Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L305-S5894 Notebook ?

Usb damage child damaged USB ports with needle nose pliers . Should I buy new computer or does extended service plan cover this even tho, it was hardly accidental .


Answers :

It wouldn't hurt to be honest about what happened with the service plan provider and see what they say. It would be a shame to have to replace your computer over a broken USB port. You can always purchase a USB hub which plugs into one USB port and supplies you with two or more USB ports.

Good Luck,
