    Look at the schematics online at the MSI site, or their online manual. You are not likely to do any damage attempting a fix. Otherwise, just spend some time with a magnifying glass to inspect all the possible pins on the board for labels that will identify them.

    easy fix.

    yellow and green are data

    red and black are positive and negative for power

    You plug in your red to positive
    plug in the black to ground

    yellow or white is usually data (negative)
    and green is usually data positive

    if you see a number next to it -this simply means the usb port

    so a sample pin out would be for USB port 1
    yellow1 (white) data-
    green1 data +
    black (ground)

    for port two it would be the same
    yellow2 -
    green2 +
