Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S114 Notebook

2 Answers

USB Ports None of my USB posts recognize any device. All of the ports stopped working at the same time. I've checked the drivers and they are all installed. Using the device manager indicates that the drivers are working properly. I've gone through all of published troubleshooting steps with no success. Any advise?

    I uninstalled all drivers in the USB category and Windows did re-detect all the USB ports, but they still do not work. I also updated all drivers and they still do not work.

    Again, thanks for the feedback. I tried reinstalling windows with no luck. I guess I have to look at the hardware side of things. No warranty.

I would go back to device manager and uninstall all drivers in the USB category. Reboot and Windows will re-detect all the USB ports, this should work. If it was an electronic problem then some ports would work and other wouldn't but not all since there is multiple USB controllers in most computers these days.

    Then your next step is to reinstall Windows using the recovery CDs or DVDs that came with your notebook. If they still don't work after than then they probably are in fact dead and a motherboard replacement would be your only hope. If you are under warranty then don't hesitate to contact Toshiba.

My dell latitude d600 usb ports stopped working how can i get it fixed. thans


If ALL the usb ports have stopped working, this is a problem with the USB controller. The short answer is that you cannot easily repair this. In all probability, the controller, or a circuit trace to it has blown or shorted. You would need to get another motherboard.

If one is still working, then you can get a PCIMCIA card to usb port that will give you 2-4 extra ports, but this will only work if at east one of your existing usb ports is still functioning

Hi. The USB ports on my lenovo y430 seem not to be working, as the computer does not recognize my external harddisks or external dvd writer. Is there any way I can fix this myself?


If you have tried every USB port and you use another USB device to it.. You may check the device manager ryanpajaro20_7.jpg and check if the USB controllers are disabled.. If not, you may click View and then click Scan Hardware Changes.. If still won't work, that is time that you call lenovo and have you laptop replaced defective USB ports..

Its seems your usb driver has corrupted. You are required to reinstall usb 2.0 drivers. If you have your usb driver cd then install it from there or else just search it on google and install.

USB not working


if the usb detects other devices and not your drive,the drive itself may be faulty.If you plug in other devices in the usb and it detects them the usb drive or its connector is most likely bad.If it won't detect any devices the port is bad and drivers won't help.Possibly a motherboard issue.

USB PORTS


does your usb mem stick have any light indicators? if yes , whenever you put you usb stick, does it light? if it lights are USB ports is still ok,  You just have to reformat or partition you USB stick.
(you can also try other devices like usb mouse or any usb devices that lights up when you connect it)

if there are no lights if you plug, or no indication that a power goes to your stick, its possible that your usb your are busted. if this is the case, if your laptop has a PCMIA slot, you can find a pcmia USB card, if you dont have. your only option is replace the  motherboard.

Thinkpad T20 won't recognize usb port


You can get a PCMCIA adapter with 4 USB v.2.0 slots on eBay. It requires power from the USB port on the laptop, but the pigtail connector is included. Works like a charm! Comes from China just like everything else in this country.

USB Ports Not Working


Check Device Manager for bad drivers

Usb ports


You'll want to verify your computer recognizes your usb ports.
In device manager, look to see that you don't have anything with an exclamation mark, question mark, or red X on it. Make sure you have the usb ports listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers. If nothing shows, your usb ports may be dead. Depends on the age of your computer and what might have happened to them.

Device manager- right-click My Computer and go to properties, then select the hardware tab.
