So the USB3 port on my laptop (yes, there's only one, it's an older Toshiba) broke. The Vss contact broke off and I don't see any way of MacGyvering something so it has to be replaced. It's many years old, but it still works fine for what I do with it. Used motherboards on ebay - even parts boards - go for far more than I'm interested in spending on it. I have tried to find a replacement port but nothing I've found is of the right design to fit the board. They're all either offset mounting (port ends up lower than the board), which won't work, or they are the right design and size but they have the 5 pins at the back. I found a Lotes catalog and found what I think is the correct part number (ABA-USB-124-P01), but get no results on search... Anyone have any suggestions?
