My trusty Acer Aspire laptop of many years has 4 USB sockets, two of which are not working. The problem appears to be that the 2 faulty ones are loose in their seating and move up and down so there is not a good connection. I am using a 4 port external USB plugged into one if the 2 good sockets and wonder if I can have the 2 faulty USBs replaced. I assume the USBs are either fused, or possibly plugged, into the motherboard, if the former, I suppose I am out of luck, but if the latter, maybe it just might be possible to replace them, they appear to be fitted in vertical pairs. As I am using a laptop it may well be impossible to rectify anyway, but I wonder if someone could advise me on this.
