USB Malfunction Toshiba Satellite A45 S120

My laptop has four USB ports. I have, in the past, used a head set and webcam with them and they've worked just fine. But the other day, neither one of them would work on ANY of the ports. The webcam would turn on, the computer would recognize it, and then the webcam would turn off after only 5 seconds. Same with the mic. I would plug it in, I could hear myself talk through the headset for 5 seconds, and then it would turn off.
I've heard two things: either a virus in the USB ports or maybe I need to update BIOS. Any thoughts?!

Yeah it could be a virus or mother board might need to be replaced because your usb ports are integrated with the motherboard. First try to put a keyboard or mouse on the usb port just to test its functionality,if mouse or keyboard works,that means it could be your usb/windows registries might have been corrupted..you might need to install windows,if mouse or kbd didnt work,it could be the motherboard/usb ports

I don't know how to use wifi on my Toshiba A45 S120


Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings." This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet. Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks." Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network. Select "Manage Network Connections." This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection. Engage the wireless connection. Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection. Select "Connect/Disconnect." Wait for the IP address acquisition. It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address. When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength. Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.
