Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook
I did a hot undock, and after redocking, my USB ports aren't working. Nothing I plug into them will work. I've shut the machine down and powered back up with the docking station power button.
Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.
Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.
Hope this helps!
