USB Ports Not Working

I have a Toshiba Satelitte A-135 S2276 Laptop, recently I had to have it sent back to Toshiba because of a automatic power on password that it set itself.  Now my USB ports are not working.  No matter what I plug in them they will not recognize it.  None of them are working.  Can you please help?

    A135-S2386 USB ports do not recognize devices. Computer worked fine until a power on password appeared. Best Buy sent computer to service center. They reset the password and updated the bios to V1.20. When I got computer back, USB ports not working. I updated it to V1.40. Still have problem.

Check your CMOS settings to ensure that your USB ports are enabled.

Usb ports not working

If all the USB ports are not working, this indicates that the USB controller circuitry on the motherboard has gone faulty. If you can however get one port working, you would be able to use an expansion card with usb ports. To rectify the USB controller problem, you would need to have the laptop checked by a technician to trace where the fault lies.

Toshiba satelitte a135 can the usb be replaced?

The USB ports are part of the motherboard, and you would have to replace the whole thing, which can get expensive.

They do sell a USB card that wil plug into your PCMCIA card slot , on your laptop that would get you some new, working ports.

I have a toshiba satellite A-135 laptop that will not recognize anything plugged into the usb ports

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

I have Toashiba laptop Satellite A135-S2276. The laptop doesn?t recognize my USB flash drive. Apparently the device was detected by Windows because as soon as I plugged it in, a balloon pooped up and it...

Check it on another computer. if it still doesnt work then your backup is gone. if it does work maybe you should take it in. also try other accessories in that same port. if other stuff doesnt work then you'll probably need to fix the port. also check the drive on any USB ports in the back of you pc.
