I have an Acer Aspire T120E. There are 2 USB ports on the front which I used to use regularly, following a problem with a WORM, which now seems to have been flushed out, the USB ports do not work. The ports at the back seem to be ok. Can you tell me what happened to them and how to get them working again.
I didn't get an OS disc with the computer but I have a disc that I burned as per instructions but I don't get a good feeling from it. I'm desperately hoping that you can help me. Regards, Julie

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.
If you have recently formatted or opened your case, this might just be a case of some wires not pluged in correctly, or chipset drivers not installed. Try installing chipset drivers again, if that does not work open your case and trace the wires back from the front panel and plug them out and back in again. Really hope this can help you.Please rate this.
