click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap if this solution does not work and you might need one
hope this helps

I have a old Toshiba Portege 7100that i am trying to boot from a usb hardrive. When i start the computer up it says starting.Then 2 seconds later it says insert system drive and press any button to boot....


this model is too old to boot from a usb version1
maybe you can flash the bios to upgrade usb1 to usb version 2
or, load the ubuntu linux operating system using a CD

I have lost access to all the USB ports on my Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024. Most recently - 12/26/09 - I was able to use all ports, althought my 16BB Flash Drive - Staples Relay Model also suddenly stopped...


There are a few toys and devices made in China that deadshort the USB terminals. I hope you have not bought and installed one of these. I had 2 in the shop a year ago with some Dora Explorer usb toy that toasted the usb once installed. If you have bought and installed something about the same time as the usb stopped working you will need to call the company that made the device and demand they replace your motherboard.
