Check to see if one of the USB ports is damaged. Sometimes they can be damaged and have connections touching the outside metal of the port which actually grounds the connection and will cause the other ports to not work either. If it is connected then use a flat tip screw driver (*with the machine off and battery out*) to make it not touch the outside of the usb port and try "other" USB ports that aren't damaged and see if it works. If it doesn't then you are looking at needing a new motherboard. Locate your closest ASP and take in for service, you can find them at support.toshiba.com.

First of all, I recommend you to Uninstall the USB Devices from the Device Manager and reinstall the Chipset Drivers as per the instructions below :
Click on Start and then on Run.
Type devmgmt.msc in the Run Command box and click on OK.
This will open the Device Manager window.
In this, click on the + mark next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers which will display additional USB Entries.
Right click on each of the entry and select Uninstall.
Click on OK if you get any confirmation window. Repeate the same process untill there are no entries left under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager window.
We are done with uninstalling the USB Drivers from the Notebook.
Now, restart the Notebook and close any window which says 'Found new hardware'
Now, download and install the Chipset Driver in your Notebook from the link below :
Save the file in the Notebook and double click to install the Chipset Drivers.
However, if the issue with the USB Ports persists, I recommend you to check again with different devices to confirm if the issue is with the USB Ports of the Notebook itself.
If the Notebook doesnot recognize any of the USB Devices after installing the Chipset Drivers, you may need to get the USB Ports of the Notebook replaced or go with a PCMCIA USB Card.
Hope this helps....

If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.
If you still want to go further with the recovery CD, follow these steps. Power off the laptop. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, press the power button once to switch on your notebook. When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key. When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery. Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next. Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again. Click Next to Start recovery.

If it isn't already, try plugging it in, it might have run out of battery power. Otherwise, you would have to remove the top shell of the computer (where the keyboard is housed) to get to your power button to make sure it's plugged into the motherboard properly, unless it's still under warranty, in which case, you could send it in and have them do it for you, so long as it wasn't the first problem. If it's not under warranty, and plugging it in won't work, just post a comment here, and I'll help you with making sure the power button is plugged in.
