    The USB port on the left-hand side of my PowerBook G4 does not work. The one on the right-hand side does work. Other than getting a USB port hub what troubleshooting techniques would you suggest to get it working again?

    Thank you for looking.

    Is the USB showing up in the system profile?
    :apple:>about this mac>more info>USB
    If it's not showing up there, I'm not sure there's anything you can do to "revive" it.
