So the laptop I am planning on using for a car PC has dead USB ports, I recently took the PC apart and found that the problem is not with solder points but appears to be a motherboard issue. I am curious to know what my options are to fix the problem, I have looked into new motherboards but they are 150$ which seems steep. The other option I have been looking into is using a PCMCIA card with USB ports and than run a powered external hub, my question is, is this possible? I need usb for The Touch Screen, GPS Reciever, Wireless Mouse and Keyboard, Flash Drive, and External Hard Drive. That's a lot through a PC card. Please let me know if anyone has done this successfully. I really hate to replace the motherboard on this laptop.
