    it must be an hardware problem then, so you can do it as much as you want it won't solve the problem...

    is your pc still under warranty ?

    i don't know... maybe it's not a big problem, but personnaly i wouldn't take the risk to play with my laptop...

    btw, if yours is like mine, you must have a USB at the right, and others at the back of your laptop right ? all USB don't work ?


    arf, i just reread your first post : when you plug your USB device it says it can't recognize it ?? that means he "sees" there is something so that's not that bad...
    maybe it is your device that is half dead, try with another one which you are sure works..

    Maybe UPnP has been disabled, so it sees what you plugged in but it can't read it. Just a guess.

    I suggest UPnP to be disabled anyway due to vulnerabilities.

    umm... uPnP... doesn't that apply to USB last I knew. It's for networking devices. Should only have to worry about uPnP if your using firewire devices... at least I think. Correct me if I'm wrong. :S

    I guess what I'd do is got to Toshiba's website, look up the downloads of the model Toshiba you have, and download all the device drivers you can. The windows one's aren't always the best. Also look and see if your BIOS is up to date... uhh.. any firmware I guess. Pay attention to the USB and Chipset drivers especially when you do this... otherwise maybe it got fried.

    I assume you're re-imaging your hard drive using the system recovery discs that came with the computer. That already installs all the Toshiba drivers, so USB should work immediately (the drivers may not be latest versions, but it should be good enough for testing purposes). If it doesn't work, then the problem is probably not the software. Still, you should update all your drivers and Windows.

    On to firmware: Check that your BIOS is up to date. Then go into the BIOS setup and select the option to load all setup defaults (the Satellites I've seen enable USB by default). Try USB again.

    On to hardware: If you're connecting with a USB hub or extension cable, try without--this is a very common cause of USB problems, especially for USB2 hi-speed. Try other USB devices too, but only connect one at a time while testing. If you have a USB hub that plugs into the wall for power try that.
