    Default One usb port stopped working

    So i currently have the Macbook Pro Late 2011, Last week i was trying to cover songs so i need to connect the mouse for editing and the usb mic for the recording, But i found out that one usb port suddenly stopped working, It can't detect any usb devices. i tried to reset the smc and the PRAM but it didn't work. Do you have any solution for this guys?

    (For now i can't bring it to Digital hub because i have lots of school works to do..)

    Make sure it's the port that's not working, not your devices. A temporary solution is to get a usb hub that you can buy in any computer shop, while you can't have your mac checked at a service center. Hope this helps.

    try a cold boot. If the USB port still wouldn't work it could be a logic board problem

    it may be grounded.

    you still have your warranty covered, so worst case scenario, if some interventions still doesnt solve problem, then bring it to an apple service center, they would fix the issue, for free.

    It will probably take you longer to solve it than to bring it to an Apple repair facility. You have to make time. For now, backup your data with Time Machine.
