What's more, even if I put this X40 in a docking station, its USB ports are equally ignored.
Is this a faulty motherboard, or could there be some arcane ThinkPad setting that is causing this? I think I went through every setting in BIOS, but I read there is some windows software called something like "ThinkPad Configuration utility" - could someone disable USBs within it in WIndows, and now they are off?

My solution, for a few years now, has been to put a USB adapter in the CardBus slot. But, one cannot boot from such an adapter. For boot options I am fortune to have an Ultra Base with optical drive.
