Toshiba satellite laptop 1900 - does not accept usb2 card

This laptop is a few years old and came with 2 usb ports and the promise that it would be upgradeable to USB 2 when the standard was finalized.  However, when "Best Buy's" "Geek Squad" tried to install a USB 2 into the card slot, it keeps on dumping (blue screen) and then freezes.

I would appreciate any suggestions, since in all other ways the laptop works well.

I would take it back to them and make them eat it if it doesnt work for you. Remember, the customer is always right.

How to convert USB3 to USB2

The software drivers are different n Windows 8.1, you can either get an update for it, or just use it on the XP. USB2 is irrelevant.

You have just answered your own question, it works fine on a XP machine, but not on Windows 8.1, you need updated drivers to run this on windows 8.1, contact the manufacturer.

Toshiba sattelite 1800 usb2

No. This unit has USB 1.1

USB 2.0 did not come out until about a year or so after this unit was made. You can however use an expansion card in the pc card slot to upgrade it to USB 2.0.

Which usb ports are 2.0 speed on my m55-s3512?

Well, with the usual efficiency of Toshiba, I can't locate the M55 series laptops to lookup, the M50 does seem to be similar though and all the USB ports there are 2.0.
Easiest way? Find a new USB device (memory stick for example) and plug it into each port in turn. Give windows enough time to detect and install it, and if it's a USB1 port, you'll get a message saying "This device can perform faster in a USB2 port".

I have lost access to all the USB ports on my Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024. Most recently - 12/26/09 - I was able to use all ports, althought my 16BB Flash Drive - Staples Relay Model also suddenly stopped...

There are a few toys and devices made in China that deadshort the USB terminals. I hope you have not bought and installed one of these. I had 2 in the shop a year ago with some Dora Explorer usb toy that toasted the usb once installed. If you have bought and installed something about the same time as the usb stopped working you will need to call the company that made the device and demand they replace your motherboard.

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE U405D-S2852 USB PORTS it comes with 3 usb ports but from those 3 only only accepts a new device installed on the laptop, the other 2 only send a error message...

It's possibly a power issue. Some USB devices draw a lot of power but not all ports are capable of providing the power. Generally for things like portable HDs etc use the rear port(s) as they provide more power

How do you replace usb port on toshiba satellite 1905 s303

The USB ports in this system is NOT part of the motherboard, but a separate daughterboard where both USB ports are mounted - a good thing since these ports have proven to be a bit on the flimsy side. Best source for these parts would be eBay. I've seen them for around $10-$15.

USB2 ports on siemens C 1020

The USB Controller is too old and only handles USB 1.1
If you want to upgrade to USB 2.0 you can do what I did for my old gateway. I bought a USB2.0 PCMCIA card. You can pick them up for anywhere from 20 bucks on up, depending on how many ports you want. Best Buy has them so I would imagine any computer retailer would be able to snag one for you.

Hope this helps.
