Don't do it unless you've got ALL the drivers for your new install-and I mean ALL the drivers. If your manufacturer hasn't got them available to download, then you'll end up with a doorstop.

I just bought a Toshiba NB205 net book with built in web cam and ever since I?ve had it the computer says ?one of your USB devices is not working or cannot be recognized?

Is that particular message, is it referring to your web cam? If yes, download the driver from the support website of Toshiba and reinstall it on your computer. Here's the link. I searched it for you. Download the file, save it on your desktop then run it. Another solution is to reformat your hard disc or run system recovery.

Toshiba P30 notebook

You may need to take the hard drive out and find a portable USB hard drive case to put it in ...if it is 3 years old it is probably an IDE drive ...newer ones are SATA drives....then hook it to another computer and and check it can also reformat it in the portable case on another computer then put it back in the laptop and then reinstall windows......if it isn't recognized by the other computer then it probly wrecked the hard drive somehow..
Hope this helps
