I am running a laptop (toshiba satellite l30 101)on vista home basic. Out of the blue the usb ports (has 2 in total)stopped working at same time. In the past i did the little trick of switching off and removing battery and power for 30 mins and it worked (to discharge static). This time it hasn't even when i have left it over night
I have went into device manager uninstalled usb roots and rebooted, disabled them, rebooted and enabled them and nothing has worked. Even tried microsoft fixit still nothing. As a last resort i reinstalled the OS and the ports worked for a day then stopped again. When i connect camera it just says usb device not recognised on both ports. Same with the printer and card reader.
Please help, i am desperate
