Unfortunately on your computer the usb ports are soldered to the logic board. I would check the ports very carefully--usually when the stop working its because one of the pins is out of shape and not connecting. If they are in fact loose from the logic board you have the choice of trying to resolder them or replacing the logic board. I am including a link to help you identify your computer. Then select logic board replacement to see whats involved. Good luck. Ralph
