Bought a Mac iBook G4 recently. For some reason the two usb ports are tempremental! If i plug something into them i often have to restart the laptop for them to work and even them have to hold them in place. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks Andrew

If you have to hold them in place, then it sounds like a loose connection, take it back either for a
refund, repair or replacement.

I do have to hold them in place and often restart the computer for them to work. I bought it from PC World less than 90 days ago. In theory I should get a replacement??

Yes, as from some time early last year, if the product has a fault within 6 months(I think), then the onus is on the supplier.

Take a look in the consumerwatch forum, their are many posting which explain your rights better than I.

Hope this helps.
