What manner of death the USB ports die? You might be able to resurrect one or more.
Does your laptop have Bluetooth? If yes, you can use a bluetooth mouse which won't require a USB port.
Hi there general use really not thinking where the lead was therefore putting strain on the port. I think the problem is that a proper connection cannot be made when you plug the mouse in. Don't think it has bluetooth is it easy to find out?
Do you have an Express card port? If her USB ports are truly dead and you don't have Bluetooth, you can purchase a Express card with USB ports. It would something like this: http/www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815503002
Hi probably a daft question, is it obvious if you have a express card port?
Hi it's from the Stone Group who manufacture them themselves. LOL nothing's hard to miss if you know what you are looking for! Looking on this laptop, there is nothing below the CD entry point as there is in the above photo. On the other side there is a slot that has dsd/mmc/ms by it - no idea what that is for> I will have a look in device manager as requested. Cheers!
only that it is the stone group model looks like NT303 or C5108 it was supplied as a 'gift'' to my eldest son who has autism, so I had no input as to what we got, it just turned up. I will not even ask what a SD Flash card is lol. U can tell I am from a pre computer generation!
