phone and several usb flash keep reconnecting

Q: phone and several usb flash keep reconnecting

hello there, im having a problem, actually its been 2 years now and remain unsolved. my USB port keep reconnecting when connected to phone and other certain flashdisk, every second. but when i plug my portable HDD the reconnecting problem only occur with time periode of an hour or so, not every second.

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.

i think it was driver fault, i've sent this laptop back to service center, but they doesn't found that issue, i know this is my fault for not using windows 8 at the first place (the driver CD only work for win8) but i manage to collect win7 driver from asus website, but the website never update USB driver for win 10 tho.

Preferred Solution: phone and several usb flash keep reconnecting

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 and welcome to SevenForums,
What exact model flash drive sweet is not a specific description

I'd say the error would most like say must initialize caused by not properly removing the device
let windows initialize it you pretty much have no choice as far as I know :/

My windows phone is working slowly and I want to flash it so help please??? I need how to flash it
So please help me to know how to flash it

A:i want to flash my phone so please help

If your phone is working slowly you may want to reset it to factory settings. You can do that by going to settings -> about -> Reset my phone. If you want to install the OS again, then you need WDRT (Windows Device Recovery Tool), plug your phone to your PC, launch WDRT and select your phone. Then you should wait for WDRT to download required files and start the process.
I would recommend you to try resetting the phone to factory settings first.

Secunia,which I have used for years,had instructions for stopping Flash player from continuously attempting to. Update. I used the uninstall tool then emptied the Flash folder. NOW...the computer has no opening screen to signin on, can't boot in safe mode 'cause there is nothing on the screen; ditto for using my 'drivers and Utilities' CD. Whatever can I do?????? Responses will be seen on my phone, of course, contact with the outside world

A:Adobe Flash player...this is being posted from my smart phone

Since you have posted in the Win 7 section, I assume this is your operating system. I think you are going to have to do a REPAIR install of Windows, if you have the installation disc. If you don't have a disc but do have an activation number (which should be somewhere on the computer case) then you can borrow one from anybody and use that along with your own number.
Power up the computer, open up the CD drive, put the disc in and re-start and it should now boot from the disc. If it doesn't, check in the BIOS that the optical drive is first in the boot priority list, and change it to first if it isn't. When it boots from the disk you will be asked for language and keyboard preferences, then you will come to the screen where you have a choice between 'Install' and 'Repair'. Choose REPAIR and the repair system will start.
Given what you say above, it may well not work, but it will ask if you wish to restore Windows to an earlier point in time. Choose 'Yes' !  After a moment or two the 'Restore' screen will appear and it will list the latest restore point. If this is from before you made these changes with regard to Flash, use the offered choice. If it isn't from before this date, there is a 'Select other restore points' button. Click on this and you will see a bigger list. Select one from before the problem started, then click 'Restore'. It takes a few minutes, but you should be back to a working condition.
You will, of course, have all your Flash back as well. This time, take a more gentle approach to solving whatever problem you have with Flash !
If the above doesn't solve your Windows problem, post back with details of your computer - make model, etc.

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 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?

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.

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.

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.

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~!

A:Reconnecting wireless

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 half year old Saitek Cyborg Mouse disconnects and reconnects frequently during gaming. This started happening when I got a new screen, with higher resolution. I play games at the highest resolution, and play with lower graphics settings to compensate the lag. I get this info from the Windows log:

Event Source: PlugPlayManager
Event ID: 256
Description: Timed out sending notification of device interface change to window of "program or service name and/or GUID."

Which tells me to ignore it. Gee, thanks Bill.

I'm on WIN32XPSP3, got a WinFast 8500 GT and a Philips 220CW8 screen [NEW], also 2.6 GHz AMD 2X 64 athlon 5000+

Will I have to part from my mouse for a replacement, or is this fixable? Is it the mouse, or even worse, another one of my components? I have overclocked my GPU, but I don't care too much for it.

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.

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

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

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.

Hey there!

my internet keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting after for some reason. I am using wifi on my computer to connect to the internet and every other computer in the house uses same thing and works fine. But my computer keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting to internet for some reason. It just started a couple days ago. Sometimes it goes a couple minutes before disconnecting and sometimes it disconnects after a couple hours but it keeps doing it and is really annoying.

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.

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.

A:Puzzled Not reconnecting to internet

First- have you set up a connection with the conection wizard? If not- go to Start>Control Panel>NEtwork and Internet Connections> and then click on "Set up or change your internet connection" Follow the prompts.

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.

USB devices disconnecting and reconnecting in Win 8.1 x64 on x61t on the slightest movement, but inconsistently. Files are getting corrupted! I've disabled airbag protection. I've disabled power saving options on USB ports. I can't seem to fix this. I've installed every windows update I found mention of on the internet.  Could it be that the motherboard is damaged? Seems unlikely given that I get the same problem with usb ports on both left and right side of the machine.  Do I have to bid old faithful farewell? Many others report this problem on other computers. I also wonder if it's a problem with lenvo's new power management drivers delivered via windows update.

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 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.

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.

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/
I have scanned with malwarebytes full scan coming up with 0 results. Clean booting doesn't seem to fix it either.
I am using Windows 7.
Thanks in Advance.

THERE IS NO CORRECT BOARD, SO I SELECT ANYTHING. I have HP ProBook 470 G2.   I find one problem with USB3 ports.  External hard drives disconnecting and reconnecting. They work fine on PC USB3 When I connect the external hard drive to the new laptop throught USB 3.0 port, it gets randomly disconnecting and reconnecting continuously, even when I am not using it. Also happens if I connect to another usb 3.0 port. Also I have observed that If I connect the external hard drive to a USB 2.0 port instead of an USB 3.0 port all work ok, no randomly disconnection and reconnection occurs. It only happens when I connect it to an USB 3.0   Never have such problem on old HP ProBook 4540S laptop.

I'm quite sure this isn't a mouse issue like a intermittent cable or such But i hear that sound that you get when you pull a active USB device out of it's socket and the mouse is frozen then a few seconds later the reconnect sound and the mouse starts working again It happens no matter which USA port i use and i cannot make it happen by wiggling the cable It is also very intermittent in when it keeps then USB disconnecting reconnecting mouse does it It might work fine for most of the day then all of a sudden it disconnects USB mouse keeps disconnecting then reconnecting and reconnects several times USB mouse keeps disconnecting then reconnecting over the course of a minute or so then stops doing it for up to a day Nothing was changed since this started and the USB drivers are the original ones i haven't updated and the mouse driver has no new driver since i bought it about mo ago It's a roccat gaming mouse I think this is a USB issue but i can't think of what could have caused it to just start happening out of the blue

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:

net use s: \\server\shared

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.

Just a suggestion: Try to shut down the unit and your router and modem. After a few minutes, start the modem. Start the router after the modem is fully initialized and wait until it is also initialize. Then start the unit and check the connection.

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?

I've got a Microsoft Sidewinder mouse (wired) which I've had for about 2 or so years. Recently, it has started randomly disconnecting and reconnecting. Some of the time, it doesn't automatically reconnect, so I have to unplug the USB connector and replug it back in.

I've tried setting my device settings to not automatically sleep to save power and I've also tried buying a new USB card for my PC, both of which did not work.

What's unusual is that the mouse seems to work on my netbook which, with the other solutions I've tried, leads me to believe it is something to do with settings on my PC rather than hardware.

Does anyone have any insight into why is this happening and how to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

Our work computers are no longer connecting to the server. In the system tray there is an icon indicating offline file status and if I open it the computer information indicates that the computer is "unavailable for reconnect". There was someone working in this station before me and I don't know what could have been done to cause this, though I am aware that there have been general network connectivity issues where our stations have been unable to connect to a LAN network.

I read in an archived thread something about the security ID of a station will change with a fresh OS install - could something like that have happened here? I don't know anything about Windows Server so I'm going to need very detailed replies, here!

If WD cannot help on it, there is a workaround we can try. You may open Notepad and paste the following commands into Notepad.
net use [driveletter]: /delete net use [driveletter]: \\server\share /user:[username] password /persistent:yes
Please save this Notepad to a location with a name reconnect.bat.
Then, launch Task Scheduler, you may create scheduled task to run this *.bat file. Probably you can set it to run after several hours.

My computer at work (church office) was attacked by a computer virus last week. Of course, my antivirus software was shut down. I used the link on your site to clean up the files. I have my McAfee antivirus software back up and going. Only problem is I can't get the computer back online (hooked to the internet). We have wireless laptops on the network and they connect, but with the virus attack and then cleanup I'm thinking some of the settings changed or something. When I open IE or Firefox it gives me a message something about the Proxy Server. I would appreciate any help on how to get it back online.

Thanks so much!!

A:Reconnecting to internet after virus attack

Malware may install a proxy server, changing your browser settings and screwing up your ability to connect to sites.

With IE open...Tools/Internet Options...Connections tab.

Click LAN Settings button...clear everything and click OK. See if that helps.

If so, make the same type of check in Firefox.

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.

It tries to connect for about 12sec then it tries to reconnect for about 5-6sec, and this keeps doing that same process over and over. I have noticed in the back the amber light blinks every 3sec and the green light is solid. Do you think the port is about the fail or can i have any suggestion? I also reset the modem and disconnect the cable and put plug them back in.

Hi all,

I got my Win10 updated from Win8.1 about 4 months ago.

Recently, to be exact about 1 months ago I've started getting the blurred font issue referred as DPI.

I can confirm the problem only persists when I connect or disconnect my external screen.

When you boot into Windows 10 there are no issues at all, however as soon as you connect your computer to the external Screen that screen would get blurred fonts in certain applications such as Excel, Viber, Word etc.

If I logout and login back with my screen still being disconnected - the problem fixes itself.

Exact same issue is observed when you disconnect the screen: it required another logout/login to fix the fonts.

I've tried XP Explorer but it would not help in my situation.

I usually have 125% zoom for my DPI setting.
