    There is everything wrong with my laptop. From BIOS password to freezing systems and now usb ports not working, not even one. It looks like there is something really wrong with these models of toshiba laptops( A135 "Series"). Toshiba should tell us the truth... I looking through my phone book for my LAWYER's number.......

    THAT ONE TINY FAN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CASE IZ NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP THE DAMN THING COOL........................................................................................................................

    to make the long debate short....
    the usb root hub inside is very fragile and so cheap...
    when a motherboard reaches the temp. limit.... every
    program will freeze.... from there.... it spreads outward
    and burns out connected cards, usb root hubs, etc. heat
    is the reason for hardware failure......a very poor design from toshiba
    ( I am a game tech. at dave n busters.... most of our games are ran by custom computers running windows!)


You can get a USB card with cable and that should solve the problem. Google part # LS-3391P and it should come up or look on Ebay as I did for an A135 USB card. I got mine for around $11 after shipping.

I have the same problem with my Toshiba A135-S2286. I installed a PCMCIA-USB card; but it did not solve the problem. I downgraded the OS to Windows XP Pro, unfortunately it can NOT solve the problem. I installed a PCMCIA-USB card; still have a problem. The Win XP recognized the USB device (a USB drive; I can see the contents of the drive); installed the proper drivers, unfortunately the laptop "hang" after I accessed the USB device. In my opinion, Windows Vista works better than the XP on this laptop because it does not make the laptop frozen.

Well I had the same problem, then a little while later my motherboard went dead, i had to send it back to Toshiba and they replaced it for free.. It could be that *********** board is dieing, i would call Toshiba if your still under warranty and have them replace it, it takes a total of 10 days usually you'll have it home in about a week in my case anyways..

If is just a USB port, then it could be a driver problem, or that USB hub is turn off, or is a fried/bad USB port. Try another USB device on that port too.

Try moving the arc mouse USB dongle to another USB port on your Toshiba Satellite L650. If the mouse works on the other port, then the first port is the problem. Use Control Panel's Device Manager to further diagnose the port problem.

USB ports not working. Any ideas?

In that case ,
Click on start and run
Type devmgmt.msc

Then uninstall all devices under universal serial bus controller.

Then need to click on any option in the list and scan for h/w changes.

This will install all devices back and your system will be able to recognize all devices now.

Hope this help.

Turn off computer and try connecting an older mouse to the mouse port. If it works:

Right click Computer>click properties>click hardware>click Device Manager> click USB adapters. Then check to see if some of them are marked. Also you can click on each one to see if each is OK. Make sure that USB is enabled in the BIOS.
