Can dead USB ports be repaired?
I was in the process of moving my old G5 and was re-attaching peripheral items. When the power source was applied to an Adaptec 7-port hub it shorted with an audible pop. Since that event I received a screen message that stated "USB over-current", now none of the USB ports on the G5 will do anything. Is this problem a damaged motherboard and a replacement is in order or is there something else that may fix my problem?
Is this a good question?
