T470 top right USB port doesn't work after BIOS v1.42 update when device is plugged in on boot

Q: T470 top right USB port doesn't work after BIOS v1.42 update when device is plugged in on boot

As the title says, top right USB port on my T470 doesn't work after BIOS v1.42 update when device is plugged in on boot. Non of devices power up when plugged into that port. Naturally there's nothing in dmesg. This is not OS-dependent since devices don't power up in BIOS screen as well. The other 2 ports still work as expected. Restarting doesn't help. After some cold boots the ports starts working again. This never happened with previous BIOS versions.

My Auto Run/Auto Play stopped working in Vista Home Premium 32 bit OS, I 've ticked the box Use Autoplay for all media devices in Control Panel / Hardware and Sound/ Autoplay. Also tried other options like I'd used before when it used to work.
Tried Reset all defaults.Nothing seems to fix it.
Sounds like a Registry issue??? But don't know!
Any ideas how to repair/fix this problem please.

A:Auto play / run doesn't work anymore when USB Device is plugged in.

What anti-virus software do you use. If there is a virus on a USB my anti-virus (nod32) won't let auto run start. Try another device before you go into the registry.

Hi all, new to the forum. After browsing a bunch of similar posts with the same issue, I couldn't find one with my situation, and I'm hoping to get some insight before I do anything else. I bought this computer about late April of last year and haven't had any major hardware problems until now. Towards the end of last month I encountered a problem with my battery on my Lenovo T470. It ran out of battery and was in the power saving mode then I plugged it in, it lit up a little bit as usual but then went back to not charging (Windows 10 alert 3% left or whatever the lowest percentage alert was). Didn't think of much, next day, I thought it charged for the night, didn't. Couldn't start it up because it didn't charge, so I had to use an outlet to run the computer, then I get the battery gauge with no charging animation and a Lenovo alert for battery plugged in but not charging. I tried doing those reset techniques advised on other forums (taking battery out, holding power buttons, etc etc). No luck. I read about bad battery life spans and with getting a new one I can at least eliminate it being a battery problem. I went ahead and bought a new battery that came today. Put it in, still computer plugged in, not charging. I checked forums about power management and my settings are not in airplane mode. I tried uninstalling the ACPI compliant control method battery as another technique I saw on the forums, but that led to no success either. Since it is not a battery problem ... Read more

Hi there, would be grateful for any help on a problem that has me completely stumped.

I have an AJP 7321 laptop that was running Windows ME. I've recently upgraded to XP Pro. The upgrade didn't go entirely smoothly until I updated the BIOS (now R1.07 if that helps). Hey presto, XP Pro installs and runs like a dream. Except that since the BIOS update the laptop monitor is not working properly: when I power up I have a blank screen with flashing horizontal or vertical lines (sometimes both together). I've hooked up an external monitor, which is fine,and the laptop monitor 'flashing style' changes according to what I am doing, suggesting that it is receiving information and trying to do something with it.

Device manager says everything is working properly. I've updated the graphics card driver (S3 Twister K). And then I deleted all the programs I didn't need or could easily download again one day in case there were any conflicts. Oh, and ran a full virus check for good measure...

I've scoured the internet, spoken to AJP support and tweaked everything I can think of. I'm assuming that it probably isn't a graphics card problem since it all appears perfectly on the external monitor. Should I be tweaking something in the BIOS or a system folder? Any suggestions??

A:Monitor doesn't work since BIOS update, or is it XP?

I selected my C drive as my priority boot device, but unless I hit "esc" on startup and manually select my hard disk, it doesn't boot to it by default, it boots to my external hard drive. Obviously when it does that, it just shows a blank screen, so I have to power off, power on, press esc, and manually select the C drive every time, even though I've adjusted the settings in the BIOS already.

Anything I could be doing wrong?

I have a new T470 docked in a Lenovo ThinkPad Ultra Dock 90W connected to a Lenovo ThinkVision P27q screen.When I use a Display Port cable between the dock and the screen the "found new device sound" pings every like 5-10 seconds . Only when the computer enters Screen saver mode (no screen saver). Eventhough I have the sound to be relayed to the screen  where I have plugged in Headphones, instead of Laptop Speakers, the foud new device sound goes out through the Laptop speakers for all to hear. This can be VERY annoying to collegues when I go away.  Using a HDMI cable = no problem. This only happens using a DIsplay port mini on the dock to Display Port on the screen.  As the screen is black in this mode I can't see any error messages (Or found new device) on the screen.As soon as I go out of screen saver mode, by touching the mouse/keyboard the sound stops repeating. Any ideas?

I bought my Satellite Z930 in August and installed 2GB extra RAM in it. Worked fine, the Ultrabook detected it and had total 6GB of RAM.
Yesterday I stopped ignoring these Toshiba Tempro messages and installed the suggested BIOS Update to Bios 2.20 (don't know which version it was before). Now I have several problems:

*First one*, my Ultrabook doesn't start anymore with the extra RAM. I press the power button, then the power LED starts blinking: 2 times yellow, 1 time orange in loop. The screen stays black and the CPU fan raises to maximum level..Only when I remove the extra RAM, then it starts.

*Second problem*, without my extra RAM it starts, but sometimes with the CPU fan at maximum level. So i have to restart that it stops.

*Third problem*, Windows only detects 2GB of RAM. I have now no extra RAM istalled, so it should detect 4GB of RAM, like when I bought it. Now there are only 2GB...

So is this what happens when I install suggested updates? -.-
So what can I do now? At least I want my preinstalled 4GB of RAm back. Is there any BIOS downgrade, or something similar to revert the changes?

A:Satellite Z930 - after BIOS Update, Extra RAM doesn't work anymore

OK, solved the problem. I found a BIOS downgrade to 2.1 at this page: http://www.blog-drivers.com/2012/07/toshiba-portege-z930-notebook-drivers.html

I've got a Windows 7 upgrade disc, so I first installed Windows XP and now need to boot from this new disc. Because I'm going from 32-bit XP to 64-bit Windows 7, I have to boot from the disc.

I can press F12 to get into the boot order selection screen; but pressing the arrow keys, escape, or enter has no effect. Once I'm on that screen, I just have to turn off the PC because I can't do anything else.

Both keyboards I've tried have been USB. I actually bought a new keyboard in case my keyboard was the issue, but the stores only had USB keyboards--if USB is the issue, I'll have to wait a few days before I can borrow an old keyboard that uses PS2.

Is there any way to workaround this using the USB keyboard I have?

Hello all, After updating the BIOS to version A16 or A17 doesn't work memory card reader :(
On the aforementioned version of the BIOS, when you want to turn on the computer with a memory card inside the system do not get up! Of course, without a memory card system will get up normally but when you again put the memory card the system still can't see it.
The last working version of BIOS is A15 where you can use a memory card reader.

Hi everyone,

The problem I have is really strange. I updated my BIOS from my computer manufacturer's homepage. After doing so, I had to reboot my pc. However, once my pc rebooted, a similar message as the following appeared: Press F8 to select boot device. If I would not press F8 my pc would not start up at all. Yet, when I pressed F8 it gave me a list of boot devices to select from. I selected the HDD drive, which in the end worked out perfectly, since i could restart my computer without any problems.

So you guys might wonder now why I am posting this here, if there is not a problem. Well, every time I start up my pc it asks me to press F8 and start up my pc from the specific boot device. I have managed to make my pc reboot automatically, without having to press F8 every single time.

However, how can I remove the F8 screen from showing up?

Before I run the BIOS update it never said press F8 to select boot device.
Is there any way to remove this screen or skip it? It is really annoying and delaying my computer start up.
Thank you very much in advance!
regards,
Trock

I have ASUS P8Z77 ?V motherboard and the front USB 3.0 headers are not working when I plug in a USB 3.0 device. When I plugged in my Kingston USB 3.0 Flash Drive into the front USB 3.0 header it didn't work. As in, when I tried to move a file into the flash drive, the drive disappears and it makes that USB unplugged sound. But if I connect it to any back USB 3.0 ports, it works fine.

But, if I plug in my Scandisk USB 2.0 Flash drive into the front USB 3.0 ports, it works without any errors.

This only happens with USB 3.0 devices and it has to be connected to front USB 3.0 ports.
I have installed all the latest drivers and updated my BIOS to the latest one. I have checked if USB 3.0 is enabled in BIOS.

I asked to my friend to help me. He has AMD rig with ASUS M5a99X EVO motherboard, which has a front USB 3.0 header. We installed all AMD drivers for his rig updated everything, the front USB 3.0 ports worked fine. We manage to transfer all the files at full-speed on to the Kingston 3.0 flash drive without any errors, so I know it?s not my PC case?s USB 3.0 cable at fault.


Any help. Please note the front USB 3.0 ports work if I plug in a USB 2.0 device.

A:My front USB 3 port doesn't read USB 3 device, but reads USB 2 device

Hi dino1989,

I checked the motherboard manual and it talks about only 2 USB 3.0 ports; appears that it offers 2 USB 3.0 port connectors at the back panel:


Please take a glance at the motherboard layout. Connectors highlighted (11) are 10-1 pin USB56, USB78 & USB910. These connectors are used for USB 2.0 ports (9 ports) at the rear panel. If the 2 USB ports in front are also connected to there, they may comply with USB 2.0 specification and would support upto 480 Mbps connection speed. (Tried but could not find anything in the manual that gives a clue about the source of the USB ports in the front).
However, you may go to 'Onboard Devices Configuration' and try setting 'USB 3.0 Controller' as [Enabled] in 'BIOS' to see if that gets the USB 3.0 ports functional in the front panel. This 'Enables / Disables' the USB 3.0 controller.

To access 'motherboard BIOS', you may want to refer to this manual: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...5A78L-USB3.pdf

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

A few days ago, a friend of mine rammed his office chair to the side of my USB stick breaking it and additionally caused a physical trauma the USB port it was plugged in.

When I tried connecting my phone to my PC on the same USB port, its storage icon does not appear in My Computer; however my phone is capable of receiving charge. When I plugged into the USB port beside it, the device is recognized and appears on My Computer.

Is there any way to make the USB port that received physical trauma recognize device again? Or is that port doomed?

A:A USB2.0 Port Doesn't Recognize Devices Plugged In Anymore

From your description of what happened, it's very likely the USB port is damaged. There are a number if connectors in the port & some are probably forced out of line. If the USB port is attached directly to the motherboard replacement would be a specialists job. Your picture seems to indicate it is probably on the front panel of the case. You would need to open the case & have a look & see if the USB port assembly can be replaced & if it can you would then have to find one that will fit the case.

In the meantime it would be best not to use it for anything at all.

A:Portege A100 PPA10A - Will BIOS update allow to boot from a USB device

Hi

Portege A100 seems to be developed only for Australian market.
As you said there is a Portege A100 PPA10A-0002L model number listed on the Toshiba Australian page but the Portege A100 PPA10A-0002LP belongs to the same series which is PPA10A.
So in my opinion the BIOS should work too.

Anyway, I doubt that the BIOS update will add any further booting options.

Usually the BIOS support the booting from CD/DVD drive, HDD, LAN and USB FDD.
It should be possible to boot from a bootable diskette using an USB FDD drive.
I doubt you would be able to boot from USB ODD since this Portege A100 supports an internal CD/DVD drive.

I tried uninstalling drivers with driver sweep and through device manager. BIOS happen to be alright and also I checked if it's plugged in correctly several times and it is. I really don't know what caused this or when.

My computer completely locked up while playing a game and I had to do a hard reboot. Now I continuously get the error:

"Reboot and select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

The only thing I can manage to pull up is the CMOS Setup Utility. Looking through the menu I found the Boot sequence menu; however, the only device listed is cd/dvd and I read that hard drive should be listed.

Any ideas on a possible problem?

I am thinking that my hard drive might be shot because I am almost positive it is not due to loose cables. On the other hand I was thinking that it could possibly be due to a virus because I had found a Trojan earlier with my virus scanner.

Appreciate any feedback I can get.

I contacted Lenovo support today and got NO help in answering my question on this T470 Thinkpad. Is the T470 able to support two external monitors at the same time (one) using the HDMI port, (one) using the USB-c port (connected VIA an HDMI adapter lets say) to two 32" LGMA68HY-P 60HZ ISP LED's ( max res 1920 x 1080) that ARENOT 4K displays!!  Man it was like pulling teeth, upside down, in the dark, getting astraight answer from tech support on the issue. It looks like my Pro Dock will be useless in this application. As soon as I plugged in a VGA monitor the HDMI port died. HELP!!

I factory reset my laptop yesterday and every since the internal mic only works when nothing is plugging into the jack socket, including headphones without a mic and speakers. This was never a problem before the factory reset and i could plug headphones in to hear people and could use the mic to talk.. now i can only talk to people when nothing is plugged in meaning i have to hear people out of the laptop speakers..

Any ideas guys? I dont want to have to buy new headphones :/

Cheers

A:Tecra R850 - Internal mic doesn't work when headphones are plugged in

Check settings in sound properties (playback and recording devices).
Be sure Microphone is listed and enabled in recording devices.

Please check all this and send some feedback.

I have two Toshiba notebooks and everything works perfectly so I don't see some reason why it should not work on your Tecra too.

Hi guys, just found out this place, seems to be a good forum so I try it here.

Last night I got hold of a 27" BenQ GL2750HM, so far so good.
I have my main display from the DVI port to HDMI port on the screen and my secondary screen is my 60" TV which is connected through HDMI port on the graphic card into the HDMI port in my reciever.

The main scheme for my setup is like:

- Radeon 7970 DVI > HDMI Main monitor (BenQ GL2750)
- Radeon 7970 HDMI > HDMI Reciever (ONKYO TX-NR609)
- ONKYO TX-NR609 > 60" TV

So to the problem now.
When the HDMI cable is connected to the graphic card, I need to have my TV ON in order for my main monitor, the BenQ, to work and if I turn off the TV the BenQ is getting black, like a standby mode, however, there is "no signal" to the monitor.
This was never a problem with my other screen, I could have the HDMI cable connected to the graphic card, the TV off and the reciever OFF without the main monitor went black.

I hope I expressed myself good enough for you too understand, if not, please reply

Thanks in advance.

Hello, guys! So my problem is that one of my ports are not working. I have 2 ports (3.0 and 2.0) and the 2.0 is not working. It all began with preinstalling the laptop and from then the 2.0 port is not working. I tried to return to previous versions of the drivers but still didnt work. Thanks in advance!

I've got a gateway DX4680 desktop, and a dell s2409w monitor.

What went wrong –
hdmi connection between computer and monitor stopped working about 35 days after getting the computer. 
Had no problems with the hdmi connection between computer and monitor prior to that. 
Worked completely fine. 
 
What I’ve tried to fix it:
1)     
Replaced the hdmi cable – didn’t work
2)     
Got some adapters to test out the hdmi ports on both the computer and the monitor – ran from the hdmi port on the computer with a hdmi-to-dvi adapter into the dvi port on the monitor – that worked. 
Used another computer that has a dvi output and with a dvi-to-hdmi adapter into the hdmi port on the monitor, that worked. 
So it seems that the hdmi port works on the computer, and the hdmi port also works on the monitor, just can’t get it to work hdmi to hdmi again (it worked fine for about a month, so something has changed, apparently).
3)     
Also tried setting the computer to an earlier restore point (date prior to the problem starting) – didn’t work.  The problem started after a window's critical update, as best I can tell.  Thought if the update caused
the issue, then going back to an earlier restore point would resolve it, which it didn't
4)     
Also ran windows updates and installed all ... Read more

Any ideas on how to diagnose/solve this one (in particular recommendations on utilities that might help would be welcomed). My Sony Vaio PCG-K23 has three USB ports - two on the left hand side and one at the back. Let's refer to them as 0, 1 and two proceeding from the nearest to the furthest. When I insert my 128MB USB flash drive into USB port 0 or 2 it works fine. When I insert it into USB port 1 the LED flashes as it registers and then blinks regularly as would be expected if it was working fine but Windows is never notified that a new storage device has been inserted. I have checked Event Manager, Device Manager and Everest to see if there's anything untoward reported but - other than the fact that the device is not listed when in USB port 1! - there's nothing significant there. I have the latest drivers etc. Any ideas why one of the three USB ports would (not) work in this way? If there is some specific information that I need to post to assist with diagnosis let me know. Thanks.
