W520 USB 3.0 (blue) ports intermittent

The two USB 3 ports on the left hand side of my W520 have become intermittent. When I first plug in a drive, they work for a few minutes only, then my external external HDD cannot be seen. The USB 2.0 port on the rear is OK.
Any suggestions?

My wife's laptop is so slow to start. During boot, the following is displayed:

PXE E05: The LAN adapter's NVM configuration is corupted or

I've tried installing a Hitachi 5400 100 GB HDD. It is not recognised by the T30. The BIOS is updated.

What I really need are posts from those who have successfully installed a 100 GB HDD in the T30
