If the port is soldered on the motherboard, there's unfortunately little you can do about it. Unless you have advanced soldering skills, I would suggest to leave it alone and use another USB port with a USB hub to get the extra ports.
You can easily find a USB hub on many dealer shops (and online). I would suggest a self-powered one, if you intent to connect several devices on it.
Hope that helps!

My 4 males A-plug of USB flash drive are scratched, how to fix it?

Scratches should not stop it from working unless a lot of the gold contact has been removed. Try cleaning the contacts.
If still no work, it may have been blown up or physically damaged.

I insert my memory stick and the computer doesn't read anything

Does the port work with any other device (preferably one that you know works elsewhere)? Try plugging the stick into a different port. If you use a hub, try a port directly on the computer. Does another computer read the stick?

If the stick reads elsewhere, it is a port issue. Check if the ports are disabled for security or power-savings. Check if there is dirt on either the port or the device. All other problems are a device failure. (If it lights up, then it is the memory itself. If it doesn't light up, it could be a bad voltage regulator (Zener diode).)

If your device is under warranty, you can send it in for replacement. However the data will not be retrieved unless you pay for that service at a data recovery shop.

I hope this helps.

UBS port won't allow my memory stick to go in is there a lock on it???

Hello !

Be certain you are trying a USB port. It is rectangular in shape. The USB memory stick will only go in one way. Try flipping it over.

If still a problem ...

Either your USB memory stick is bad or your USB port on your notebook is bad.

Try another memory stick or try a different USB port on your notebook - should determine which is OK and which is bad.

Hope this helps.

I have 3 usb ports( two at the back and one on the

Check to see if something else will work on the side port. It may not necessarily be a dead port. Just something you should know too; I used to work for Wal-Mart in the electronics department and they had to recall all their firefly flash drives because they had a tendancy to malfunction. Try using it on a different computer, it might just be a dead flash drive. I hope this helps your problem and I hope your flash drive didn't have anything too important on it :x

This is most likely a problem with the USB port you are plugging it into or a problem with memory - you could just be running too many programs simultaneously which causes everything to lag.

If it is a problem with your USB, try all other USB ports on your computer. If none of your USB ports are working and you have determined that it is not because of other problems like memory, you can get external USB expansion ports, which would plug into other ports on your computer.

To check if you are using too many programs, press ctrl, alt, and delete simultaneously to bring up the task manager. Click on the the Performance tab which will show you the usage of your computer's resources. If CPU usage or Physical Memory are near maximum capacity, you should click the Processes tab to see what programs are running and see if there is anything you do not need which can be shut down.

Another good tip to reduce memory usage is to download the free program Spybot Search & Destroy, which finds and removes harmful spyware, which can endanger your privacy as well as slow down your computer.

It should not matter which USB port you use.Have you used the USB port you have the printer plugged into with anything else?
If you have a USB memory card try this on that usb port just to test the port is not faulty.
