Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
Any device I insert into any of the four USB ports on my laptop results in a bubble from the task tray popping up informing me that the "usb device cannot be recognized". The only thumbdriveI've tried to use freezes the laptop as well.
This is a recent situation. USB devices used to work. I can't recall an incident that'd cause the USB ports' malfunction.
From the laptops first day with me it had XP pro installed (by me) in place of vista basic. Toshiba doesn't provide XP drivers for this laptop model or XP compatible bios updates. I've yet to try vista and play with power settings and drivers.
The cmos doesn't provide an option to disable/enable USB devices/ports.
Removing all unknown USB device drivers (hidden and shown) didn't fix the problem.
Reformatting the computer didn't fix the problem
Updating to the most recent bios didn't fix the problem.
My mouse not working ,,give me massege usb device not recognise

1-Make sure you are using XP SP2. You probably are but just in case....
2-Unplug all USB devices
3-Uninstall any software for the devices you just unplugged
4-Reboot into safe mode and open the device manager. Make sure to choose the show hidden devices option
Note: Follow the order of removal exactly and this MUST be done in safe mode only!
5-Remove any entries for USB peripherals like scanners and printers
6-Remove any entries for HID devices or Combp USB devices
7-Remove all USB root hub entries
8-Remove all USB host controller entries
9-Reboot to normal mode, let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive.
If this didn't work then repeat steps 1-8.
Staying in safe mode, right click in the device manager and scan for hardware changes. Let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive again.
Also when doing any of this try and get a hold of another thumb drive and try it instead of yours. Your thumb drive could be the source of the trouble. We had similar issues we tracked down to a bad batch of Memorex thumb drives.

Is vista sensitive than xp??

ATTN :VERSER any computer that has vista loaded Originally is designed to use a vista operating system only for smooth operation.
as the processer and drivers are designed around vista when people downgrade from vista to xp the chipset and bios are incompatable and wont recognize all of the harware or software drivers on the computer
