So i have like 3 usb ports on my laptop, 2 on the right and 1 on the left.

Now on the left side one is broken, cause it seems to have a loose contact, the other one however just topped working.

Tried to reset him but it didnt work. The one on the left was doing fine, so i used a external usb-hub with powerunit to connect both my mouse and external soundcard. However, now if I don`t use the external Hub anymore, that left usb-port is dead aswell.

any ideas?

It's possible that you have a short in the broken port that is affecting the power supply to all usb ports.

 

You will need to have the ports inspected to ensure that there are no touching wires or contacts.
