Satellite L645D-S4030 second USB port problem

Hi, I'm having trouble with the second USB port that's connected with the VGA port on my Satellite. I try to use my external hard drive, flash drive, and wireless mouse receiver on this port, but I've noticed that when the external hard drive is plugged in the light flashes on for only a second or two and the port itself never recognizes anything plugged in.
Can anyone help me figure this out? I've looked everywhere for a topic covering this problem and have turned up nothing

I am attempting to resolve a similar problem on a friend's L655.  Except that no USB device connected to any of the USB ports are recognized.  I do have an unknown device in Device Manager in the USB Controllers section that I have been unable to resolve.
You may just need the driver installed.  Have you tried that?.

  • Satellite Pro L10-103 - USB ports not working

    Hi, my Satellite Pro L10-103 USB Ports are not working. I've tried various things and lastly my advisor scrubbed my computer clean of all programmes and operating system. After reloading from the set up disk and having lost my some expensive programmes I am no further forward. Still not working.
    Does anyone know if this means it is a mechanical problem with the computer? (I'm using Windows XP). Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try please just to install chipset driver .

  • My second USB port on MBP 2011

    I just recently bought a winter 2011 MBP 2.3 quad i7 and on initial use my second usb port did not recognize my devices (iphone, mouse, drivers). I restarted it and it worked... temporarily. It just crapped out again and I once again restarted it and it worked. This happened 3 times already. I'm curious has this happened to anyone else? is this a hardware malfunction or an update to solve this? Can anyone relate or just tell me to take my faulty computer back. Thanks.

    That is a bad sign, and it is indicative of logic board issues.
    I would take it to the Apple Store right away.

  • USB port problem on Mid 2011 iMac (27")?

    I have a Mid 2011 27" iMac running Lion. The USB ports seem to be resetting so that my external TimeMachinne drive disappears. I get the "disk not properly ejected" errors, but no other indicators of a problem. I tried a different usb port, same result. This doesn't seem to affect my wired keyboard, or my iPod/iPad connections (when in use).

    Please do a SMC Reset. 
    Shut down the computer. 
    Unplug the computer's power cord. 
    Wait fifteen seconds. 
    Attach the computer's power cord. 
    Wait five seconds, then press the power button to turn on the computer.

  • Mac Pro USB port problem

    The front USB ports on my 2010 Mac Pro aren't working. Every time I boot the Mac, I get a message window - twice - saying they were drawing too much power, and have been switched off, even though they're empty.
    I've tried resetting the PRAM, powering off and unplugging everything and removing the battery from the logic board. Nothing has worked. The two front-facing FireWire ports are working, but the USB ports just won't come alive. Does anyone have any further ideas?

    I would run the Apple Hardware Test:
    Checking for a Hardware Problem
    If you suspect a hardware problem, use the Apple Hardware Test application to help
    determine if there’s a problem with one of the Mac Pro components.
    To use Apple Hardware Test:
    1. Disconnect all external devices from your Mac Pro, except the display, keyboard,
    and mouse.
    If you have an Ethernet cable connected, disconnect it.
    2. Restart your Mac Pro while holding down the D key.
    3. When the Apple Hardware Test chooser screen appears, select the language you
    want to use.
    4. Press the Return key or click the right arrow button.
    5. When the Apple Hardware Test main screen appears (after about 45 seconds), follow
    the onscreen instructions.
    6. If Apple Hardware Test detects a problem, it displays an error code. Make a note of the
    error code before pursuing support options. If Apple Hardware Test doesn’t detect a
    hardware failure, the problem may be software related.
    You may also consider replacing the front panel board.

  • Satellite C50-B-14D - USB ports not working

    I have a Satellite C50-B-14D and have had it from new for about 4 months.
    I didn't realise at the time of purchase (online) that it has no optical drive so I have bought an external one.
    Whilst attempting to plug it in I discovered that nothing happened in the 2 ports on the right hand side (2.0 and 3.0) so decided to try the left hand 2.0 port.
    It does detect the device but then undetects it within 10 seconds, it continues to do this every few seconds making it impossible for me to access my work on CD!!!
    I have contacted the people I purchased it from but they say it is a Toshiba issue?
    Can anyone help fix it as I don't want to send it for repair as I can't be without it for more that 2 days.

    But I have tried various items connected via the usb ports and nothing works.
    If a device like my dvd/cd writer is specifically a usb device why would it not have enough power to work, even if it was plugged into the usb 3.0 port? It works perfectly well on my old laptop.
    It was only bought in October so is still under warranty and guarantee but I really can't be without it so am reluctant to send it anywhere for repair.
    I was hoping there might be a way of uninstalling and reinstalling the usb ports?

  • USB port problem: 2006 iMac

    I have one of the first-gen Intel iMacs from early 2006. The USB ports seem to stop working at least once or twice a day. I'll notice that the keyboard and/or the mouse isn't responsive (sometimes it's one and not the other, sometimes it's both). If I unplug the keyboard from the USB port and plug it back in, it will start working again, but I can only do that once or twice before that trick doesn't work either. If the mouse remains unresponsive, I need to hold down the power button and restart the computer. After it reboots, everything is fine again.
    I have a USB hub plugged into the other port, and switching the hub and keyboard jacks doesn't seem to make a difference. I have a pair of game controllers plugged into the hub, along with an iDevice cord (I don't typically leave my iPhone or iPod connected to it all the time) and the cord for recharging my external iDevice battery. If I switch the keyboard and hub plugs, the lights on the hub, which were on, will go off when switched to the other port, and the keyboard/mouse still won't work.
    The first time this happened, I tried another keyboard/mouse combo that I knew worked, but no dice.
    Oddly, the power and charging lights on the external iDevice battery light up, even though the hub port it's connected to remains dark. It's a four-port hub, and each has a blue light that goes on when power is going through it.
    I ran Apple Hardware Test, the long version, but it didn't find anything wrong with the computer.
    Wondering what else I can test. Could the USB ports be going bad?
    It just occurred to me that this could be connected to my FireWire drives, which sometimes drop off the Finder. If I unplug them and then plug them back in, however, they come back.
    I have one drive plugged into a FireWire port and a pair of daisychained drives plugged into the other one. The daisychained drives are self-powered, while the other drive plugs into the wall.
    Are the USB and FireWire ports on the same board? I assume they are. Am I overloading that board? I'm wondering if I am, given everything I have connected. When the keyboard and mouse stop working, though, the hard drives remain in the Finder.
    Any hints are appreciated. Thanks!

    I'd recommend doing a SMC reset to see if that helps solve the problem. If you have never done one then:
    • Shut down the computer.
    • Unplug the computer's power cord _and all peripherals_.
    • Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    • Release the power button.
    • Attach the computers power cable.
    • Press the power button to turn on the computer.
    • Shut down the computer.
    • Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    • Turn on the computer.
    • Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    • Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    • Release the keys.
    If that doesn't solve it trying starting in Safe Mode and see if that works.

  • Intermittent USB port problems

    I have a problem with my works Mac Pro - the USB ports on the back intermittently die, then come back!
    Some problems are: An external HD connected via USB will be disconnected (the Device Removal error dialogue is displayed) then a few seconds later will remount; I will try to exit my screensaver and find that the keyboard and tablet are not working (neither the Caps Lock key light not the tablet light are illuminated), however these never come back.
    I normally have to switch USB ports in the back to get a 'good' one, but it will happen once or twice a week.
    I am running 10.4.10 which was a combo install with no problems, I have all drivers up-to-date and regularly run Onyx the clean everything up. Disk Utility says everything's OK and can't find evidence of a system error.
    The Mac is a 2x2Ghz Dual Core Intel Xeon with 2Gb RAM. I can post the USB info from System Profiler if anyone has any clues as to what is going on.
    Thanks, Lee.

    Hi Thomas
    I use the external HD at work and at home on my mini, but this never happens at home. The drive is mains powered. I ran TechTool on it a few weeks ago and the drive is sound, so I think the drive is ok.
    Just this morning after hooking up the drive it was unmounted (just like pulling the USB cable out without ejecting) then mounted a few seconds later - the keyboard and tablet were unaffected.
    The drive and keyboard & tablet problem do not occur at the same time, but the ports they use have been a problem at one time or another.
    This has been happening since 10.4.8, through 10.4.9 and now in 10.4.10, but I thought I read somwhere on the Apple boards about USB port issues and now searching I can't find anything about it.
    I tried resetting the PMU or SMC yesterday (inserting power supply plug while holding in the power button) and never had this happen all day... until this morning!

  • USB ports problem

    Hi all,
    I have got a brand new laptop Pavilion dv6-2060ea and have noticed problems with the usb ports. I generally use linux as a primary OS but I have noticed the same problem on Windows 7 as well. The laptop sometimes doesn't recognize usb devices as a mouse or an external harddrive, it means when I turn on the laptop boot on an OS, the mouse doesn't work and I have to reinsert it to get it work. It happens 2 or 3 times from 5 boots so it's quite often I would say. The same problem is with the external hdd, have to reinsert it and then it's all right. I have noticed that there has been a new BIOS released and this should fix some problems with usb ports but I already have upgraded to that BIOS(F.13A) and problems persist. I also miss more options in the BIOS about the CPU settings because the laptop has Core i7 and there is no any option to configure the CPU.
    Be patient with my English, please. Cheers, Pepe

    hello mate,
    Try to check in the BIOS if the udb always on is enabled and in the boot order if the usb is not in first otherwise u could have problems to boot with something plug in...

  • HP 6730s - Boot & USB ports problems

    I'm having some problems with my HP6730s.
    1. First problem I noticed is that if I keep it running for a long period of time, 2 UBS ports (right side, near DVD drive) stop working and Windows keeps informing me about malfunctioning devices if I have any device connected to those ports. Since I usually have  a wireless receiver for my Logitech connected to one of those ports, I can't get rid of the error not even if I disconnect it. The only thing that works is to turn off the laptop and remove the power cable for 30-60 minutes. This makes me think those USB ports don't get enough power.
    2. I seem to be having problems when I'm trying to boot up using a Linux CD/DVD/USB. I insert the media I wan't to boot up from and I can see the DVD Drive/USB led flickering and then it stops. The Caps led starts flickering and that's it. I have to force shut down so that I can boot up again. At first I thought that it's the media I'm trying to boot up from or the BIOS settings but then I noticed that sometimes it boots up and sometimes it doesn't. I manage to boot up Ubuntu CD after 10 tryouts. openSUSE(11.xx)(the distro I need & use) is very problematic. LiveCDs won't boot up and install DVDs will simply hang on boot. If by any chance I manage to boot it up it pops out a error message and it forces me into failsafe boot/install. I also managed to install openSUSE once but it failed to auto configure videocard so I got stuck in text mode. Trying to manually install ATI drivers failed because it was unable to detect the video card. Same thing happened in Windows when I tried to upgrade the driver using the one on AMD website.
    I bought the laptop in January 2009 and in December 2010 I replaced the battery. 
    I'm now running Windows 7 Professionas SP1 x64 up to date  Also, HP Tools is up to date and I used to test the laptop for hardware issues and nothing was found. I also tested the video card and everything seamd to be fine.

    I found out what's causing this but not how to fix it. I can only prevent it.
    It seams that if you keep the device plugged in too much, those ports won't get enough power.
    The best way to prevent this is to remove the battery when you keep the device plugged in and to also remove it when you turn it off.
    I noticed this won't happen if I keep the device plugged in and ON for a long period of time but only if I keep it plugged in when turned off and if I also keep the battery inside.
    But this will only fix the USB problem, not the Linux boot one.
    What is you problem, exactly? Also, have you found a solution? 

  • HP DV6c63sl USB ports problem, (Unknown Device)..

    I have a problem with my USB ports, when I connect my phone with it's USB cable, it's shown as "Unknow Device" and that's just in my laptop.. My other laptop and Desktop PC can detect it without any problem or drivers, and I have the same exact OS ( Windows 7 x64 Ultimate ) on my 3 PCs.
    I have the same problem with a Game Controller (PowerPad), it works on all the PCs I've tried it on except my HP DV6c63sl. There's just my USB Mouse that works fine, and almost all other USB devices that I've tried are detected as "Unknow Device", And I've got also a "SM Bus Controller" shown in the "Device Manager window" -when I plug in my USB Game Controller- as undetected, I don't know what it is..
    Here's some screens that I think they would help to identify my problem :
    & Thank you very much for your help !
    I really wants my Laptop to detect all the USB devices like my others PCs ( I'm talking about USB mouses, keyboards, game pads, phones with USB cables.. that get detected automatically without installing any drivers )

    Hello Huntrz,
    I understand you are having issues with your Windows 7 not recognising a USB device when it is plugged in. I stumbled across a thread on titled USB Device Not Recognized on Windows 7 - USB mouse where they discuss a solution that resolved their issue. Now I know your mouse works, but the point is that a USB device should automatically install that is the whole purpose or USB on a computer devices are to be plug and play. Anyways, what they discuss is that what is called a Hard Reset resolved their issue. I am providing you with an HP Support document: Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset that will walk you through the steps to performing a Hard Reset on your Notebook.
    Please re-post with the results as I am curious as well. Thank you for posting this issue on the HP Forums. Have a great day!
    Please click the "Thumbs Up" on the bottom right of this post to say thank you if you appreciate the support I provide!

  • Bluetooth Windows 7 USB port problem

    I am using a class 1 bluetooth dongle (unkown manufacturer) with the toshiba bluetooth stack V 8.00.03 Premium, and a bluetooth headset. The specs for the dongle are : Bluetooth V1.2, USB compatible with V1.2/2.0
    I have a strange problem when changing the USB the dongle is plugged into. If I change the dongle to another USB port, searching for devices fails. I have tried uninstalling the stack, and of course deleting the device from the bluetooth manager window.
    Also, strangely , when I plug the dongle into a USB extension on the same port, it doesnt work either. When I put the dongle back into the same USB port it works fine as usual.
    I want to change the USB port so that I can get better reception , as its plugged in at the back at the moment. Also, I want to use the usb extension for the same reason, to bring it out above the desk. Weirdly though,as I say, it doesnt work with the extension (just a regular cable with USB male on one end and female on the other to plug the dongle into.
    Is this something to do with voltage drop down a cable? And regarding the changing of the usb ports is this something to do with the bluetooth ports being installed on that USB port only? I dont know exactly how bluetooth ports work so, how they get installed etc.
    Thanks very much for any help.

    Few questions at the beginning:
    Do you use Toshiba notebook?
    I ask this because, as far as I know, Toshiba supports BT stack on Toshiba notebooks but if you get it as part of package of some other manufacturer they are responsible for support and functionality.
    Until now Ive always used Toshiba notebooks and there is no problem with BT device so I cannot say much about your problem but what you can try is to remove preinstalled software, clean u the registry and after notebook/PC restart install Toshiba BT stack but put BT dongle in the port that you want to use now.

  • 945P internal USB port problem

    Power exceeded on USB Port 945P motherboard - NO DEVICES CONNECTED
    Part Number: MSI 945P Platinum Socket 775
    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 640, 3.2 GHz
    Memory: Corsair 512MBx2 PC4300 DDR2 533MHz
    Operating System: XP Pro
    On the motherboard, I have added more external USB port (case mounted), these ports are connected to the mobo on the connector JUSB2.
    Now, Windows gives an error stating that the power has been exceeded and must reset or close the port.
    There is no device connected to these USB ports, only the wires that lead from JUSB2 connector to the case mounted USB ports.
    Did any of you had the same problem?? Thanks.

    Have you checked to see if the USB, that is mounted to the Front of the case has any Shorts?
    You might also want to remove the USB that is plugged into the Header on the MOBO.
    One more thing you might have hooked up the USB header wrong.
