T61 - 7660-16G USBs/Optical drive does not work

2017-06-05, 17:03 PM

The USBs are not available for booting (F12) nor is the optical drive working (no light). I have enabled the USB in the BIOS. When running W7 no USB is working when I connect an USB stick.

 

Looking in the BIOS Startup the USB FDD is marked with a minus sign.

 

Any clue?

Re: x220 usb ports not working

I wasn't sure what model you meant.  I guessed x220 notebook.  If that isn't correct, post back and I will move it again.

 

First, look in the device manager and see if the USB port show up.

 

The port on the left is on a different hub from the one on the right.  Do they (not) work the same?

 

Look in the BIOS under security/I-O Port access and confirm USB isn't turned off.

Many security features are not reset by F9.
