Hello, I have a Packard Bell Imedia 5070 bought in 2002. It has 2 USB ports on the front & someone told me it has 2 at the back on the motherboard. I wouldn't know a m'board if it got up & waved at me so is there anyone out there who can help me please? Or was my PC born without these rear ports? Sylvia

Your rear connections may not be 100% identical.

Hi das_stig, Many thanks for trying to help but the model shown is a later model than my Imedia 5070, bought in 2002. I've looked on the Packard Bell website and it shows my model and, whilst the spec. says there are 2 USB ports at the front (correct), it also says there are 2 at the back on the motherboard. There are definitely no USB ports visible so I can only assume I would have to take the back off to find the motherboard and I don't feel confident enough to do this, unless someone gave me clear instructions on how to go about it. I have bought an external hard drive but my system won't recognise it & the Seagate support website says it is more likely to recognise it if plugged into a rear USB port - hence my problem. Thanks again. Sylvia
