Is it possible to repair the USB port by the HDMI port (2nd incident)

본문:

So my Latitude E6540 has an issue with the USB port on the HDMI side. What happens is if I plug anything into it and touch the connection the wrong way, the device will disconnect and will not work again until it is plugged in again. I've had this happen befire under warranty, so it's not a new defect with this series of machines. The last time it happened Dell replaced the motherboard.

I have confirmed it happens with my printer over USB (HP M401n) and Xbone Wireless receiver. When this happened the first time I tested it with two different devices and determined it was caused by a bad motherboard. I am using the same procedure as I did the first time.

This is the second time it has happened, and now I'm out of warranty. I forgave it the first time thinking it was a DOA board, but 2 failing the same way is a little suspicious and may point to a hardware design flaw.

Is there a way I can fix this permanently or is the defect unrepairable? Seeing as this is the second board with this issue, I believe Dell had a bad run of parts or the boards have a serious design flaw. Obviously I'm hoping it's just a bad part lot but I also can accept it's not a defect that can be corrected to the point it won't come back.

I can already see a new board is just as much as a whole computer, as you can also see here:

* A complete i7 E6540 can be purchased on eBay for [https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Latitude+E6540+i7&_sacat=0|$300-400]. This would be in better shape too, most likely.
* To get the motherboard from a good vendor that will back it, it would cost me $200 for the bare board from [https://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=20479|PartsPeople].

While I'd LIKE to repair the system with a new motherboard, it doesn't make economic sense. The motherboard is nearly as much as a entire used laptop with the same CPU (4810MQ/IGP+8790M). While a motherboard is hard to justify, I'm hoping the motherboard I currently have can be repaired at the board level.

Are they any known issues with these motherboards? If so, does it impair a long term repair?
