I had "Power Surge on USB hub port" on my Y430 and now the USB port doesn't work

2009-04-23, 18:19 PM

Hi guys,

 

I bought a new (sealed) Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 on TigerDirect.ca

 

Everything was working properly, but, yesterday, I had this message from Windows when I plugged my Kingston USB Flash Drive (left side port).

 

"Power surge on USB hub port"

 

So I unplugged the USB key, rebooted the system. Plug my USB key again, no warning message, but no USB key detected...

 

So, I reboot the computer, with the key plugged in, going in the BIOS and when I take a look in the boot device order, my Kingston flash drive is not detected. If I do the same thing with another USB port, it works.

 

I tried to mount my USB key on Ubuntu too, nothing to do.

 

So, is there something to do? Or my USB port is dead and I must ship my laptop to Lenovo?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

Jack

You can look inside it - maybe just a shortage and crossings of contacts inside port.

If so just fix it by a little pin.

if not - send for repair.

Thanks but, if I open my laptop, the warranty is broken, right?

He meant look into the USB port on the laptop, not look inside the laptop by means of disassembly.
