Just wanted to see if I have any alternatives left before heading to the macshop to fix my USB issue. My mid-2010 Snow Leopard unibody MacBook Pro does not allow any device to work in the rear-most usb port, the one next to the external monitor port. The port does have power, which was confirmed by a blinking light on my usb stick. The USB port stopped working just a few days ago, when I noticed my wireless mouse was not working, which ended up being due to the port. The other two ports work fine, as does the rest of the computer, but on a side note it seems to have slowed down recently, within the last couple of weeks. Here are the things that I have tried to fix the port: Reset the PRAM using: control + option + P + R As shown here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1379 Reset the SMU using: shift + control + option +power As shown here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964 Apple Hardware Test (AHT) As shown here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1509 The AHT did not provide any information that anything was wrong. Called Apple Outsourced Support (I was almost fooled until they could not pronounce "bend", the accent was flawless until then). They had me do the PRAM reset and the SMU reset and then told me that there were other hardware checks that could be only done at the Mac Store. When asking if one of those happened to be the AHT, they said it was, but there were others as well. Here are the current alternatives as I know them, in no particular order: 1. Run additional software/hardware tests at home. 2. Go to the apple store. 3. Use one of the local authorized service centers. 4. Replace my USB 2.0 with 3.0 (in the future, when available). Thanks for the help in advance!
