    2 of the 3 usb ports work on my laptop (and the third periodicly malfunctions)
    (when i plug something in the port moves around a lot like it broke off of the laptops motherboard, and i suspect this is happening with the only ps/2 port)

    Is it possible to hook a usb 1 hub to the ps/2 port and have everything fuction?
    (this laptop isnt really mobile i got it hooked up to my lcdtv)

    If not is there an external powered device (bc I'm not sure how much power is in a ps2 port)

    TY in advance
    -King

    How did we get from USB ports to PS/2 ports?
    If you need more USB ports just connect a powered hub to one of the ports that works.

    What you said was the third one periodically malfunctions, nothing about the other two?
