    Hi to everybody, I have a problem with my usb ports. I used an external usb dvd driver(with an external supply) but the mac crashed and after that isight and usb ports no longer have worked. I opened my mbp and i saw that a component near usb ports (TPS2064DGN) appears to be blown. Help me please.. i don't know what to do. Thank you in advance.

    If you see obvious damage, and you can identify the part - and you have a source for that component, then you can try replacing it.
    I have tried that before, and another part was the real issue, and the replaced component blew out as soon as I powered on.
    If you want this to be a hobby, then keep replacing the components until you find the one that fixes it. You WON'T find tech data specifically for the Apple logic board, so you'll need a lot of luck.
    Easier, and much quicker, is to simply replace the logic board.

    My problem is that I don't know what "uppp" means?
    You've used it twice, so it must mean something to you.
    (I never text, so some of the buzzy lingo is hazy to me :D )

    WTF does "uppp" mean???

    If you have a visibly blown component then you'll need to take it for hardware repair, so Apple or an authorized repair shop, or even an unauthorized repair shop - but its unlikely to be fixable by a reset, setting or reloading the OS....but as the logic board is too expensive what other "help" are you expecting??
