You should have actually a short in the plug. Just specifically which plug are you refering to? On the computer? Do you have only one? If you have actually one that still functions you can have to acquire a hub and also only usage it. Or get a PCI USB card and also not usage the ports on the computer system. Or obtain a brand-new mobo if it"s on the mobo. Not certain if you could gain anybody to try and also settle it. If it"s a panel connector acquire a new one. If it"s constantly with the same cable then just acquire a brand-new cable.

Ya, the plug I was reffering to was removing the USB plug from the computer.Well, I"ll try messing roughly via it a bit more and see if I can narrow it dvery own some even more. I have actually a spare USB cable plug laying roughly, so I can test that out.Thanks for the suggestions.-Andrew
