hey everyone i need help.. AGAIN.. my. uh.. 'friend' busted one of my USB ports on my Acer Ferrari 3400. i think it was the result of not safely removing a USB flash drive... i couldnt stop him in time.. and his a immature guy going "in.. out..in.. out".. if you know what i mean.. anyways i want to know.. how much is it to get it fixed (approx) and what do i need to do to get it fixed? i wont have to change my mobo right? :eek: but its not that importnat since theres 3 more USB ports.. thanks!!

Removing a USB device before stopping it won't do anything.

I'd suggest taking it to a shop to have it looked at, but when you ask shops for things, it ususally doesn't come cheap.

Also, what do you mean by busted? I mean does it look damaged or what?

I think maybe the same thing happened with my ps/2 mouse port. I got it fixed though what i did was just opened up my case connected the mouse and pushed outside of the ps/2 case really hard while pushing my mouse is just enough to get it inside. I guess im saying just open up the laptop find the behind if the usb and just push it. But then again maybe the prob was with the mouse itself.

Don't open up your laptop and start pushing things around (hell, don't even open up your laptop), you'll only make it worse. Take it to a pro, as laptops are not easily self-fixed.

If you're not worried about portability, you may want to invest in a USB hub.

sorry i shouldnt have said busted. i meant the port is unusable and detects nothing when something is plugged in. oh okay.. i guess i need to take it to the shop to be fixed then but i was looking for a cheap way to fix it and maybe the price range to fix it if it was taken to the shops. ok.. thanks for your help guys. :)
