It sounds like some sort of power drain or short on the motherboard.
I recently made a repair job on a T41,casing on an IBM thinkpad T40 AND T41`S are very week.
My advice to you would be reinstall windows and see if it does it again,If it doesn`t then you will know for sure that it had something to do with windows.IF it still does after a clean installation of windows then its clearly a hardware fault.
*Hardware fault could be you`re power supply not giving enough juice(unlikely)
*Motherboard faulty/Or Shorting somewere.If thats the case then a refurbished motherboard would do the trick.
all available ports are not recognized? have you tried other known good usb devices on those ports?if other devices are recognized then it is an issue with the usb device you were first trying to hook. if not, then it may be the port issue or driver. so update chipset driver for your pc. use ibm's website to check for drivers of your pc.
Go to IBM website and look for drivers for your computer model (T41) and locate the network drivers. (This obviously has to be done from another computer with internet access). Download and save the setup file to a flash drive and then run the setup on the IBM T41
Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.
Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.
