when I say half of a usb port, I mean that it is one usb port that is built into the same chip as a second usb port. excuse the shity diagram but for example: USBA----USBB X.X - - - - - MOBO so the X.X is the "dead port" and the is the good port. so what the hell happened? I really need the port fixed as my network card, mouse, and keyboard are all dead and I'm forced to use USB variants of them. was using a USB hub not long ago but sadly that's not working right either.
