Strange problem when I connected a powered USB Hub

Q: Strange problem when I connected a powered USB Hub

I ran out of USB ports, so I went in for a powered USB hub.

One by one, all the USB ports went out of action, and then windows (XP) would not boot normally.

That was quite a scare.

I detached all devices attached to the USB ports and ran Device Cleaner (thanks to Lookin)

The PC began to boot normally, and all but one USB came alive.

Any explanation?

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.)

This is my second powered USB hub and they both will not allow my PC to boot while the hub power is connected. When I press the power button on my PC it reacts just like the button don't work but as soon as I unplug the hub power it starts to boot OK. At the moment I only have a Razer mouse plugged into the hub. I tried different USB ports on the back of the PC for the hub and same thing. It appears to be a power conflict with the hub and the motherboard? Any ideas?

My laptop shows that I'm connected to my wireless router with a strong signal and I can get on-line fine, but when I try to view the wireless networks within range, it shows none! Not even the one I'm connected to. I had turned some services off, but I checked and all those relevant to connecting wirelessly and they seem to be set to auto and are running, including the "wireless zero configuration". What do think the problem may be? I'm running WinXP on an Asus netbook.

A:Problem with eSATA powered USB

If I understand your question, you want your USB 2.0 to be faster like a USB 3.0.
Thats not going to happen. If your motherboard doesn't have any 3.0 USB ports you don't get USB 3.0 speed.

Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Okay, so I have a little bit of a problem, I turned my computer on this morning only to find that all the folder icons had been replaced by 'no icon' icons (the paper with the stuff on it).

Now, when I click my folders, it brings me to the search window, with that folder in the search area. This means I need to right click every time I want to open one of my (now) ugly looking folders.

I've gone through folder options, and under the list of options only 'find' and 'open in onenote' comes up... not open or explore. It says I can add a new type, but I browse and I doubt there's a program to open folders.

Any help? Yes... I've tried System Restore

I've got a new NAS (WD MyCloud 3 TB) which seems to be good connected to my LAN over a GBit Router. At least it's possible to transfer big files at maximum 105 MByte/s with the Windows copy function.
So I decided to make the NAS my backup drive (Windows 7 integrated Backup function from a SSD). Before I used a USB2-connected hard drive. The daily incremental backup took about 5 minutes  (2,5 GByte). Now when using the NAS the backup
took 43 minutes for the same amount of data.
A daily backup usually consists of 50 files, the data is collected by .zip-Files (about 200 MB each). Looking at the timestamps I see that on of these files (mostly containing 4-5 parts of outlook.pst) needs about 5 minutes to be generated and/or transferred.
What could be the reason for the slow data transfer? Is this a caching issue? What can I change?

Win 7 Ultimate 64byteThe network icon in the tray is red with a red X.Network and Sharing center states I am currently not connected to any networks.I click on 'Connect to a Network', at the top of the pop up it says 'Not Connected', below the 'Connections Are Available' icon it shows my wireless network and connected.I can't connect to a HomeGroup.Internet connectivity is working.

A:Windows 7 states I'm not connected to any networks when in fact I am connected to my wireless network??

I found a solution for (my version of) this problem.  My tray icon never showed the red X, but if I clicked on the icon, the popup showed a bigger icon with a red X, and said "Not connected".  As in your case, Internet worked, but I'm unable to setup a VPN connection because it insists on using a non-existent modem, obviously because I'm "not connected" (which I am). 

I monitored the processes running the NlaSvc and Netprofm services (using ProcMon), and noticed that both were denied read/write access to subkeys within the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList hierarchy.  

The processes were running as NetworkService and LocalService, respectively, so I tried adding full access for these service accounts to the entire subkey mentioned above.  Notice that permissions are not automatically inherited in the registry, so you may need to explicitly "replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object".

Within seconds, Network and Sharing Center tells me I'm connected to my domain.  Yay!
A reboot was required to fix the tray icon and its popup.

However, I'm still unable to add my VPN connection.

I'm interested in hearing from you guys if your registries miss the same permissions?  If so, Windows 7 must have a bug somewhere with misaligned service permissions/rights.

This sounds like a feature enabled in that particular progarm and without more details about the program perhaps it will be diffcult to comment. The name of the program should be provided at the minimum to see who is familiar with it. Also, this might be a security featue that can only be disabled with admin right. In some cases that is done on purpose to let everybody know they are being watched.

Having trouble using Internet and never had a problem before. I moved to a different house.
Have a desktop and a antenna adapter to connect wirelessly. Wireless modem and cable internet with several computers connected wirelessly.
The problem: when connecting to network it says I am connected with great signal strength. But won't let me use Internet because it says "identifying" with a clock symbol. It just stays that way never letting me get on websites.
One time it did let me get on website after I guess it identified but after a short while the speed of the Internet got really slow and finally got to where it just stayed trying to load websites forever so basically wasn't able to use the Internet.

I'm having a problem connecting online. I have called cox and they say that my connection is just fine but when I go to access the internet and I sign on It pops up and says my firewall is not authorized. I have tried several different things. I am lost. I have been down for 3 weeks. I really don't want to spend the money for someone to come and tell me something really simple to fix it. Can anyone give me some suggestions.

A:Problem getting connected online.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:





Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Why would I need a powered USB hub?

There must be a purpose?

Problem I have: some USB add ons to hubs (non powered) will just stop working!!
Previously working fine - suddenly not recognised.

Is this to do with the hub not being powered and therefor taking too much resources from the PC??
Would my problems be solved if I got a powered USB hub?

Powered USB hubs: do they take a load off the PC in anyway?

By: Chris Tom
April 8,2002

SUNNYVALE, CA-APRIL 8, 2002 - AMD (NYSE- AMD) today announced the introduction of the Alchemy(tm) Au1100(tm) processor, targeting the non-PC mobile internet appliance market, such as web pads, telematics, and PDAs. Currently being sampled, the innovative Au1100 offers an industry-leading combination of high performance, low power and high integration.Click to expand...

Full story here.....I wonder how a PDA is gonna look with a SuperOrb on it ?? PDA article

A:AMD powered PDA's

Well its beyond me how you can post in the news forum and not notice the new news topics posted....

AMD to enter new markets, including handhelds/PDAs


About the Alchemy? Au1100? processor from AMD
When Alchemy Semiconductor, Inc. was acquired by AMD in February of this year, its product portfolio consisted of the Au1000 and Au1500? processors. The Au1000 processor is currently in production and the Au1500 processor is sampling, with production scheduled for the second quarter of 2002. The Au1100 processor builds upon the successful Alchemy Au1 core, which is based on a MIPS32? instruction set. Like the Au1000 and Au1500 processors, the Au1100 is a System-on-a-Chip (SOC). SOC is a processor that has a core around which there are a custom set of integrated memory controllers and industry standard communication interfaces. SOCs can be tailored for use in different information appliances, such as PDAs and web tablets.

A friend of mine had a power cut for 30 mins, and while that happened he was on his PC, when the power went off, obviously his pc went off as well. I asked him if he had a surge protector on there, he said no, and since the powercut his pc has never started up. it made no noises, no smells, just no power. basically no ones at home.

Has the power supply just gone, or is it a more serious problem

Any help would be great.

A:never powered up again

Has the power supply just gone, or is it a more serious problem Click to expand...

The power supply is most likely gone, although when a power supply gives up the ghost it can take other hardware with it. Try disconnecting all the drives and booting, if it doesn't boot replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope everything else is okay.

A:Powered USB HUB

when the computer shuts down ,the light indicating a usb is plugged in should go off

yes you can connect other devices to the hub

try the hub plugged into a different usb port on the computer

usually when the computer will not boot with usb plugged in it usually means one of the usb is faulty,not necessarily the

Hello, last night, I was having problems with my computer overheating while playing video games, and then I remembered, when it over heats, to make sure all dust is cleaned from your computer. So, therefore, this morning when I woke up, I took some q-tips, and proceeded to clean my computers fan, and RAM chip bus. Then, when I tried turing it back on, it wouldn't boot up. My OS would not boot up, and nothing would show on my screen. I checked for anything I must have unpluged, and re checked everything, but it's still not powering up. Does anyone have any suggestions? I think it has something to do with my RAM chip bus. SOmething musta burnt out. Any ideas would be perfect.

A:Seems like something isn't being powered up..

Qtips, and the motions of cleaning with the use of them, can introduce static electricity.
Go back to basics... the most fundamental setup you can create... power supply, video graphics port or card, one memory module, and a floppy disk with MSDOS or Windows 98 Boot/Startup, or if you have no hard drive, a boot to a CD-ROM such as Windows 98 or Windows ME. Boot to SAFE MODE if possible.
Does it boot? If not, you know you may have a problem. So change the optical drive, and try again./
If it does boot, change memory modules and try again. Still working?
Keep on adding one component at a time... then change to the hard drive, removing the discs from the floppy or opitcal drive.
Keep toying with the system to get something to boot, still keeping it as simple as you possibly can.
Progressively change and test. You can learn a lot in the process.

Seriously doubt its a power supply issue. RAM uses very little power in comparison to other things.

Sound like its a RAM type issue, they just will not play together.

I just got a Rosewill 7 port hub (Model: RHUB-310W). It has its own power supply and I was wondering if I actually need it plugged in or if it will work otherwise. I am planning to have a mouse and 3 external hdds attached permanently and maybe a flash drive, camera, and an mp3 player plugged into it intermittently.

The external hdds have their own power supply but all else don't.

Will I break the hub, my computer, or my peripherals if I don't plug it in? I unerstand if I don't, then the hub will draw its power from the computer, will it be enough for everything I mentioned?

Thanks for any input.
Happy new year!

im making myself a sort of NAS box, but without the NAS for now lol

I will be mounting 4 3.5" HDD's in a hot swap box im making, and converting them to usb. For backing up purposes, without RAID.

Instead of having 4 usb cables coming out, i though about building a powered usb hub inside, and having just the one cable come out.

Just wondering if theres any part of my plan that ive not thought about!

A:How many HDD run off powered HUB?

Um...even if this works, how would your computer be able to address 4 different disks over a single USB cable? Short of writing your own transport protocol and special drivers to implement it, I don't see this happening....

I've been using a USB-powered hd to transfer files between my computer and media player. All of a sudden my computer won't see it anymore. The media player still sees it and my friend's computer running XP sees it, but mine won't. I've done "Search for new hardware" but got nothing.

A:Win 7 Won't See USB-Powered HD

It could be that on the computer that doesn't see it, Windows has simply failed to assign a drive letter to it.
This is not uncommon with external hard drives, even when the drive was previously assigned a drive-letter.

If that is the case, it's a simple fix.

Plug the drive in.
Now go to Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Computer Management.
Click on Disk Management in the left pane.

In the right-pane, all the connected drives are represented by a horizontal ribbon.
Look for a ribbon that's the same size as your external drive but has no name.
Right-click it and choose "Change drive letters & paths".
Click "Change".
Pick a drive-letter from the drop-down box, then click 'OK'.

So, this is not a major issue but kind of annoying. Recently I have noticed that the system tray icon for the wireless network always has that little red X and if I open the Network and Sharing Center it says "You are not currently connected to any networks." When I click "See Full Map" it shows a line from my PC to the Router but the line from my router to the internet has a red X.

The thing is, I am connected to the internet. I can go online just fine. Any ideas?

A:network system tray icon shows not connected but I am connected

Hello Serg, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sometimes a simple restart of the PC will sort the network icon for you.

If not, then a quick disable and enable of the wireless network usually will toggle it back with the correct icon.

Hope this helps,

A:Problem staying connected to the internet.

If your connection works fine in all the other places, don`t start making radical changes to your system, you will compound the problem. Move the pc around, make sure there are no obstructions between you and the Access Point. Put the pc right under it if you have to. Does it happen at certain times of the day ? Late at nite ? Early in the morning ? Keep testing to narrow down the problem.

In one of my computer at work, I am able to open all sites except those related to Google (gmail, Google map etc). Sometimes works, but from that if I select ?Mail?, it does not work.

The same thing works from my colleagues computers and also at my home.

Does not seem to be network problem, as all other sites open. Also there is no Firewall issue as it works from other people?s computer.

Any help?


A:Problem opening anything connected with Google

Check with administrator, make sure they did not create a policy to restrict you from using Google. Then Edit your Hosts file. Browse to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc open the Hosts file with Notepad. Delete all lines after the words localhost in the Example:

# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host localhost

today I've noticed while playing CS GO, that my ping would raise up to a thousand or even more. I've checked every little thing and it did not seem that the computer is causing the problem neither the Cs Go server.

Strangely, after the 2nd computer went off, the internet was normal again. So I checked it to be sure.

When the 2nd computer for example has a launched video on youtube, my ping would go crazy, when it was off, my ping was back to normal. Does anyone know, what might cause this strange problem? Thanks for help in advance.

A:Problem with 2 computers connected to a router

Hi Goodfeller, and welcome to TSG.

Streaming video is data intensive and could be using up most of your available Internet connection bandwidth, resulting in longer ping times for you and buffering issues for the person with the video feed.

I recently been having connection issues for the past few weeks. I'll be able to connect to the internet in my household for a few hours and then all of a sudden ill lose connection. I eventually get a yellow warning icon covering my internet bars icon. My internet works fine again once i reset the router and modem, but i will get the same problem again after an hour or 2. I'm starting to think it's a problem with my modem or with my router. I use a Motorola modem and a Lynksys router if that helps. Also it's not just my computer, my xbox doesn't connect online either when this happens. Anybody have any suggestions. It's really annoying having to unplug the router and modem every few hours.

A:Connected but no internet access problem

Hi there, As a network engineer, I can only think of two problems:

Since you mentioned that not only your laptop, but your x-box drops the connection, the problem lies either with the modem, router or your internet service provider.

Now let me explain:
1) It is possible that due to over heating, modems start dropping packets (I have experienced this)
2) you may have trouble with the linksys router.
3) your modem loses connectivity probably because you were disconnected from the ISP.

to narrow down this problem there are a few things that you can do -
wait until the same problem occurs again. Now, go to the command prompt and ping, record the messages,
in the command prompt, ping your router's IP, record the results.

Also, without resetting the router and modem, try using an ethernet cord, do both the ping tests again.
Paste the results here. This will help us identify the problem.

I recently purchased a Belkin USB 2.0 7port hub for my laptop. I have a Creative Sound Blaster USB (about 2 years old) which works fine when plugged directly into my Belkin PCMIA USB 2.0 Card, but whenever I plug it into the hub it comes up with an error. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the card to no avail, but theres still two "USB Audio" icons with exclamation marks beside them in device manager. There is no power issue as the hub is self-powered. There is no resource tab in properties to check if there's a conflict. It could be my lack of processor speed, but it works fine when plugged directly into the laptop's USB or the PCMIA card. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

A:Sound card problem when connected to hub

Some USB devices will not work on a hub, some require a controller port.

It's to do with USB enumeration, unsure if this affects your USB audio card/USB hub but your description of the problem tends to fit.

I wanted to start a thread on this topic as I'm not sure anybody else has seen a connection with this issue Yesterday I was able to successfully remove a virus from my father in law's computer that we have been after for some time The problem began a couple of months ago when Spywareguard kept notifying us that something was attempting to change the Internet Explorer home page It was being Software? Connected Problem Virus Hp With changed from www google com to http qus hpwis com I disallowed the change and thought the problem was solved A couple of days ago my father-in-law called me and stated he was having major problems with his computer running XP home with SP It had been slowed to a crawl and we could barely get the dial-up networking box to appear so as to get on the Internet He had been running Avast antivirus and I noticed his Avast icon was not in the system tray I opened Windows Explorer and checked the Virus Problem Connected With Hp Software? program files only to find that the program files Virus Problem Connected With Hp Software? for his security software antivirus and other anti-spyware had been either erased or altered The Avast exe program had been changed to Avast E E I knew we were dealing with some type of viral application killer I ran some scans from some antispyware I had on CD and Microsoft Antispyware advised something had hijacked the hosts file However this virus locked up MS Antispyware before Virus Problem Connected With Hp Software? it could remove the thing I then ran some other scans but nothing seemed to be able to find this thing I then ran HijackThis and it showed the hijacker under the R and R sections as http qus hpwis com and http srch-qus hpwis com And so I copied down the info and that evening proceeded to go online from my own computer to see if I could find out how to get rid of whatever this was I entered the URL in Google and looked at approximately posted HijackThis logs where people had this listed as a hijacker The common denominator among them all was that WITHOUT EXCEPTION every person who had this little quot friend quot also had HP software or hardware of some kind Also the quot hp quot part in the hijack address made me a little suspicious Anyway to make a long story somewhat shorter yesterday I ran a stand-along version of McAfee in DOS after booting into Safe Mode and it hunted the virus down and killed it McAfee identified the virus as a quot KillApp quot That was true as it had quot killed quot most of the security software by eating away at their program files The file itself was called quot Terminator exe quot and was in the following path C hp bin terminator exe After the McAfee antivirus killed it I booted back into normal mode and it was night and day Also having Zone Alarm firewall installed we had noticed previously that several of the HP application were attempting to quot call out quot after we got online And so I don't exactly know what's going on but there is definitely some connection between this qus hpwis com hijacker and the HP software Whether this virus is something that downloaded while the HP software was attempting to obtain updates or came through some other channel is unknown At this point since I have not seen anyone else notice the common denominator with all of these HijackThis logs and the prevelance of HP software involved in this problem I wanted to give others some food for thought Also maybe this is something that really needs to be looked into by some people with much more technical skill than I possess At any rate I set Zone Alarm to block all communications by the HP programs Personally I do not see the need for them to be sending information back to the quot mother ship quot anyway If a person needs an update etc they can always go to the company website and get what they need I really don't like any of my applications doing things behind my back In another forum I was reading that the hijacker might have something to do with the Backwe...

A:Virus Problem Connected With Hp Software?

This is a known issue with HP and Compaq computers. For example in compaq presarios you may see: dont this is a virus per se, but rather part of their update software or other software that gets installed. Whenever I see these in logs I always fix. Why do they hijackthis your IE to those pages? So they can track who is using what. Those links connect to a HP Server, log the instance of your opening IE, and then redirecting you to yahoo.For the search pages, they use their own branded yahoo search. WHy ? They probably get paid by Yahoo or other type of kickback.The calling back is probably a program checking for updates.

have you checked that there is not a DHCP service for the wireless access point - IF DHCP is turned off on the 2nd router that ALL the IPS should be from router 1

if you have assigned static IPs to all the devices and then they should be controlled by router 1

But you say router 1 DHCP is enabled ?

The issue I currently have is that once I plug it in, everything goes normally, except the fan starts running full blast until it's unplugged. Pushing the power button does nothing. Any suggestions as to a solution? Is my power supply dead? Motherboard damaged?

So, today I was uninstalling some programs to make room on my hard drive. There was a program there I hadn't seen before, called "Yahoo! Powered". It had no publisher, and no icon, sounded weird, and I didn't install it, so I did a quick search to see if it was trouble, and apparently it is. Not entirely sure how to get rid of it, but it's apparently been on my computer for 21 days now. 
I've never had to get rid of any viruses before (I'm sure my other computers had loads of them, but I never bothered), but now that I've spent over a thousand dollars building a pretty nice computer, I'm not okay with having viruses...
So where do I start in getting rid of it?

Close your browser and double click on this icon on your desktop:

You will then see the screen below, click on the Scan button (as indicated), accept any prompts that appear and allow it to run, it may take several minutes to complete, when it is done, you will get a message saying "PENDING" , Ignore that & click on the Clean button, accept any prompts that appear and allow the system to reboot.

Hi. I am having problems with USB devices freezing or not being powered at all through my USB ports. I have been looking for an a/c powered hub (USB 2.0 is fine) to power game controllers and the like (such as the Razer Tartarus/ Saitek X52) - they freeze up when I use them together via the PC's USB ports.

But I can't seem to find one that's recommended. Nothing will ever get 100% 5* reviews of course, but comments (on such as 'this device burnt out my motherboard', 'lasted six months then stopped working' and the like are not to be taken lightly! So any recommendations welcome.


A:USB hub, a/c powered. Recommendations please?

Only obliquely addressing your issue, but I've been through the same issues in the past and found out that it was really driver issues not a lack of 5V power. With a high-end rig like yours, I suspect you are solving the wrong problem - just my 2?. Have you tried a typical cheapo powered USB block that runs off your PC?

Thanks for the help in advanced - I've been through the control panel for a bit now & haven't figured it out.

A:Invision Powered help please

This depends on exactly what the "hacker" (most of them are mere script kiddies) has done. Could you post a link?

Notebook does not power. The HP service in Ukraine (company A-Service, Kiev), said that the the issue is in main processor and the motherboard should be replaced, but HP has declined to send it to Ukraine. What should I do, to repair my laptop? Can I buy a motherboard abroad, if your service can not do it?

A:Notebook does not powered

Where is abroad? Where are you now (country)?

I am trouble shooting my Magicjack and one of the items it recommends is to plug into a powered USB hub because the computer usb may not be providing enough power for the phone handset. I would like to instead put in a "2-Port USB Rear Panel Bracket Host Adapter" Shown in picture. Is this the same thing as a powered usb hub? Will it give me enough power.

Also does this plug into one of those connector ends like plugs into my hard drive or CD drive?

Side note: I am using an old computer with 4 USB's all next to each other and all being used.

You don't indicate the problems you are having, but it is most likely because the PC is infected as indicated by O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [lphcrh2j0et9f] C:\Windows\system32\lphcrh2j0et9f.exe
Removing this item will NOT necessarily remove all infections, so I am asking for a Gold Shield to review the log.

As well, I notice you have Uniblue's Registry Booster installed.

You should immediately uninstall this piece of slimeware while your PC is still running. Regsitry Cleaners to nothing positive for a PC and may well be the reason that your R/S no longer works!

I got a 2.5" external HDD enclosure from a place called to use with a Hitachi Travelstar 40GB HDD. I was under the notion that these 2.5" USB2.0 drives are powered via the USB cable. The enclosure also has the Firewire port and The firewire cable powers up the HDD, but when I use the USB2.0 cable, I need to use the DC power cord that came with it. I wrote to their tech support and this is what they replied with:

if your drive is rated at less than 500ma than it will power from usb specification is posted online

I don't really understand the comment. Am I supposed to look for the 500ma on the HDD or on the HDD enclosure specs.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

My motherboard is Asus H170 Pro , and when i reboot none of the usb (usb 2 or 3) are working. When i make a reset (or power off from button) and open windows again, the usb are working.

Even the devices where are connected permanently (keyboard-mouse) are not working after reboot.

I have try to connect a flash drive with led, and the led is not lit, so there's no current in the usb.

Is there anything that i can do or my mobo is deflective?

Thanks in advanced

Why do you believe it's a driver issue?

If you have another computer handy, you may want to try the USB hub over there for a while.

Hi everyone.

When I have finished with my computer I always power down completely(switch off at the socket).With this procedure I have no problem booting,but if I shut down the computer leaving the power still on,it will not reboot until I switch off at the socket.
All I get is a whirring sound from the hardrive.

A:No boot unless powered down.

I would try another socket, preferably one that is not on a switch

Hey folks Well big problem here I ve built a new rig and was doing a reinstallation of Windows and I d left my wife in charge of making sure its set to install to the correct HDD She d made a mistake and set it to install on my internal Backup drive which is a Western Digital Caviar SE SATA drive which meant it was to be formatting... powered while off HDD formatted Mistake When she realized she did it wrong during the reformat she restarted the computer HDD powered off while formatting... BIGGER Mistake And now I ve tried see if I could reformat it and possibly recover some data with a partition tool of some kind however dont even think I can get it to show up on Windows even after checking and trying to go to Disk Management to initialize it it doesnt show up It only shows up sometimes when I go to the BIOS after that mishap I ve had it for years with absolutely no problems so is it a possiblility that this mistake may have killed it Any guidance would help in what to do next nbsp

A:HDD powered off while formatting...

You can maybe pull the drive and use a usb sata/ide connector and see what you can salvage.And then reinstall if you can.

A:Is it worth to buy an AC-Powered USB Hub?

One of the first things to do there would be plugging the usb keyboard directly into a port on the rear of the case on the main board itself. Most keyboards especially any illuminated models will tend to pull heavier then other usb devices.

As for a small 4 port usb 2.0 hub I've been finding out one made by CyberPower initially found in a retail chain has been quite reliable for a number of other devices including usb flash drives, web cams, usb head sets, usb mics, etc. that won't break the bank! The prices will be different wherever you find one however running up from $18- upto and even over $30-US depending where you can order from.

You can see what this looks like at CyberPower USB Hub 4-Port 2.0 with AC Adapter - 4 x 4-pin Type A Female USB 2.0 USB USB (Upstream) - External CPH420P - Product and Price Information at NextDayPC

A shopping site like will often see various prices running higher depending on the vendor. NEW CyberPower USB Hub 4-Port 2.0 with AC Adapter (CPH420P ): Computers & Accessories

CyberPower also offers a larger 7 port model seen at newegg for $30US. NeweggBusiness - CyberPower CP-H720P High-speed Hub

I wouldn't advise charging cameras or cell phones regularly when plugged into a hub however. The better option for charging when not using the ac charging adapter for any hand helds is plugging into a port directly or only temporarily charging by usb only being the best move! The charging tends to warm things up!
