Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S120 Notebook

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
