    I have had the worse luck with this laptop, the most recent problem that I'm experiencing is I tripped over my printer cord and ripped out the plastic tab inside the USB port. :mad: I know that I can't fix it on my own, but I would like to know how much this problem will cost to fix. I've called around to ask about repair costs and everyone keeps saying I need to bring it in for an estimate. But I need my computer for work and can't leave it overnight. They say that it can be repaired one of two ways, either the manufacturer has a separate card that can just be replaced or it actually has to be manually repaired. I just want a general estimate for how much it would run for either/both ways it could be repaired, as well as how much it runs for labor costs.

    Also the memory card reader has not worked since January, I know thats not related but I'm just wondering if there is some defect in the ports.... or if I'm just destructive.

    I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 that was purchased in March 2009, if that is helpful in finding out which way it should be repaired.

    Thank you!!!
