    After my Snow Leopard upgrade (when I got it to finally work), all of my ports stopped working! I am on my HP laptop again because the USB ports and ethernet port are not working on my MacBook!!!

    This is absolutely appalling!!!

    Is there a fix for this? I only have so much time to fix it because the battery will not charge so I have it in sleep mode - I will only turn it on to fix it WHEN I know how to fix it so I can fix it without the battery dying.

    Could this be a hardware failure? The ports were all working fine before the upgrade!!!

    Sounds like an 80/40 problem to me, given your other thread.

    So from your other threads, your macbook is displaying things upside down, and no ports work including the battery charger.... Ok time to either do a complete reinstall or take it to the apple store because something is seriously messed up.

    <edit> miles01110, is 80/40 like a PEBKAC problem? </edit>

    I corrected the display issue by doing a clean install, as detailed on another forum. Hence in the first post I wrote "(when I got it to finally work)."

    These are definitely hardware issues or driver issues, but I am not a computer expert and doing yet another install might not be possible given my battery charging issues.

    No kidding????!!!!!!!! You had me fooled.

    Honestly if the problems with your machine are that bad I'd call Apple Support or take it in to an Apple Store or AARC.

    Yes, it's typically a result of an ID10T error.

    Are there any ways I can quickly reinstall all of the drivers? I'd like to save myself a phone call or trip to the Apple store. I have Social Anxiety Disorder.
