windows 7

pen and paper definatly easier to understand, in prepareation for taking back to place where i bought as still under warranty, i deleted a few things off it so they couldnt try to blame them, took it to a friendly pc shop and had them take out the two extra gig of memory i had put in it as 1 on its own which is what it came with was totally useless,then a day before i was taking it in just to make sure it hadnt self rectified like your ailment does just as you walk into the doctors..well not any major one...i tried it again and dam if it doesnt work ok, have used the same tracker balls and the same memory sticks in it which failed it before but they work ok and dont freeze...what can i say..AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Windowds 7 Professional - 64 bit
USB Ports get locked up after plugging flash drive - Toshiba Satellite

I have the same problem with "Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049".
After plugging an USB drive, it locks up as if there is no power in the port.
The external hard drive also doesn't get power. It looks that I am plugging stuff into a turned off laptop!
By the way, I installed a fresh windows 7 and my wireless mouse was working all right till I plugged my external WD HDD! Then I installed Win XP SP3 (updated 2012) and my wireless mouse worked well till i plugged my External HDD.
I think there is virus either in my external HDD or Internal HDD that locks up (or power off) the USB ports! My ESET NOD32 is up to date! What could be the problem?
