The problem is that the USB 3.0 port continues to turn off shortly after connecting any device (mouse, usb memory, printer...).
The only way to restore it's functionality is to reboot. I have continued to have this problem since I bought the computer.
There is no issue with the 2 USB 2.0 ports.
I have bios 3.0, win 7 64bit home premium.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm not a techie but have had the same problem. called Toshiba had me uninstall the ports and then re-boot as
it would re-set (tech said) the ports. Still the same problem. Told me to send in or reformat and I said that was not acceptable. I bought it from OfficeMax and Toshiba said take it back and OfficeMax would give me a new computer, which they did. Now problem is this thing is sooooo slow as was its predecessor. I have a 4 year old HP that runs circles past this machine.

It's probably the Harddrive that's slow. I'm guessing 5400rpm drive.

I just installed the new BIOS and will report back. My fingers are crossed. I have been dealing with this issue for over a year now. Too bad it doesn't appear this new update addresses the SATA III interface not runing at 6 Gb/s. I wonder if Toshiba will ever bother to address this issue. I've been holding off upgrading to an SSD until this is resolved...
