    Yes, it was one of my USB ports. I can see now where I can purchase a new card. I followed up you suggestion and went looking on the web. What really burns me is, I am still under warranty but I would have to take my laptop to a service location, 40 miles from my home and then leave it there for who knows how long. The service guy wouldn't even venture a guess on how long he would keep it. This is my last Toshiba. I should have know better as the Toshibas at work had the same problem with the ports.

You mean, USB. USB's have 5.0 volts power supply with current limit and protection. this means that up to certain extent, if you encounter a short circuit from the USB device, the port is well protected. However there will be instances when a defective USB device is plugged in the port will damage the port. There is most probably a small PCB mounted fuse that needs to be replaced. This will be difficult to find and should be sent to a qualified service center. On the other hand, you can buy a PCMCIA (cardbus) USB adaptor for less than $30 and you will have 2 or even 4 ports in your machine.

    It's not only Toshiba. Try to remember what you have plugged in before the USB was damaged. Our company uses IBM thinkpads, some of the PC USB were damaged by Palm Tungsten. In my case, I destroyed my USB when I connected an infrared camera. The problem is not in the device but in the docking station or the cradle. Sometimes when you dock or undock in the wrong way, the USB can be damaged.

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 3000 isn't responding, both the lights are on (the receiver and mouse) but its not tracking on my laptop screen. I tried re-syncing it buy not luck. I also tried...


Make sure there is nothing touching the trackpad on the laptop, as that will stop the mouse functioning correctly.

You could also try attaching the receiver to a different USB port on the laptop, to make sure it isnt a dead USB port.

Lastly, you could try downloading and re-installing the drivers from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/258785

Microsoft wireless mouse model 1007 , will not work


  • Put in the batteries Find the battery covers and slides it off. Insert the appropriate batteries. The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer runs off the computer's power and needs no batteries.
  • Plug in the receiver to the computer. Usually the receiver will plug into the USB port, but some plug into the mouse port. If all of your USB ports are filled, see if the mouse came with a USB adapter. The adapter fits into the mouse port. Be careful not to accidentally force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port.
  • Connect the mouse once you have it plugged in. The receiver should have a visible button that is easily push able by the average human finger. The mouse will usually have a very small hole with a button inside it that can only be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip. Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.
  • Position the receiver in a place that isn't far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk. The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver without working very well is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
  • Test your new mouse.

If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer manually.

If you plugged it into the USB port you may begin using it.

When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven
