Dell Latitude L400 - USB G3 modem keeps crashing

\015 Hello all :o)I recently got this old pc from a friend and wanted to use it for work related e-mails and browser-based apps, but the USB has been really shaky. I think it must be related with power supply or something, because the modem will work fine for a while but will be disconnected everytime the fan starts. Also on this theory, the sound gets cranky everytime I change the angle of the screen. It may be useful to say that the battery is almost useless (lasts for about 5-10 minutes), so I only use it plugged to a wall. It's also noticeable that the USB port is usually troublesome for most of the things that I put there, but until I bought the modem I blamed it all on the OS.Since I don't know much about laptops, my best theory so far is that some little wire or other eletric conductor near the screen has become unprotected or otherwise damaged and is touching some other little wire/conductor that it shouldn't touch :oP Aprecciate any tips on this.Raul.\015
