does the acer aspire 5332 have a slot where i can fit a PCMCIA dual-USB slot-in card to as my USB ports are broken on my laptop and i was wondering if i can use this card. If so whats the best one to buy
To those that have posted that their ACER 5332 has broken USB ports, mine failed after a short in a usb device, both USB plugs stopped working, but showed up in device manager ok.
i googled forever and found no solution, its mother board damage apparantly. and more expensive to fix then worth.
i noticed when i used a external usb CD-rom which had one usb for power, and one for read-write- if the power cable was powering from another computer, the ACER would identify the CD Drive and it WORKED!
so i thought, the USB plugs must WORK but lack POWER only,
i went on ebay, brought a usb hub with its own plug power source and using this, i can now use my acer USB and the hub
