I'm having a bit of an issue with the USB ports on the right side of my laptop. The cord got caught on a doorknob and the laptop fell out of my hands and I couldn't catch it in time. The laptop works fine and all, but the USB ports on the right are damaged. One of them is very obviously damaged due to the mouse being attached when it fell(Part of the USB port is now stuck inside of the mouse usb connector, so the mouse is useless now until I can tweeze the piece out of it). However, the other USB port is damaged, but you can't tell. I don't see any damage to it whatsoever, but nothing will connect to it, it won't insert, at all. I've tried a USB connector and another mouse, but neither will insert into the port, so my guess is something there is damaged. Is there anyway I can fix that one without damaging the laptop altogether?(I don't want it to kill the laptop, especially when I have translations to do).

You probably did some internal damage, so you'd probably be better off sending it to it's manufacturer.

    Similar to how there's a TV with a built-in PS2.

    I do have a Dreamcast mobo I wouldn't mind doing the SD card mod to

    But the money of it makes it bleh
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't recommend those cheap SD card adapters, they feel so flimsy even though the price for them are way too expensive, and are a dollar store SD card reader.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I saw that you can do an internal SD card mod, I've seen a diagram for it somewhere.

    Iirc theirs a mod that directly solders to the main board
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Aha found it

    I haven't seen any available kits for the mod

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I suppose you have to resort in buying the components for yourself, after all they cost little.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Why not they do the same with the BIOS replacement kits?
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I'd rather wait for a kit to become a available

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I'm happily more confident to do it myself without a kit.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Unless there are additions that need to be done.

    You're right.

    Why it's better to buy directly from reputable sources

    Yes, and not from some shitty Chinese store.

    They are many repetable component stores to name such as RS Components.

    But then there's added tax to the mix.
