Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

USB port loose

\015 I had my Sony NW-E015F MPS player conncted to the USB port on the back on my laptop to charge. I almost dropped my laptop but when I put it down it bent the USB port on the MP3 player. If I fiddle with it enough I can get it to turn on while connected but my laptop is not reading that its there. Therefore I can't charge it or transfer any files. I opened up the MP3 player end and removed the end cover but I can't tell if anything is broken...I think its loose farther down inside...any suggestions?\015\012I have the same problem!! My USB port in the back of my laptop is so loose that even my cooling pad isn't getting power. Someone please help! Thanks! :-)\015

\015\0121) Replace the motherboard of the laptop. (would need to be done by a professional, and may cost as much as a new laptop depending on the model)
\015\0122) Learn to deal with it. :)

I have a 3 year old MicroExpress Desktop computer which was just moved to a different location (which leads me to believe that a circuit board simply needs to be reseated). My mouse is working fine.
