I've got an HP Pavilion dv1000
I'm very happy with my lovely little laptop....my only issue...
My USB PORTS ARE DRIVING ME INSANE!!!
Okay, I have 3 ports on my laptop.
One on the left, and 2 on my right side.
I'm a mouse user. (I know groan!) And I keep getting notices from my computer that the USB port is not recognizing my mouse. And I'll get that ding that sounds on your computer when you plug something in...double ding like I unplugged it, even though I didn't.
The plug is not getting hit, I have the laptop on a lap desk higher so that it won't push on it when I'm sitting on my bed working.
(this is the third mouse, I've bought. It's BRAND NEW, it can't be the mouse.)
The left USB port is completely dead. The right top one is giving me the errors.
The bottom right one is still perfect, but I don't use it except when I have to for burning/printing that kind of thing. More like I'm afraid to use it and have it start doing what the top one is doing.
There's my issue.
Can I replace ports?
Someone told me I can't, it's part of my motherboard.
Any clue what I can do?
