it probably is the problem. Make sure to clean the cpu heatsink from any dust. Also apply new thermal paste on the cpu and on the gpu or southbridge chip. Usb problems often occur from overheating. As for changing the chip it can be done if you have experience in bga soldering otherwise youll mess up the printboard. you can order a new rebbaled chipset and change it but again at your own risk. If you havent done it before a hundred times dont try it. You will fail. Believe me I know. Been doing it quite some time.

Another easier solution is just to heat the chip with a hot air gun. buy some solder flux, apply some on the edges and on top of the chip. Make sure to use aluminium foil to cover the rest of the MB and cut out a square where the chip is located. Then apply heat at about 350 degreees for about 3-4 minutes constantly moving in slow circles over the chipset at about 1-1.5 cm distance. Make sure not to concentrate too much heat at one place. Look up some videos on youtube about bga reball chips to get a general idea of the proces. It will probably work. Hope this helps.
