Satellite Pro C660-21D - Windows Media Player stopped working

Question: Satellite Pro C660-21D - Windows Media Player stopped working

The icon on the bottom toolbar has lost the Windows Media Player icon and I can no longer view any videos. I get a "server execution failed" message. It will not start from the Start menu; all I get is a very brief flash of a new window that then disappears.

The window appears empty but it flashes on and off so quickly it is impossible to be sure. I have not been adding any new programs; only the usual Microdsoft updates. I've tried going back to earlier restore points and also turning Media Features off and on again from the Start menu to no avail.

Any ideas as to what has happened and how I can fix it?

Preferred Solution: Satellite Pro C660-21D - Windows Media Player stopped working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite Pro C660-21D - Windows Media Player stopped working

Unfortunately I cannot say what is wrong there but you can try to find some Microsoft forum and ask there what can be wrong with this application. Generally speaking I think it is not Toshiba related issue.

If nothing helps download VLC player and enjoy your videos.
For me it is the best player and I use it for the long time already.

Maybe some magician can tell you for sure why WMP has stopped working. Who knows what you have done with it?

Try to download and install latest version. Maybe it will works again.

Answer:MS Office has stopped working on Satellite C660

Hi

Maybe the trial version of MS Office is not valid anymore.
As far as I know if Windows 7 is available for this model then MS Works and MS Office Trial or ready are preinstalled.

What version do you have? Trial version or full version?
I assume you don?t have any MS Office disks. Right?

Well, in such case either you will try to set the OS to the early time point before the MS Office has worked or you will try to recover the notebook using HDD recovery or Recovery disk.

I was on me satellite c660 today when the mouse pad and the left and right hand buttons just stopped workin....

Went on to control pannel and mouse options and it say that the software that runs the mouse pad is all fine but it's obviously not.

Can anyone help me? :(

Answer:Satellite C660 - my mouse pad has stopped working

Hi

First of all check if the touchpad is not disabled.
You can enable and disable the touchpad using FN + F9.

If this does not help, I would recommend update the touchpad driver.
Uninstall the touchpad driver firstly, reboot the notebook, and then install the new downloaded touchpad driver.

Good luck

Hi everyone

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-2JD.

The keyboard has stopped working it only works when the on screen keyboard is selected as soon as I close the on screen keyboard it stops working. I have plugged in another keyboard that won`t work either only the mouse works and the keypad on the laptop works ok. I have used the Ubuntu live CD and the keyboard works with it but not in windows.

I have restored the laptop to factory settings and also done a clean install still does not work only when the on screen keyboard the keyboard works. Does anyone have any ideas of what the problem is? It seems something is preventing the keyboard driver from loading up.

Answer:Keyboard has stopped working on my Satellite Pro C660-2JD

Hi all,
I have been happily using Windows Media player 11 for nearly a year (since I purchased my Toshiba Tecra laptop) until about a week ago when it told me it encountered a problem while playing the file. Now I can't get audio from many other programs that use WMP as their audio player. So I thought I would uninstall and reinstall and it might be fixed!! No such luck. It actually doesn't uninstall - it rolls back to MWP10. And then you don't get an option to uninstall WMP10.

Since then I have tried a few things including installing another player -GOB - which didn't work either. It said something about needing DirectX7.0 or higher but I have v.9 installed so I'm not sure what's going on.

So far I've spent about 2 hours trying to read Tech support forums and the Microsoft knowledge base and no one seems to have any idea how to fix this.

Can anyone offer any suggestions? I'm hoping I don't have to reinstall Windows XP to get it working again...

Thanks in advance...

Answer:Windows Media Player 11 stopped working???

Click start>control panel>add/remove programs. Top right you will see a little box that says show updates, make sure it is ticked.

Scroll down and under software updates, remove everything containing Windows media player 11.

Then reboot.

Then click this link,

Follow the instructions to download your clean version.

Help! I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit, and my Windows Media Player gives a " Stopped Working" message every time I plug in a USB drive or and SD-card.

I've been unable to find a fix for this, and there is no way to uninstall/reinstall Media Player within Vista, at least not that I've been able to find. I work for a computer consultant firm, and even IT has shook their head at my problem.

Below is the Error from one of the many times it has stopped the Media player.

Windows Media Player worked for a while on my Vista 2Core then stopped working. I listen to music a lot and like Media Player so this annoyed me a great deal. Finally I bit the bullet and upgraded to Windows 7 (Home Premium) and guess what -
"Windows Media Player Has Stopped Working" again, and Windows Media Center cannot play dvd's. I am
gobsmacked and $200 worse off. Windows 7 is supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread yet there is no fix or patch for the Media Center bug - everyone's complaining about this - just do a google search across the internet.
After hours searching I managed to find a link to email-assistance from Microsft,
with a $100 price tag! This is ridiculous.
Can someone please tell me what Microsoft are doing to remedy their worthless Windows 7/Vista Media Center? I run editions of Windows XP and the Media Player on XP has not failed me once,
not once!
Please advise, thank you.

I upgraded a long time ago to Windows 10 and the system has been working for many months.  However now when I click on various movie files (such as .mpa format) I get the error "Window Media Player has stopped working."  The player loads
and looks like it was start but then stops and ends up closing out.  I was able to get some other formats to run but other common video files seem to be causing the same error.  I like Window Media Player and would like to know how to fix/repair
it but haven't had any luck. (I don't believe I went through any recent automatic upgrades / patches so don't even know why this quit working).

Answer:Windows Media Player Has Stopped Working

Hi, mmcraig, and welcome to the forums.

I think you're missing an update somewhere - for example SP1....

My version is 11.0.6001.7000....

If you're hellbent on not installing SP1, then all I can suggest is to uninstall *all* codec packages that you might have installed, reboot into Safe Mode, then run SFC /SCANNOW, then reboot, then install Vista Codec Pack - 32bit & 64bit Media Player Codecs as you *only* codec package (note, there are two parts, the standard Vista Codec package, and the x64 components, which you install *after* VCP).

Hi

I?ve had my laptop for several months and all was well until yesterday when the internal mic stopped working then today I have come to use the webcam and it is saying that it has failed and needs to be restarted (I have done this multiple times).

I then endeavoured to download the latest driver which I have on my pc. I run the file but nothing happen afterward i.e. no setup wizard nothing.
Am I doing something wrong, do I have to delete the existing application?

What is wrong here?

Answer:Webcam and internal mic has stopped working on Satellite C660-1D7

Hi

The webcam should be listed under the point: Imaging Devices
There you should see USB Video device.
Can you see this?

If can see this, then uninstall the driver in device manager.
Then go to control panel -> software and uninstall the webcam software.
Then clean the OS and registry using the CCleaner.
After that reboot the notebook and download the latest webcam software from Toshiba driver page.
Install the webcam software and reboot the notebook.

After the notebook has booted up, start the webcam software and check if the webcam can be used.

I have Windows Media Player 11, Vista Home Premium. Earlier today I decided to download a couple of new skins for the WMP from the Microsoft site, but once I'd downloaded them, I couldn't get them to open, and merely passing over their names with the mouse caused the program to stop functioning. I managed to remove the two skins, and now I just have two interfaces listed, the default one and Revert. Selecting Revert also causes the program to close down; I'd like to remove this name, but can't because I get the error message before I can click on remove.
Any ideas as to why this problem has surfaced, and how I can remove Revert? (couldn't find where it is stored using the search function). Thanks.

Answer:Windows Media Player has stopped working ... yes, but not the usual problem!

Try running a System Restore from a point before you downloaded - (System Restore - How to[11]=Backup%20Restore). You'll have to reinstall any updates or programs you've installed since then, but, obviously, not the Media Center ones.

Hi folks

I'm new to this forum. Hope to get some advice from you. I recently got an A100 laptop. It comes with Express Media Player (EMP) installed. Since my HDD is 160GB, I need to do some partition to protect my data should WinXP crashes and needed recovery. I used Toshiba's Windows Recovery CD to restore Windows into a 40GB partition and configured the remaining as an extended partition. The following is the final state of my laptop after that.
C: 40GB (contains WinXP)
D: ~108GB (for my Data)
I can see an unknown partition of ~250MB which is for EMP. I shut down my PC and turn it on using EMP button. It did not work! EMP fails to boot. Can you guys advise? Have anyone tried partitioning their HDD and getting EMP to work?

Answer:Express Media Player stopped working after Windows Recovery with partition

Hi

Usually if you want to use the Express Media Player functions the Express Mediaplayer Recovery CD must be run before performing the recovery from the Recovery DVD-ROM.

You have to known that you cannot run Express Media player after performing a recovery!!!

But it seems you have not formatted the whole HDD and crated only the additional partition. Possibly you don?t need to reinstall the Express Media Player.

I have investigated a little bit on the Toshiba computer technical knowledge and found this:

Yesterday, when I double clicked on an MP3 I'd just downloaded, Media Player didn't start. I tried using a launcher to open it. When that didn't work, I tried opening it from Explorer, but no go.

Today I wanted to run a search to make sure a backup operation had worked correctly. When I clicked the Search Button I got a blank Search Companion the color of my desktop.

Usually, I use another player to listen to music, even though WMP is my default player. And usually, I use Search GT instead of Windows Search when I'm looking for a file. So - I don't know exactly when the applications quit. I am wondering if it has anything to do with Windows latest update. However, I don't see anyone else posting about this problem.

Do you mean the function buttons between the keyboard and display? If yes I think you mean the CD/DVD button that launches the Windows Media player. I?m right?

You can configure this button in Toshiba button support. If you have installed the VAP look on start > programs > TOSHIBA. There you should find this application and there you can configure this key.

Hi, I listen to internet radio and watch internet tv (streamed) through Media Player. A few weeks ago I could suddenly not listen to radio anymore, fortunately the site lets me choose between different players so I can still listen through Quicktime. Yesterday afternoon I watched a television show without problems but when I tried it yesterday evening all of a sudden it didn't work anymore. Unfortunately this site (nor all the other ones) does not give me the option to choose another player. I tried it again this morning but it still didn't work. I've tried it on another pc and it worked just fine.

What has happened to my pc and how can I solve it...?

Any comment is appreciated!

Answer:Media Player suddenly stopped working

Have you tried System Restore and restoring the PC back to a date when it did work? If not, give that a try first. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C55t-B laptop that has an internal DVD player. It's only several months old. When I first attempted to play a dVD it worked. After I updated to Windows 10 the DVD stopped working.

There is a driver (?) listed TSSTcorp CDDVDW SU-208FB
When I click to check it - it says "working properly"


YET, the player doesn't work when I attempt to play a DVD.

I downloaded the VLC media player
It still will not recognize that I have a DVD in the player.

I've read multiple posts on problems with this issue. It's maddening that I may have to pay someone to fix a problem on a new laptop that worked prior to the update.

Hi

> Don't want to reinstall if not necessary.
I?m not quite sure why the software stopped working but I think it?s advisable to reinstall it.
You should firstly remove the old software (Toshiba player).
Then you should download the newer DVD player version from the Toshiba European driver page and should reinstall it.

Answer:My Satellite C660 has stopped playing DVDs

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there but ?theoretically? it can be hardware issue. Lens position for reading DVD is different as for CDs so maybe it cannot be calibrated properly.

Test it with original DVDs or data DVDs to see if the problem persists. If yes, I?m afraid you must exchange optical disc drive.

i have been happily burning and burning away my cds for some time. i have been getting dowload music and i have imported music into the windows media player via cds .

a few days ago i downloaded some audio material i had paid for and it is licenced to be burned to cd. after some password hitches the downloaded music was played in window media audio file format.

1)i then attempted to burn cds from this licenced download and windows told me that "you have an error with your system and i don't know what it is". well it does't say it quite like that, but according to the microsoft help centre it calls it an unclassified error.

2)Now i find though i do not know if it is related to point 1 , that every single wma file in the windows media library cannot be burned to a conventional cd. i have quite a library of files and now i cannot make cds out of any of them. what is going on??
3)To solve the problem i have downloaded all available updates from microsoft for windows media player 10.

i have also downloaded an attempted to use freeware cd burning programs other than windows media player. i am prevented from using them because i am being told that the windows media audio files are not appropriately licenced.

Hello, I've got a Toshiba Satellite A110 Notebook since 2006.
2 Days ago a friend formated my notebook. In order to make the systemstart a little bit faster, he stopped a few Toshiba applications in the system configuration. My notebook worksa now very good.

But here is the problem: Before formatting I could use these helpful Media Apps for my Windows Media Player - basically because of laziness to switch between the programms during working. :-)...
But now, they don't work anymore. :-(

Is it possible, that we've stopped an application, which is important to make these apps run?
Or is an additional driver left?
Or do they only work in cobination with Windows Media Player 10. (now I've installed the WMP 11)

I hope for your helpful answers.

But think over, that I'm not such great computer genius! ;-)... :-(

Answer:Satellite A110 Media Apps for Windows Media Player don't work!

Try to enable all disabled applications. Go to START > Run and write MSCONFIG inside.
When the ?System Configuration? window is open go to ?Startup? tab and enable all applications with empty Startup Item.

Restart your notebook and check if everything works well again.

I had an issue with WMP that was solved by removing it from the Windows Features/Media features (unchecking the box seen in your post), restarting, and then re-enabling it, and then restarting. When I then launched WMP it rebuilt its music library and everything worked correctly. You might give this process a try.

Answer:Windows media player stopped showing video

Doesn't seem to be possible to uninstall WMP 11 in Vista.

Do you have a restore point to roll back to.

You could try posting in the Windows Vista forum.

If you look in the Windows 7 forum, the general consensus seems to be that a complete install of Windows 7
is preferable to any kind of 'upgrade'.

When I first built my PC, my optical drives came with Power DVD 5 and 6. So naturally I installed PowerDVD 6. 3 months later, I move and my puter needs a reinstall of XP. When I get everything installed, I go to install PowerDVD 6 and I can't find the friggin sleeve it came it with the product key on it. So I installed PowerDVD 5. That seemed to work just as good. Windows Media Player and Media Center didn't have any problems playing and DVDs I had. Then a few months after that, WMP and Media Center wouldn't play DVDs cuz "Windows Media Player could not play the DVD because a problem occured with the digital copywrite protection."
DVDs still play perfectly with PowerDVD itself, but any other player I get an error that pretty much tells me that I don't have any codecs or software to play DVDs installed. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling PowerDVD 5, system restore to that time (would restore for some reason... reg. cleaners? Spybot?), and a repair of XP with the XP install disk.
I have Windows Media Center Edition 2005 which I like to use to play DVDs sometimes, so this is pretty annoying. Anyone know why WMP wont pick up on PowerDVD being installed anymore?

Answer:Windows DVD player stopped working

DVD players have region codes to prevent people from buying DVDs from other countries for cheaper. A normal DVD drive will allow you to change the code a set amount of time before it locks (you change it simply by putting in a differnet region code disc and clicking ok if it prompts you).

If you are viewing both local DVDs and store bought ones, you may have locked the drive on another region code. Only fix for that would be to replace the drive.

"the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

The hard disk is new, and i tried also with more 2 hard disks, and also with an external cd-rom drive.

I talked with the support from the local repair assistance, and they told me this occurs because the new hard drive ins't compatible with the recovery media?!

One of the new hard disks i tried, was the exact same model than the original hard disk, and the error still occurs, so the hard disk can't be the problem.

Is there any change of the recovery media is corrupted?

Could also be a motherboard problem?

Thank you

> Is there any change of the recovery media is corrupted?
Of course this is possible.
In case the HDD is OK, the recovery media could be corrupted.

>Could also be a motherboard problem?
I don?t think so?. I presume the HDD is recognized in BIOS properly and the error message says something about corrupted directory. I guess the disk directory is meaning and I think media should be replaced.

Hi,

laptop was accidentally dropped, worked okay at first but now won't load,
using f12 key to boot menu, the screen says,

pxe-e61 media test failure-check cable.
also pxe-m0f; exiting
pxe rom, operating system not found. can anyone please explain waht this means?

Answer:Satellite Pro C660-v10 does not boot: pxe-e61 media test failure

The codes you are getting relate to the computer "setting itself up" before loading Windows and finding either what must be there missing or something that the BIOS says is there but missing. I believe the "check cable" message is generated when the pre-execution enviroment (pxe) looks for a device on a known connection and gets no response. This could be that a cable is not connected or the cable is perfect but the device is "broken" and is not responding to the pxe request.

I don't know anything about c660.
Can you access the BIOS? - is there anything greyed out or missing.
Can you change the boot order so that the CD is first and then see if the computer can start to run from a Windows CD.

(I would think its the HDD - I would think a mechanical device is more likely to give up than the electronics)

I have an Acer Laptop 7720G downstairs with retail version of Windows 7 Pro SP1 and a desktop with Windows 7 Home upstairs, connected as a workgroup via a Home Network.

There is a hardwired connection and a wireless connection via a Netgear D6300 router which has the latest broadcasting facilities like ac. My Samsung TV (x2) and Internet radio also have wireless and have excellent wireless signals.

Recently I purchased Nero 16 to upgrade from Nero 12 and it came with some free extra programs. I installed Nero 16 with its inbuilt new media player and a Micromedia program. All seemed to be working well so I left my laptop turned on as my weekly backup with a system image was due to run late that evening.

The next day I went to stream music from the laptop via WMP11 and got messages to turn on streaming. clicking the Turn On Streaming button did nothing. Sharing Centre shows that streaming is turned on but the media player says Turn On Streaming.

I noticed that my Local Connection had disappeared and that my Adapter had a red cross saying that there is a broken cable or something. Disabled the wireless connection and enabled the laptop adapter and the hardwired connection worked, showing local connection again with Internet access, except for streaming. It did prove that the cabling in the walls is intact. Contacted Nero Help desk and after a few messages that did not solve the problem I asked for a refund and was reimbursed after uninstalling their programs.

Hello, my Satellite C660 experiences technical problems while playing audio and video. I play 320 kb ripped mp3s in Winamp and usually watch youtube when the audio and video regularly glitch and jolt. These only happen about a second at a time but the noise is very noticeable and unpleasant and happens regularly when I am on my computer.

I thought it could be problem with CPU/memory but I literally only have Chrome and Winamp playing and have turned off a lot of programmes for startup. If there's anything I could do to fix this, any help would be greatly appreciated (even something to make the pauses less loud and noticeable!).

Answer:Satellite C660 - Jolts and glitches regulary while playing media

Hi saurus,

Do you notice this behavior on preinstalled Windows 7 version from Toshiba or is this your own installation?
Furthermore does it happen on internal speakers or headphone? Have you tested both?

It?s not always easy to say what the reason is but in your case I would try updating the sound driver. You can download a newer version on official Toshiba driver download page:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Before you install the new version remove the old one first. Then restart your notebook and install the downloaded version of sound driver.

Answer:windows media encoder stopped working!!!

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, I assume this is version 9 you're using, not 7. Can we see what you have running at the same time:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, when you uninstall it, did you delete the actual folder for it? If not, uninstall it again via AddRemove, or the Start | Programs.

Then, open Windows Explorer and navigate to Program Files | Media Encoder (or whatever the folder is called). Then, click to highlight just that folder, and delete it.

You don't have Windows Media Player open at the same time when you're using Encoder, do you? If so, which version are you using?

Regards

Windows Media Center has stopped working on my dell studio 1749 laptop. When I try to open it tells me that windows media center has stopped working and that windows is checking for a solution to the problem. Well, that's been going on for a month. I've tried a recent system restore, checked this forum and microsoft answers forum for answers but with no luck.

Should I try a older system restore? Should I go ahead and use my system image I made last year which was right after I bought this dell brand new? Wanted to try and fix without re-install but if I can't find the problem that might be the only thing left to do.

I have HP Pavillion 9000dv with Windows Vista. It is a couple of months old. I have an HP video card that plugs into my express port on the side. It worked for a while and then when I plugged it back in after using my notebook elsewhere, Windows Media Center failed to recognize it. I see that this is a common issue. I worked on reloading the driver for a few days, spent an hour on line with HP. Gave up. A few days later it began working again on its own but it would record on the wrong channels. For example, it would record on channel 22 instead of 122. Thinking that I needed to reprogram the remote control I went to "set up" and starting setting up the TV again. I let me get to the " Downloading Settings Please wait" screen and then gave an error message of "Windows media center has stopped working and is restarting". WMC restarts, we go through it again, it stops at the same screen and restarts. Around and around we go. Around and around......HELP!
 

Answer:Windows Media Center Has Stopped Working

Ok, here is what the problem was. Windows Vista doesn't take kindly to Windows XP drivers. Don't even try to install them. My printer driver caused a cascade of failures that led to my internet connection going poof and my Windows Media Center getting stuck in the circle of doom. I restored the computer to a restore date before all this happened (from the partitioned drive), reinstalled the TV card driver, reinstalled the Sprint driver, re-set up the tv tuner with my Dish Network box and voila, now it all works. Many thanks to Michelle at HP who helped alot through email.

Having a similar problem. Difference is that I am trying to run Windows Media Center for the first time. It crashes within 10 seconds, even sooner if I try adding an extender or going through setup. And I'm running a 64-bit Home Premium on a Dell Studio 1535. All Microsoft has recommended (so far) is starting in Safe Mode.

I spend some hours to try to create the recovery disks for my Laptop (Satellite C660-1DG)

It fails on the second DVD halfway. It just hangs. CTRL-ALT-DEL does not work anymore a cold boot is required to start the thing again.

I tried several DVD's but NOGO each time halfway the second DVD it hangs.

I really need to create these recovery DVD's because Im going to upgrade the laptop to run a Windows Server 2012 install for development purposes.

I thought this would take just a minimum amount of time but... of course...

Any thoughs on any way to get this stuff working?

Answer:Satellite C660-1DG - Toshiba Media Creator Recovery fails creating 2nd DVD

I burned just another disk and it was full of validation errors: hundreds.

So I connected my external DVD writer (NEC ND-3500AG) (firmware 2.1A) and took THE SAME DVD and burned it: presto: no problems: 0 validation errors

So I deduce that the internal DVD writer (TSSTcorp TS-L633C) (firmware TF20) is chunky.

I am still in warranty but... is it any use?

I have a Satellite C660-10D that is within 1 Year Warranty that has suddently decided it doesn't want to boot up and gives a strange noise that sounds mechanical.

I've tried F2 & F11 options during boot but I keep coming back to the same messages whatever options I try:

Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller v1.23 (07/28/10)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
Operating system not found.

I can't get past this & get the laptop working, which leads to my second problem.

It is within warranty so I thought I would log for repair. The Serial number is recognised in the Support My Product section. But when I try to enter it in the repair section it says

ERROR: Serial Number not valid.
Please check and re-try.
Then gives a number to call that only works weekdays.

So I have what appears to be a broken laptop that I can't currently log for repair.
If you are able to help with either of these problems it would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Satellite C660-10D Operating System Not Found PXE-E61: Media test failure

Hi

I?m quite sure that the problem is related to the faulty HDD.
This would also explain the mechanical noise while booting.

The PXE-E61: Media test failure appears because the notebook tries to boot from LAN.
Why? Because the HDD could not be found and the CD/DVD drive does not contain a bootable disk.

So BIOS switched to LAN?

Therefore the HDD replacement should help you to sort out this issue.
If the warranty is valid, get in contact with an local ASP in your country. Maybe you could get a HDD which could be replaced easily?

Here is a database with all ASPs worldwide:

Hi,

As the title indicates, I have a c660 which only has one working USB port. The other one is dead and has been dead since day 1.

I have tried uninstalling the USB controllers, re-booting and allowing the automatic hardwarediscovery to run and install them again. This hasn't resolved the problem unfortunately.

I'm running windows 7 incidently.

Any one else had a similar issue or has any ideas??

Thanks,

WF.

Answer:Re: Satellite C660 - One USB is not working

If only one USB port does not work and if other is OK then I think that this is a USB port malfunction and not related to any software.

So in such case I think you should visit the Toshiba ASP for a motherboard check.
The USB ports are part of motherboard and possibly you need new mobo.
