Yes, they may work as follows:
Do the first item, if still doesn't work, do the second also...
1. Start your computer into the BIOS setup.
Find the "built-in" devices screen and "enable" all of the USB ports. If there is a "Legacy support" option, enable that too.
2. Go to the Device Manager to enable them:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
[Device Manager]
On the right window at the bottom of the list,
select + USB Serial Bus controllers
Find the one with the yellow marking and right-click and "disable / enable" it.
or UNinstall it (Windows will "find" it again automatically.

I got a Toshiba laptop satellite C655-05049 and accidentally the headphone port or jack broke , so I'd like to know what my options are to solve this problem , just to get it back new , should I buy the...


They come with 1-Year parts and labor warranty normally, so if you bought it less than a year ago, they might fix it for you! If you got it at Best Buy (for example) recently, take it in and ask.
If the headphone jack is attached to the motherboard then the only solution is to re-solder the jack (or a new jack) to the motherboard, if it has been detached. (I have tripped over a headphone cable once or twice and done this)
Hiring a tech to solder can be expensive and time consuming and it MIGHT be less expensive to replace the motherboard. If you are feeling tech-savvy yourself and know how to solder you may try to attach a new jack, since you know you will have to replace the motherboard anyway.
Unfortunately, your laptop does NOT have expansion slots, so the only way to add an another sound card would be USB external, which is very inconvenient for a laptop.
So YES. All things being equal, a new motherboard is your only option... that being said, attempting to fix the old one can only result in the same solution, at worst.
They come with 1-Year parts and labor, so if you bought it less than a year ago, they might fix it for you!

TOSHIBA SATELLITE M45-S165 won't charge Battery. The power connector on the back of this laptop is losse but still powers the Laptop. I bought a new battery and the Battery light does light up on the front...


it could be possible that changing the dc jack at the back may fix the problem however it could be a faulty new battery as ive had a few copies (not original) which would work for a week or so then die or others which wouldnt work at all, i finaly splashed out on a new original battery and it hasnt let me down and i bought it over a year ago.

Hope this helps

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.

Power on password for toshiba satellite m30-107


You can by shorting the CMOS/BIOS battery connector for 30 sec's with a resister pack (2.4 KOhms), but if you don't have any PC repair experience, don't try it!

"You can blow the motherboard if you get it wrong.."

I suggest you take it to a Toshiba repair shop, it will cost about $100 to have them do it for you.

Lost Recovery CD's


You can request the cd's from Toshiba, although they will charge, the pics etc will be lost unless they can be retrieved by the warranty company, although they will also charge for that.
