Solved: Reconnecting HP Laser Jet 4050T

Q: Solved: Reconnecting HP Laser Jet 4050T

I used to have my HP 4050T hooked up to my Dell Dimension 3000 printer, running Windows XP about 2 years ago. It has been hooked up to different Dell computer but I decided I wanted to use it with my computer again. So I know the printer has been working fine. There is no message about a print driver not being says its sending to the printer, but nothing prints. I had a HP 5000 hooked up and it worked fine. Using the same cable I had on it, just changed printers. Please help!

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,

I'm having a recurring issue with my wireless network and would appreciate any help you can provide.

I connect to the web via a Belkin F5d7630-4a ADSL Modem with built in wireless router. The router is always on and I have a desktop PC connected via a wired connection.

When I first boot the laptop, it will generally find the wireless connection within a minute or so (although not always). If the laptop powers down, hibernates or sleeps, it sometimes reconnects, but generally can't. Once it's lost the connection, I generally need to reboot the laptop, sometimes two or three times to get it to find it again, even with the laptop sitting right next to the router.

I'm using WPA authentication and have hidden my SSID.

Can anyone suggest what I can do to resolve this, as it's driving me crazy.

I use the Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse v2.0 with my Samsung Laptop and the USB port disconnects and reconnects the mouse often. This makes it tough to use the mouse with my computer.

I connected my phone onto the same port for syncing and didn't have issues. Could this be a problem with the mouse (2 months old) or the laptop (4 months old)?

PS. I have unchecked Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power for all the ports, but the problem still persists.

My first visit to the site and hopefully someone can be of assistance.

I'd been hit with several Trojan viruses and numerous Tracking and Adware viruses - to the point where my PC kept crashing. I rebooted using the PC manufacturers CD Recovery disc (Fujitsu Seimens) but this has meant I don't have access to the Internet home page I once had (Google).

I'm using my wife's laptop (she still has Internet access thanks to a wireless router) to seek help.


Sorry but I'm a PC luddite.

PS. I might add that I use Mozilla Firefox.

I have a strange wireless problem. Iíve just bought a Dell D420 laptop (XP Pro). At my office it connect to wireless fine. I got it home on Friday and it would disconnect every 30 seconds or so and then reconnect; it did this endlessly. All other laptops and desktops in the house were working fine. We looked for a fix, tried a few things, and what seemed to work was changing the name of our home network; just changing the name and re-entering the network key. We had also changed channel but that by itself hadnít changed anything. So everything was fine until earlier today when the router needed re-setting. All other PCs in the house were fine but the D420 went back to constantly disconnecting and reconnecting again. Can someone please help!

I am finally switching over my work computer from Windows XP to Windows 7.

I have multiple network connections I connect to when I boot up. I've set myself as a new user on the servers I have to connect to, Windows 7 asked me to put in my username and password for each share, all connects fine but when I shutdown and restart, I see all my Shares as red x'ed "disconnected" and as I click on each one, I have to put in my username and password again. Windows XP always remembered my connections and logged me onto each share at boot up. I've checked "remember my credentials" but it's not doing it,

Am I missing something? on any restart or shutdown, I have to click on each share and put in my login credentials.

A:Solved: Windows 7 not reconnecting to network shares

OK, I figured this out, using a Computer Name as recognized by the network rather than my username, it remembers and logs me in when I restart. Not really sure why this makes a difference, but as long as it works, one less thing to worry about.

I have a couple of XP Pro SP2 machines that need to automatically reconnect to some network drives on startup. They both run applications that need access to these drives. The network drives are on LinkSys NSLU2 network storage devices. When I mapped them (to y: and z: ) I set them to reconnect at startup but this does not happen, on restart they show "disconnected". If I run a "net use" command they are reported as unavailable. Once I double click on them they open just fine.
Any suggestions please?

Ok so my internet connection has recently started disconnecting and reconnecting every 5 mins or so. It has never done this before and has started doing it out of the blue. It doesn't even appear to have cut out by the icon at the bottom but it does stuff like stop youtube videos from loading or when I am playing online poker or online gaming it will cut out for about 30 seconds before reconnecting again. It is quite frustrating and I am yet to have found any help anywhere online so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

A:Solved: USB Laser Scanner help

The Y adapter is generally only for older PS2 port style scanners, for USB they can simply plug into a USB port and thats all. In Device Manager the scanner should likely show up under the Human Interface Devices (HID) section.

To input the barcodes it reads, simply open any document editor such as Word, Excel, Notepad or pretty much anything that takes keyboard input, make sure the you click into the document or field where you want it to input the data and scan in the barcode and it should appear. Make sure that the scanner is configured to read the type of bar code you are using with it, it may need some programming if its not a standard bar code.

As always, if you cannot get it to work on this computer, try it on another computer.

My HP IIP LaserJet printer strted to give error 12 (Door open or no EP [Toner cartridge]) messages at initial turn on. The error cleared itself after a short time. This time began to grow longer and longer. When it reached well over an hour, I investigated. I found that if at turn on you block the exhaust air vent on the left side of the printer for a short time the printer error message changes to warm up. You can then remove the block from the vent, The printer then works just fine just like it did for the past eighteen (yes it's that old and I love it) years.

A:HP IIP Laser Error 12 Solved

Error 12
"This message appears if the EP-L Cartriage is missing or installed incorrectly, if the Paper Path Door or External Fuser Door is open, or if the exhaust fan is not working".

Is the fan operating at full speed? It looks like the printer monitors the fan speed.

I've never owned one, but I'm thinkng of getting one. My question is this:

To my understanding, a laser beam burns text into the paper, which means no extra costs (such as ink carts). However, everywhere I see them sold online, they also have replacement "toner" carts. What are these mysterious toner carts and why do I need them? Can't a laser printer "just work" without needing extras?

A:Solved: Question about laser printers

That is not how a laser printer works.

A laser beam inside the printer controls electrically charged areas on a rotating photo-conductive drum that match what will be printed on the paper. The charged areas on the drum then pick up microscopically tiny toner particles and transfer them to the paper. The paper then passes through heated rollers that fuse the toner particles to the paper.

Hi. I'm a production assistant at a small film company. We just moved locations and it was my job to reset all the tech. One of the most important things was to get a non-wireless network-enabled laser printer (HP LaserJet 1022n) onto the wireless network. I was having trouble with that, when sure enough, something else happened. I'm now getting a paper jam error even though there is no visible paper anywhere in the printer. I cleaned all reachable parts, I dusted the hell out of it with canned air, and I even took some of it apart just to get a better look - nothing. I had just been printing test papers last week, too.

We really don't have enough money to buy another networkable laser printer, so does anyone have any more ideas before we call someone to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

I'm looking for a new mouse. The only thing I require is that it is a laser or optical mouse. However, I don't quite understand the difference between the two. I used to have an optical mouse long ago and I use a glass mousepad, but only the old Ball mouse I had worked on that mousepad and the optical mouse had tracking problems. I hear that a laser mouse is stronger and could work on that kind of surface, but I wanted to ask before buying.

On the same subject, I'm really not sure on what kind of mouse brand/type to get. I never really know what to look for and not every mouse has reviews. Of course, the cheaper, the better since I am on a bit of a budget, but I want a decent quality product.

Does anyone knows how to use those shiny A4 foil sheets for printing onto paper using a Laser Printer? Please help

A:Solved: Foil Printing with Laser Printer

Hi Shirley, and welcome to TSG.

Do you have any kind of manufacture's or product name for the sheets?

Many years ago I used a product where you first used a laser printer to print in black the areas you wanted to have the shiny metallic finish. You used supplied high temperature tape dots to hold a piece of the film over the printed area. Running the printed sheet through the laser printer a second time without printing anything fused the film to the existing toner areas on the sheet. Not sure if you are talking about the same thing or not.

I have one of these and every so often it the mouse pointer sticks for several seconds which is annoying when gaming etc. I've only had it a few months of which its been for the last 2 to 3.

I haven't got the software installed as I see no reason why it would prevent it sticking + sucks up system resources.

It does it both on my desk which is a plastic surface with a bubbly effect and a mouse mat, both clean.

Is there anything else which could be causing this or is it just due to wireless-ness?

For some time now, I see that the latest mice have a high resolution + are laser

I have to admit, I'm coping just fine with an old optical mouse

Resolutions where never mentioned before?
What does a higher resolution give to you more than an ordinary mouse?

Obviously better - but how and why?


A:Solved: Do I need an ultra sensitive high resolution laser mouse?

Laser is actually not better, it's just newer and cooler. And harmful, in some cases, to your eyes.
Higher resolution gives you, well, more accurately moving mouse. I'd say the best thing out there, just on general level is something like the Logitech MX518. Optical, high quality, nice resolution, back and forth (or mouse4 and 5) buttons, change of sensitivity on the fly. Nothing too fancy and extra. It is, of course a bit of a gaming mouse, something cheaper will do just perfect for office work, web browsing, photoshopping, etc etc.

Well as of yesterday my wireless internet connection will randomly disconect itself from it's default wireless network and then reconenct itself immediatly. Now this isn't much of a problem except for the occaisonal webpages I need to refresh, but when I try to download a file and the internet reconnects itself it can be quite annoying, same with playing online games.

I'm not quite sure why it began to do this or how to fix it, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

(sorry if this is a really stupid question)

A:Internet keeps reconnecting on it's own

Not a stupid question. Most likely problem with your wireless being intermittently disconnected is interference. Things that can cause interference would be: cordless phones, microwave ovens, other wireless networks in the area (like neighbors). Is yours the only wireless computer using your Internet connection? If not, do the others experience similar problems?

So I have to restart the PC (with the modem already on) in order to get a connection. Connection is always found on start-up if the modem is already on. I had the same problem with Vista. It's a wired connected. I've already turned off 'allow the computer to turn off this device' in the power settings for the ethernet controller.
It?s not a modem issue since I have another PC running XP connected to another port on the modem which always reconnects.
I'm using 7100. Asus P5ke board.
Thanks for any help.

It would help you to understand what is happening to do some research on DHCP and IP address assignment.

A home network works in a similar way to the WWW. You turn your computer on but before it can access the Internet, it needs an address assignment. Your computer is connected to the ADSL modem, it is the modem that sends a "Handshake Request" to your Service Provider. When received and recognized, the Service Provider sends back an address assignment of 12 numbers like 304.567.200.117. With this address assignment, your computer can now surf the Internet.

If you turn the computer on first, then later turn the ADSL modem on, the computer will never be able to connect. The computer must be turned on after the modem has been connected to the Service Provider in order for the "Handshake" to work correctly.

A home network (any network for that matter) works in a miniature way. A router can manage 255 addresses and uses select addresses reserved for networks and so are never assigned to websites. A common network address is The router takes the place of your computer, the ADSL modem gives the Service Provider's address to the router. You turn your computer on and it sends its "Handshake Request" to the router. When received and recognized, it returns an address assignment ( to your computer and you can now surf the Internet. Each computer in the home network gets a different address assignment ( etc) which allows the router to keep tract of what data goes where.

For everything to connect properly, the ADSL modem must be turned on first, then the router, and last the computer. That's how it works.

So starting yesterday my internet just decides to reconnect every 20-30 min. This is very agrovating while im trying to online game because i keep getting droppd. I called the cable internet company and they were helping until i told them i had a router, "oh, its probably the router, we cant help you, try them and thank you for calling" *click* they didnt even say anything, it was more like they were wanting a quick way out.

Either way, this problem affects multiple computers at once and is getting very annoying. If anyone can shed some light thatd b AMAZING! thank you in advance

Since 2 weeks ago, I started disconnecting for over 10 seconds then reconnecting every 5 minutes or so from Skype, and this would only happen from 8 PM to when I go to sleep at around 12 Am. When this happens, I can still surf web pages and use wireless devices. So far I have tried restarting my router/modem, changing my DNS, disabling firewalls/antivirus, and uninstalling/reinstalling my network adapter drivers, but the problem still persists, and it's really making me angry because I practically can't play LoL or use Skype after 8. What do? :C

Also I'm fairly new to this kind of stuff because this is the first time I had this problem so please bear with me if I don't understand some things.

A:Dissconnecting Then Reconnecting

It sounds like a Bandwidth issue during peak evening times.
Try testing your connection speed before and after 8pm, also connect direct to the Modem/ Router with a cable instead of wireless if you can.

Relevancy 39.99%

Hi there,
So I've been having this problem: my ADSL Router instantly reconnects to internet each hour at fixed time. I tried to google the problem, but what i saw other people have was expiring leases and that's not the case here.
I'm using Windows 7 and Pirelly DRG A125G ADSL router if that's any help.
I've tried contacting ISP, but they've been just checking the line and saying "there are not abnormalities" so they've sent a guy to fix the problem and he changed the router into an identical one. The problem still consists, the time when it happens changed, but still each hour, fixed.
The lights on my router doesn't react to this "crash" and my ip stays the same after it.
Any idea what the problem could be?

A few weeks ago, I started having a problem where if I signed out of AIM at nighttime, I'd be unable to sign back in for a couple hours. I recently replaced the router and now my AIM will randomly disconnect and reconnect itself all day and night. It does it every 30 minutes to a couple hours. I'm not exactly sure what info I should list:

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Internet Service: HughesNet
Modem: HN7000s
Router: Belkin N+
Wireless USB Adapter: Linksys WUSB54GC
AIM version 5.9

My computer was recently reformatted so I don't think it's a virus issue and this also happens on Vista.

-tried installing aim 5.9. It ALSO disconnects.
-rebooting computer and router. Still disconnects.
-reinstalled both aim 5.9 and 7.3 multiple times. Still disconnects.
-tried using pidgin and AIM at the same time. Pidgin will not disconnect, but AIM still does. However, AIM seems to disconnect a LOT LESS while running with pidgin(sometimes it goes a full 2 hours without DCing).
-googled solutions. have been unable to find a solution; most forums describe problems from vista and xp that were a couple years back.

i KNOW it is not my internet connection, wireless or ethernet cables fault. I have tested all 3 of those extensively while running aim on other computers that don't disconnect, and also surfing the web, downloading, streaming, and playing games while running aim in the background. all work seamlessly, but aim still disconnects.


and please don't suggest that I use third party clients. I will if I have to, but I have tried all of them and I hate them. I prefer to use AIM.

Check event viewer to see if the disconnects are logged

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

Hi, I have a Windows XP 2002 with SP2. I've been having many technical difficulties with my computer. First of all, it freezes every 2-5 minutes. When I try to turn the computer back on after it froze, it turns on, but the screen doesn't show up. I usually have to wait about 5 minutes to be able to get it to boot correctly. Secondly, my usb device keeps reconnecting automatically like crazy even if I don't have anything plugged in. If I do have something plugged into my usb drive, it reconnects it too out of nowhere non-stop. Last of all, my computer reboots itself sometimes, mainly when I open Windows Media Player and Firefox together. I have tried scanning my computer with Spybot and I deleted everything it found, but it's still acting up. Is there a problem with my motherboard or is it just a virus?

Well.. I want to figure out how to disconnect from my internet, then reconnect at all in less then 2 seconds. People without wireless internet can do this easily by pulling out the cord then just simply putting the cord back in.. but how do i do this for wireless internet? It takes about 10 seconds to reconnect.. and this takes way too long. This isn't for anything illegal or anything :3 just for a video game. Thanks for your help

P.S. I have tried disabling/enabling my wireless internet, turning off router then turning it back on, connecting to an internet source that doesn't work then cancelling that and going to the internet that DOES work, and.. i think that's about it. All of them take too long to reconnect. THANKS~!

It's the nature of the technology. Wireless networking involves an antenna searching for a signal. You're not going to be able to speed that process up. 10 seconds is pretty darn fast.

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
My pc was working perfectly for about a year now, but these days it started having problems.
In the past few weeks it started disconnecting from the internet with the message: you don't have a valid
ip configuration. (It was working on the other pc connected to the router with lan, and on the notebook connected through wifi)
A reboot of the pc/router did always solve my problem in these situations.
Yesterday, my internet connection started connecting/reconnecting, and I couldn't solve it in any way, not with
a restart, and not with that network repair tool (idk it's name, I have hungarian windows). When it stayed connected for more then 2 seconds I was even able to load google, youtube, other sites,
I tried some solutions, like disabling the energy saver settings, setting it to 10mb half duplex, etc, but nothing worked, my
internet kept connecting/reconnecting.
Today I started my pc and it works perfectly.. Any ideas on how to solve it? I have the newest lan driver.

My mobo is Asrock 960gm-vgs3 fx.

I keep receiving the following Warning : RECONNECT YOUR DRIVE... Your files will be temporarily copied to your hard drive until you reconnect your File History drive and run a backup.
How do I reconnect The File History and run a backup please.  I am on Windows 8.1


File History is looking for your external drive that you set up for backups. If you no longer have that ext hard drive, open file history and turn it OFF. Open Control Panel and search for Backup to find it.
You need to have an external drive to store File History backups. Meantime, copy your personal files you don't want to lose--music, photos, docs etc to other media like usb thumb drives, cds, dvds or network drives. Remember that backups stored on your internal hard drive defeat the purpose of having backups. Backups are needed when that drive fails.

If still no connection:

Did the drivers install for the ethernet card? To check go to My Computer and right click on it and choose Manage. Then click on Device Manager. Look at your Network Adapters. If there is a yellow question mark there- then it may be that it did not load the drivers for it.

That is a good start to find out what is happening. Post back with results.

Is there any way I can fix this problem?


A:Internet keeps disconnecting and ten reconnecting

The first thing I would do is run to the manufacturer's website for your wireless device
then download and reinstall the latest version of the driver/software they have.
It's possible that alone could fix the problem.

I would also look at power options to make sure nothing related to connection is set to disable/reduce power EVER.

but i sucesfully narrowing the problem tho, it only occur when plugged to charger (laptop btw) and when Nvidia GPU is enable, when Nvidia disabled and in charging the problem is gone, like never exist.

Hey guys I have this problem with my wifi internet.
It works fine for about 3 minutes, then drops a few bars in connectivity for about 20s, then fully disconnects before reconnecting in around one minutes time. This pattern keeps on repeating. The internet wifi on my phone and my girlfriend's laptop works completely fine. This started happening around 2 weeks ago and has been very frustrating. The two months before that, (when I moved into this house) there were no problems with the internet.
The internet is stable in Safe Mode with Networking, thats why I think there is something wrong/

Hello, we recently upgraded to a dual-band belkin router using comcast's cable service.

I have successfully configured 4 laptops, iTouch, and a desktop (wired) to have great internet connections. However when trying to configure for another laptop, I am able to connect to the wireless network but everytime I open a webpage or connect to a website in a browser, the connection disconnects then connects once more failing to open the website. The laptop in question is XP SP3 which 2 other laptops have the same OS as well.

When checking ipconfig, an error message pops up saying:
"An internal error occured: a device attached to the system is not functioning.
Please contact Microsoft ...
Additional information: Unknown media status code."

Any ideas or replies are greatly appreciated.

A:Wireless connection keeps reconnecting

Also, the laptop works fine with a wired connection and is able to connect to unsecured wireless networks and works fine.

I just got my internet working again today, after getting rid of a virus going around my campus, and now I'm having problems with AIM. It's constantly disconnecting and then reconnecting...and sometimes it will say "You are attempting to sign on again too soon. Please try again later." with my main screen name, even if I wait awhile. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hi all. I have recently set up a new internet connection. It is comcast cable, through a motorola SB5120, into a Dlink 524 router. It is WPA encrypted. My roommates and I have problems with losing the internet. We can't connect to webpages, and aim signs off. All we have to do is disconnect from the network, then reconnect, and everything is fine again, however that is really annoying. I am currently running windows XP, but it is effecting macs as well, so thats not part of it. Any ideas what might be causing it?

A:Constant reconnecting needed

Well, since it's a common component, try this:

Connect one or more of the computers using an Ethernet cable and see if you still have the disconnect issue. If so...

Connect a computer directly to the modem and see if you have a disconnect issue. If so...

Register at DSLReports and run their line quality tests. Post a link to the results here.

I have no idea why, it JUST started happening yesterday. And I have downloaded nothing, in fact, I have hardly done anything for this to happen. I realize SP3 has come out, but that should NOT affect my keyboard, since even still it is optional.

Really, it keeps doing it frequently, and even now, truly annoying. my mouse keeps working though. And yes, it IS plugged in, and not being shaken or anything.

Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Intel(R) CPU 2.53GHz
2.53 GHz, 512 MB of RAM

Any other info, tell me and I'll probably need advice on how to do it as well... Thank you.

(I also tried googling this first but to no avail, it was unsolved.)

A:Keyboard keeps disconnecting and reconnecting

The keyboard is USB, it happens in any slot, it could be the ports. The thing is it only starts disconnecting when I start using it, and the mouse has no problems until the keyboard disconnects for about 3 minutes then reconfigures all the keys to do weird things and my mouse to be put on handicapped mode.

I thought it could be a virus, or malware, but AVG shows nothing, other than a trojan which I deleted, and I am going to do more checks with the programs you say work well for malware(was going to yesterday but the site was down).

Any responses requesting more information, I would be happy to oblige. Thank you for your time.

Hello giggidygiggidy


"There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network."

This is telling you that you have the same IP address as another machine on your network.

Right click your Network Connection/Properties/General
Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) (Scoll down to find it)
Click Properties.

Make sure both of the following are checked
Obtain an IP address automatically
Obtain DNS server address automatically

Reboot and Windows should find you another IP address

Be gentle with me, I'm new to the networking side of computers.

I've recently set up my two computers (relatively new DELLs) so I can have internet (ADSL) on both. It works, but every 10-20mins the internet drops out I have to pull the power plug from the router (Dlink DI 704P) and plug it back in again then everything's ok for another few mins.

Any ideas about whats going wrong?

My boss just bought 5 new Dell Dimension 2350 with XP home ed and wanted me to put them on the network. I've set them up and they can see the network fine, but when i map a drive and reboot the machine, the drives will not reconnect. I chose the options to reconnect but it still does not work.

Am I doing something wrong or is there something i can do to make sure it reconnects after a reboot?

A:mapped drives not reconnecting in XP

I've seen this happen, and haven't figured out why. Instead of wasting my time on the problem, I simply worked around it. In your startup folder, just make a new Batch file (.bat) with lines like:

Hello all. For quite some time, we have had the issue that when employees reboot their PCs and logon to the domain with their network username, their network drives mostly always show a X by them, which then the user thinks the drives are disconnected. Double clicking on the network drive will reconnect it and then are able to use it. My questions is, is there any GPO that would force connect the network drives back and show them online without the X that I can apply for our users? Any insight would be great. Thank you!

A:Reconnecting Network Drives via GPO

This can happen from time to time, its normal.

normally its because your machine looks for the server before a network connection is established.

My lan cable says it has been unplugged, then 1 second later says its now plugged in. Therefore, I get disconnected from anything I have an active connection to every time this happens (happens about every 5 mins).

So, I got a new internet service provider a few week ago, now I am having issues with my internet. What happens is every random minutes or so, my internet for my pc, keeps disconnecting me from the internet then a few seconds later, it connects me again. This is very annoying when I am gaming, if anyone could help me please! I want to get this problem over with. I already tried deleting my network adapter and that didn't do anything, and I also restarted my router, which didn't do anything either. I connect to my internet with an Ethernet cable (wired), this doesn't seem to be happening to the wifi and I don't notice any lights from router/modem.

I would uninstall the ethernet/NIC driver and then reboot and reinstall same...the current installed driver may be damaged.

Got weird issue with my usb hub D-Link dub-h7 on iMac 27" 2013 ME089 running bootcamped Win 8.1 x64. Whenever I play games and alt-tabing to windows, system keeps reconnecting all my devices with typical "reconnect" sound for this. Playing MMO is horror atm because I need alt-tab a lot and everytime I do that - windows keeps reconnecting all stuff (hooked usb keyboard and phone charge atm). Devices like X7 mouse resets its speed light profile and keyboard may lag, even without playing game.
Tried to update 8.1 to latest version and use some tweaks from internet like turning off devices power saving, but nothing helped.

Found out that I'm not really the only one with such problems and Windows 7 doesn't have this issue, but unfortunatelly can't go back to 7.

Hope someone can help me with this... Thanks

A:Usb Hub keeps reconnecting devices while gaming on Win 8.1

Hi dezmen3!
This issue could be caused by a few things.
First thing that comes to mind is that the USB hub may not be supplying enough power to all the devices connected to it. Usually, connecting devices that require more power through the hub is not recommended, as they might not receive enough power to work properly. Usually a powered hub is more desired. One that has it's own power supply.
Are your USB drivers up to date?
Have you tried another main USB port to connect the hub in? Are you sure it hasn't suffered any kind of damage?
Another idea is to manage your power options in Windows 8.1. It's true that the new feature in Windows8.1. about power saving is making some problems and if you've disabled it, then that shouldn't be the cause. Still, you could look around and tweak your power options a bit more.
Go to Control Panel ? Hardware and Sound ? Power Options. Depending on your certain configuration, you may find something that changing it would help.
Best of luck!

I have been having problems lately with my ethernet and charger disconnecting and reconnecting. Sometimes my charger wont even reconnect unless i unplug it from the 2nd cord, plug it back in. This has been happening over the past week now.

A:Ethernet and Charger keep disconnecting and reconnecting

Does the power socket at the PC end feel loose?If yes, then it may be a bad socket or a socket that may have become loose over a period of time.Although this sort of this is rare, I would sugegst you to try and see if moving the power cable in its place makes any difference.If not then it could be a bad AC Adapter.Have you tried with another/spare AC adapter?

I have a rather old Linksys WUSB11 Wireless-B USB adapter that worked fine with my old D-Link DSL-2640T Wireless G router. However when I changed to D-Link DIR-615 router, problem arises. My USB adapter keeps disconnecting for a few minutes and reconnects to the router. Signal strength was averagely 3 bars that time. It was used on Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Any idea on why is this happening? Thanks in advance.

USB is notorious for being flaky and i would and have always advised against using it, however you could try changing the channel on your router to another number this may fix the issue for you.
