First let me say i take a rather blunt approach to o/s issues, this being said I think re installation of the O/s xp sp3 and then update of the drivers fro the laptop from IBM web site would be the best way to go with this. I feel that most likely the drivers for the ports you are using are not up to date for your devices (usb items).
I appologise if this is not what you wanted to hear but it is the best way to get working thos areas that are malfunctioning at this point.
Last if this does not solve the issue then the Motherboard would be the next item I would investigate as causeing problems a replacement would be called for if it is suspect as damaged or defective.
