Satellite M60-132 - USB stops working until you restart

My problem looks like this:

All USB ports die after a few minutes (time may vary, but is shortened recently) after the start. They give no error - the USB mouse stops responding, the USB drive gives stops giving "delayed write failure" or sth like that. They are all visible and OK in device (Windows XP) Manager, no problem not being reported here. They have just stop working. I tried to reinstall Windows. It is not dependent on the OS actually. For example, I can boot from a live CD of SuSe Linux and ports will also die after a few minutes - they do on any OS tested.

Now, I have discovered (GOOGLE usb ports stops working until the reboot) that several Satellite M60 users report this problem with their old cell phones. Exactly the same thing - ports die after a certain time of start and remain that way until you restart. In one case the user writes that he bought a cardbus PCMCIA USB controller and the problem continues - the ports of the controller when dying as well as embedded.

My idea is to try even when the PCMCIA - maybe it will work in my case (another chip etc - you have never know). And anothr one must try to connect a USB hub to the Firewire port available. There are USB to Firewire Converter cards - could work like that?

Anyone know any solution to my problem or have an opinion on my ideas? I am looking to buy a new laptop, which I can't really afford right now...


To be honest I've ever read on these problems on the Satellite M60, but it can happen from time to time, because it of also a fairly old laptop.

My friend also uses a PCMCIA card that has USB ports on his old notebook. He is quite satisfied with this solution because it don t need to each time the USB ports. Just sometimes if he's copying files on USB.
These cards are cheap, you can get it for a few s Euro and you can buy this card where you want, for example

I never heard firewire to USB ports, which is new to me and I n t have experience with this.

Welcome them

  • iOS 10 video playback stops working until you restart

    I have an iPad Mini retina, and since the upgrade to iOS 10.0.01, a short period of use causes videos to stop working.

    Videos in Safari, Chrome, YouTube etc. appear in the cache (saturated with progress on the top bar), but no response to play. The first image of a video appears, but only in the form of static image. I am able to change the static image displayed by rubbing them at any point in the video, but playback will not occur.

    The only thing that allows video playback is again restart the device (apps force closing, locking and unlocking etc. doesn't help).

    Hello, Sunkai!

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple. I understand from your post that you're having trouble playing videos on your iPad mini; the video will start but will be stuck as a single image, as if the buffering and never take back (at least until you restart). I mainly use my iPad for watching videos, so I know it's important that they play in fact; I'm happy to help you!

    I have some troubleshooting I can offer to you. Before you begin, create a backup of your iPad using iCloud or iTunes, following the instructions here: How to back up your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch

    Once you have your backup, try the following steps, in order. A video test after each step and will stop when the problem is resolved.

    1. Make sure your iOS software is up-to-date. In the last week, iOS 10.0.2 came out. Use the following article to get help update: update the iOS on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch software
    2. If this happens on a Wi - Fi connection, try restarting the network you are using from the router or the modem (if possible). If it is a private (for example, your home network) WiFi network, try to remove all the devices on the network, then by simply adding your iPad in return.
    3. Try a different network.
    4. Reset the network settings on your iPad under settings > general > reset > reset network settings. This will affect all personal data (like your photos, contacts, calendar of events, etc.) but it will remove saved passwords, and Wi - Fi networks one previously used settings APN or VPN and all paired Bluetooth device.
    5. Restore your iPad settings, following the steps described here: use iTunes on your Mac or PC to restore the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to factory settings

      Once the restore is complete, configure the iPad as a new device (i.e. without using the backup that you created earlier, at least temporarily). You can sign in iCloud, iTunes and App Store, iMessage and FaceTime with your Apple ID test then a video.

      If the problem is resolved, you can restore your backup by the information here: restore your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch from a backup

    Have a great day!

  • Windows 7 problems with gel applications, programs stop working until you restart

    Windows 7 is a stupid IDEA! . Since then, I have installed windows 7 64-bit on my 64-bit machine. I had problems. Programs to decide that they will not open until I restart. IE and Firefox both freeze when all Web sites are trying to load a video. Also other programs will just stop working and turn off while they don't reopen until I restart again. I installed 7 as an upgrade not a clean install, I'm not sure how to go about backup up files for that. I'm also extremely ready to roll back to Vista, I have not had ANY problems with him. I am also about to throw my laptop through a wall with windows 7 and microsoft. Thank you for another piece of trash! (and headaches). With all that money, you would think they can actually DO SOMETHING RIGHT!. I have now lost $120 on garbage, might as well use windows 7 CD as a Brawler of ice this winter.

    PS everyone has ideas?


    Rants are part of the dealing with technology. As long as they are against the technical and personal equipment no technical, I think we've all been there. Ironically, two days after my message praising Win7, I had a spontaneous reboot that seems to be associated with a known issue with the sensitivity of kernel-power. I was able to reproduce twice, so I think I have a work around until the bug is addressed.

    OK, back on topic. If you have a version to the retail/TMC, you should be able to perform a clean installation with the option to format the drive; then, the fun of reloading everything from scratch and to restore from a backup. I'm not promoting a particular site, but this one

    There are also other tools available to start from a CD or a DVD and then format the drive in NTFS, reinstall it from scratch. But you must have a DVD very convenient for loading eligible upgrade then Win 7.

    Good luck!

  • Range Dell EqualLogic has stopped working when you restart the failure

    During and after an interruption of scheduled maintenance work, ESXi cannot mount on our Dell EqualLogic Array data warehouses and I have no idea why.

    We lack ESXi 5.0.  Shut down us throughout the weekend, replaced the network cables and when we returned to our ESXi hosts could not see the Bay EqualLogic iSCSI, but you could see several other berries on the same storage system iSCSI.  Digging into logs, I see the ESXi host making the CHAP authentication to the EqualLogic Bay, and the said table it connects successfully, then it loses connection about 10 seconds later.  10 seconds more ESXi tent reconnection to the EqualLogic and the same thing is happening again.

    I see several newspapers in ESXi hostd.log indicating this table goes ONLINE and off LINE and another line indicating "sense data Possible" leading me to .  I feel really disabled at the moment because it's the Bay of storage accommodation our vCenter Server, which puts us in trouble right now.

    Also, if I try to "Add Storage", ESXi sees EqualLogic stores exist (watch a sufficient volume, size etc.).  However, as I'm trying to add them (via vSphere Client), step 1 takes a lot of time to finish, step 2 indicates the "disks are empty" (which I don't believe), then after an another long this timeout a popup error.

    Are there commands or utilities that are good for the diagnosis of iSCSI specifically?

    I can post more specific journal details if it is useful.

    PS - The new network cables are ok in communication with other storage targets, and it has not replaced the EqualLogic cables.

    Fixed; the MTU setting on my storage switch was mowing part of storage traffic.  Here are the troubleshooting steps that I went through, maybe it'll help someone else.  The solution didn't exactly have anything specific to do with ESXi or EqualLogic.  Basic troubleshooting and digging.

    Newspapers/events storage array inspection revealed he saw and accepted the ESXi host connection appempts.  I saw messages to the effect of:

    -Connection of ESXi iqn blah blah blah established; Successful CHAP authentication.

    -10 seconds later: Connection reset / abandoned by peers.

    -5 seconds later: ESXi connection successfully established...

    (rinse and repeat several times)

    Inspection of the file hostd.log ESXi showed several messages of 'connection reset by peer '.  The storage array and ESXi have been pointing to the other... so the switch is the only thing in the middle.

    Troubleshooting steps now:

    -using the vmkping ping on the table of the ESXi - success: vmkping

    -using the vmkping ping on the table of the ESXi with a size of 9000 (jumbo frame size): NO RESPONSE! : (vmkping) s 9000<-- this="" is="" where="" the="" money="" was="" for="" finding="" the="">

    MTU has been set at around 9000.  It turns out that the switch should be set a little higher (taking into account headers of packets? who knew)

    So this Setup ran for more than a year of intact working and just stopped when we took everything downstairs and brought it up.

  • Satellite L850 - webcam suddenly stopped working

    The web cam on my Satellite L850 has suddenly stopped working.

    It does not appear in Device Manager;
    I downloaded the latest driver on the Toshiba site;
    I checked the BIOS and the web cam is turned on;
    Always when I open the web cam application I get the following message:

    "webcam initialization failed Please restart request and camera control.

    I scoured the advice forum and short of a return to the top and reboot disk HARD, I find no reasonable answer. I can't back up as I am away from home is out of the question. I need web conference call cam / call my family to the United Kingdom back.

    Tired of going round in circles and getting nowhere.

    Any suggestions?

    Post edited by: mrclean

    Even if you have not changed the settings in the BIOS, you must Access the BIOS to make sure that the webcam is turned on it!

    I also recommend the suite of this workaround:
    Uninstall the webcam software
    Uninstall the VAP
    Uninstall all software needed the webcam (Skype, etc...)
    Now, restart and install CCLeaner (cleaning of freeware software)
    Reboot once more.
    Run CCleaner and clean the system and the registry.
    Now follow with installation of VAP
    Install the webcam software
    Test webcam.

    Good luck

  • Keyboard stops working after you press caps lock.

    On a compaq laptop presario CQ60-300SO the keyboard stops working after you press the caps lock button. The keyboard does not work once the computer starts, but after going in under the keyboard properties control panel and press the 'OK' button, this will work. Buy keyboard works when the computer RECORDS, so I can't get to BIOS. The keyboard work until windows starts and I activate it via the properties of the keyboard by opening the window and press OK immediately. I tried updating the driver but I only find that the keyboard already has the most recent drivers. I tried to restore the drivers and that does not work either. I also disabled start all programs and services to see if it was a problem caused by a program or service and still no luck. It's a very strange problem. I noticed that the keyboard IRQ ranges are both 64-64 and 60-60, which i thought was weird but that's maybe normal. Any advice will be appreciated.
