Usb problems on u400 (a40)

I'm down to one usb port, the computer is less than five months old! (First and last toshiba for me)
Really need usb ports as i'm using the computer for music (lots of midi ins).
Feel free to ignore this next question, I just want a quick gripe.
Why does everyone keep telling us how wonderful toshiba computers are?
This is without question the worst computer we have owned. It is so glitchy that I really can't believe we bought it less than five months ago, and looking on the internet a lot of people seem to be having similar problems.

    I don't have any usb porst left and I have had the computer for 2 years. Power still flows through them though, which is fortunate because the only way to get my screen to turn on is if I am charging something like a phone or ipod with the computer. It glitches up all the time and I want it to die.

    Actually Toshiba is one of the worst computers you can buy...they might be able to make T.V.'s but not computers. If the warranty is still good maybe you can send it back for repair...then once repaired sell it and cut your losses..since it'll probably never be the same anyway..at least that's what I would do...stick with a company like Dell..great computers, good service and can customize..good luck..

What drivers do i need to re-install for my usb ports


The usb ports don't need drivers to work in basic mode. Sounds like the supply to them has failed. Try and get your laptop replaced and remember the last usb device that you plugged in. don't use it again. It was probably faulty.

Pointer works until I login, then sticks in middle of screen. Help?


They say to err is human, but to really mess things up takes a computer. Nothing is more frustrating than to have a computer freeze, shut off with no warning, or, worse, crash completely. One of the more common errors a PC will give you is the freezing of the monitor. With a few simple troubleshooting tips, you can overcome that.

Press Crtl-Alt-Delete (at the same time). This will give you a box generally used to terminate programs. Using the arrows, if you can, shut down all programs running (i.e., Word, Internet Explorer, etc.). Sometimes, it is an error within the programs or with your computer trying to process them all at once that causes your computer to freeze. This is especially true if you have low RAM (anything less than 500 or so MB or RAM). Turn off your computer and restart it. Many times this will end whatever error up above was causing it to drag. If the computer is still frozen when it comes back on, go on to the next steps. Press the tower's power button and hold on to it until the entire system shuts down. Turn off the main power switch and turn it and the computer back on. Sometimes a computer only looks like it is shutting down, but in actuality is not. This should solve the problem. If it doesn't, move on to the next steps. step 4. Try a different mouse. If you have a mouse that connects to a PS2 port, the mouse could be bad. If the mouse doesn't work in that port, the port may be bad, too. Many times people only think their computer is frozen, but really the mouse doesn't work. step 5. Try connecting a USB mouse into a USB port. If it works, you now know that either your PS2 mouse or port are bad. If you have a USB mouse to begin with, try connecting it into another USB port, since the original port may be bad. Try Steps 4 and 5 for the keyboard as well. Take it to a computer doctor, or to the technical department at the store where you purchased it. If none of the above work, you have a bigger problem on your hands. Your computer may be in the initial stages of crashing.

One of my usb ports won't work properly. If you plug something to it for longer than half an hour the usb port stops recognizing the device you plugged. I have an hp dv7 4190us laptop.


Start with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for your devices and reinstalling them. if That didn't work! Next try System Restore thinking that maybe you have installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn't work!

go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restart the computer, reinstall the USB drivers,

You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an "Unknown Devic

last fix for the problem? Well, apparently it's a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall drivers, or anything of that sort.

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.

First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.

0701 usb over current on hc/port error


I had the same problem on a toshiba satellite u400.
Usb over current on port ... blabla..
Please press F1 to resume or F12 to install.
F1 just ended up in a screen asking to press F2 or F12 which did nothing.
F12 did nothing.

Rebooting the pc ended in a black screen with a flickering HD symbol.

To be able to boot again on the BIOS I had to remove the battery and disconnect the plug.
Once It restarted booting on the error USB over current.

Si I took a USB mouse and tried to boot with the mouse plugged in on port , then another ... at the third port the PC booted normally with no error :)

Don't have any idea why it became faulty but it's now solved for me.

Toshiba satellite pro u400 usb ports not working. Where can I find the drivers?


I would not start with new drivers. Try uninstalling the USB ports in the hard ware settings, then have the computer scan for new hardware, which should make it automatically find and reinstall the drivers for the device. Usually it will fix the problem if that is the extent of it. If that doesn't work, then get the drivers.

Is there another port? Thinkpad T22 Notebook


There are effectively 2 ports on the USB controller chip, Though that particular model only is connected to one port.
If you need additional ports, you can get a small 4 port USB hub. Or get a PC Card with extra ports. Hub is less expensive.

LG USB Serial Port


Have you tried using the USB port in non-enhanced mode?

Go to the Device Manager under Hardware in My Computer properties, scroll down to USB, and disable the "Enhanced USB", your mouse and keyboard will stop functioning for a minute; but will regain function.

Try plugging it now, it should work.

Hope That Helps!

Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504 3 USB Ports not functioning


I don't think a wire is the problem as they are soldered to mobo. It is more than likely a power problem. If you go to the hardware tab in device manager and go down to usb root hub>right click and properties then look at the power tab and you will see a 500MA allowance on usage. You can easily go above these if you are using them, so check that they are all active. Also go to control panel>admin tools>services and look down list for 'plug n play' and make sure it is set at automatic and 'universal plug and play' is set at manual
