Idea flex USB ports not responding

2014-03-30, 12:14 PM

I got the Ideapad FLex 15 at costco less than 90 days ago and have had trouble the whole time with the USB ports not responding to my portable devices (phones) not even my windows phone. This is really frustrating because my music files are on my old iphone because my last computer crashed and this one doesn't have a disc drive. 


Anyhow, my question is is this a common issue? Should I just return it? I have trouble shooted it for quite a while, and while the portable devices will charge while attached the computer doesn't recognize them and at some points it says that the port is having power issuses. I am still able to return but I guess my real question is should I exchange it for the same model or should I just skip it and get a totally different computer? The computer is too new for me to feel like the trouble of going through the warrantee labrynth could be worthwhile.
