the case.
