Flex 2-15 - Won't recognize any external hard drives

Running Win 8.1 here. I have 3 different external hard drives (WD and Toshiba) and this Lenovo won't recognize any of them. One uses an external power supply, so it's not underpowered USB ports. Three separate USB cables. All USB drivers are up to date. I went into power management and disabled USB selective suspend. Diskmgmt does not see any of the 3, and Device Manager says it loaded the drivers but could not detect the hardware.

 

BTW all 3 work just fine with other 'pooters. Running out of ideas here. Anybody have a clue?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Flex 2-15 - Won't recognize any external hard drives

Thanks for the Mod assist! This problem has been resolved now. I had recently loaded up and signed into a VPN, required by the IT **bleep**'s at work in order to remote in. Knowing their propensity for being on the paranoid side, I uninstalled it and rebooted.  Voila! Instant external drive functionality.

 

I should have known.
