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

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?
