Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook ?

The usb do not work at all. ibm t42 23731WU many thanks !

Answers :

If none of the usb ports are recognizing anything you hook up to them then that means the motherboard is bad. Easiest way to know, hook up a usb mouse or usb keyboard, those it should detect and install.

If it can't do that then you know for sure the motherboard is bad. If it does detect the keyboard and mouse then you know its the other devices that your hooking up that are faulty.
