In some cases it might mean the motherboard needs replacing which might not be cost effective. You might be able to use a powered USB hub, depending on what you need extra USB ports and what items you need to run on USB. will_chellam March 12, 2012 8:12:48 PM depends why theyve broken - if theyve burnt out because youre using high power portable hdds / charging your iphone constantly - you may have burnt out the controller - then its screwed. If youve physically damaged the port, it might just need a quick solder. Related resources broken USB ports - Forum Broken USB Ports HP dv4t-5200 - Forum Are my USB ports broken?

Thanks Frik i wouldnt recomend soldering a new usb port on simply. dont do this unless you can afford a new one as it will void any warrenty/guarantee and if you slip it could cause you to have to buy a new one anyway best thing to do is to look for a computer shop near you. a lot just want the buissness so will have a quick look for you if you ask Brett928S2 a c 248 D Laptop March 13, 2012 12:42:32 AM Hi My lappy repair company does this...
