repair usb ports on late 2009 iMac?
My usb ports recently failed. I get an error saying that they are drawing too much power and have been disabled. Nothing is plugged in to the ports. I did recently start using a belkin self powered hub. I think it is the culprit that did the damage. I tried doing an SMC reset to no avail. My iMac is out of warranty. I had a "apple approved" tech diagnose it. He said it needs a new logic board. That is over 1,000$ out of pocket! I just want to have my usb's work. Is it possible to replace just the parts on the logic board that are fried or do I really need to get a whole new logic board?
Is this a good question?
