If its a front port, the design is prprietary so there is not real easy way to replace it short of finding the same model and taking it from that. if its a back port it would require a really good soldering job and in most cases since they have started to use wave soldering, near impossible to do without damaging the mobo. If it is a front port though you could check the solder joints and wires. Most of them have exposed joints and thats a bit easier to fix. Or do it the easy way and get a PCI USB card. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
