Ever since updating my BIOS I have had issues with all my USB connected Diskdrives, these include thumb drives IOMEGA devices as well as a SSD in a drive toasted. ALl worked before the updates BTW, all of these device work in other machines also. I have tried different ports I have connected them to the ports on the docking station as well as the PC. THe USB ports work they just do not like disk drives at this time.
I have tried all of the following:
WIthin Device manager delete all of the USB devices , reboot and let them get re built.
Witihin device manager do as above then delelte infcache.1 file from windows/system32/driverstore and then reboot, this requils the infcache driver still no good.
Now I am considering usinag a older USB driver from the Lenovo webbiste.
Mabe someone on this board can offer some additional suggestions, one that is not a option is re-install windows.

The OS in question is Windows 7 64Bit Enterprise edition. As to booting Linux I do not have a Linus disk to even try that from. I do however have a older drive with a previous image of windows 7 on it from this machine. I intend to install that drive and see what happens. THis should establish this as a WIndows isuee(if everything works) or as a BIOS issue (if they continue to not work).
