Title:

Faulty / loose USB ports

Text:

Hi

I have a late 2009 model MacBook 13

Inch. The USB ports on the side are starting to become less reliable than they should. For example when I plug a USB in, most of the time it will connect properly, but then it will disconnect automatically. I'm pretty sure this is from the connectors cords being loose. Is it a possibility to replaced that section and the board with those ports in. Or would it be easier to buy a new laptop?
