One of the front Usb 2.0 panel connections has stopped working correctly. I took off the front panel and it seems like the usbs are a bit loose from the circuit board. So I can plug in on one side, the side with the port that is closest to the actual circuit board but the port on the outside doesn't work right. If you plug something into it it's loose enough that it wiggles to the right further away from the circuit board. Then when you plug something in it isn't recognized by windows.

Usb ports don't like me this week. I was just messing around with it and now I think I made it worse. Too bad I can't order spare parts for the case.

This is one of the old Vostok that you used to recommend Scott.

Most of the front panel ports in aftermarket cases are poorly made, I recommend plugging a hub into one of the rear motherboard mounted ports and using that instead. Scott.

I actually asked my Mom if she still had the old PC I built for her years ago with the same case. She does it's just been sitting around for several years. So I will trying a swap with that front panel when I can get it. For now I'll just use the back. Thanks.
