A USB port is a rectangular port approximately 13mm x 6mm. A USB connector is also rectangular and will generally be printed or stamped with the USB symbol.
There will most likely be one or two USB ports at the back of your computer. If you don't see any USB ports at the back of your computer, you can purchase and install a USB card in your computer.

Yes you should have one but it may be in use by something else, a printer or a scanner if you have either those.

Good luck :)

Not every computer has them, look on the back of the cpu and see if you see anything that looks like a pitchfork thingee that is your usb port.

It wasn't until around the 500 and 600 Mhz were coming out that really most motherboards all had USB. I'm sure some still don't though. It all depends on how much you pay for the mobo. Some have nothing, some have USB, and some have both USB and IEEE 1394.

I am using a HP Pavilion right now 300 mhz it came equipped from factory with 2 usb ports. I think it has to do with the motherboard not processor.
