Last week I got a message stating a USB overflow or something like that when I had all of the USBs in.

Now, none of the USB ports are being recognized. This is a laptop, so I can't plug in a USB card.

Any suggestions???

Maybe it shutoff the USB in the BIOS. BIOS screens vary depending on computer manufacturer, but when your computer is booting, tap whatever you need to get in there (usually F1,F2, or DEL).
Once in BIOS, look for USB support, might be in "Advanced" section, make sure USB support is set to "On" or "Enable".

For more specific instructions, post the manufacturer and model number of your laptop.

Fujitsu
C Series
C-6581

Two things to look for that may solve the issue.
Bios update - and/or latest motherboard chipset driver.

Looking at the relevant page for drivers - http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/ - there doesn't seem to be any updated drivers/bios for this notebook, however.

This does point at a probable motherboard problem.

yeah i found your BIOS on the Fujitsu website, doesnt appear to have an option like that. Some computers don't ahave that option in BIOS

You might want to try:

or

and235100 may be right about it being a motherboard problem, but as a last resort before you determine that you would want to first reformat and reload your laptop (backup your important files first).

I just realized something, maybe all that needed to be done was hit "F9" to set Bios defaults. Probably when the BIOS was updated it set itself to defaults at the same time.

Good point - resetting bios to defaults is a quick, no-cost solution.
Thanks.
