Hardware Drivers :: Windows 8 - USB 2.0 Stop Working But Will Charge Mobile Phone
Aug 20, 2013
I have problem with USB 2.0. The problem first begin with app called (zadig.exe) under options i click List all devices.
I think by mistake i change of the drives after that the USB 2.0 stop working. I have USB 3.0 and its fine. The USB 2.0 can charge my phone and the mouse can work in BIOS ONLY. After going to Win 8 is stop working but it will charge my phone.
In any case, as the topic title says, some keys on my laptop occasionally stop working for some time, before returning back to normal. Sometimes simply pressing the key several times makes it work, sometimes holding it pressed for ten seconds or so works... Sometimes neither of these works. Occasionally, the key starts working it I press it in rapid succession with a key that does work. For example, pressing I, a non-working key, instantly after pressing J, which works perfectly. Sometimes I simply just randomly press keys on my keyboard until the non-working keys start working again. Backspacing seems to make it easier for them to go back to 'non-working state', although this may be just my imagination.
When any one of the keys that sometimes stop working stops working, none of those keys works. And when one starts working again, all of them start working. Although they may return back to non-working state right away. Although it might be just coincidence, and it doesn't actually work that way.
An incomplete list of the keys that occasionally stop working: (Left) Ctrl, I, O, 2, 7.
There are others, I believe, at least one more number, but I have no way to check until they stop working. And at the time of typing this post, they seem to be working strangely well.Also, the keys are (almost?) always in the 'non-working state' when the laptop wakes from sleep mode and I have to input the password. Luckily, it offers the On-Screen Keyboard option, which, by the way, works perfectly.
And it happens only when I boot the computer up and find that neither my keyboard or mouse are working then I plug them into front (2) avaialable usb ports and they work fine....
And then If I try to uninstall universal bus controllers by device manager then my keyboard + mouse stops working (obviously) then I shutdown via power button .... plug keyboard+mouse again back to rear usb ports... and they start working till few days...
I'm on windows 8.1 x64 with latest updates and all latest drivers etc...
The funny thing is this problem is with me since last 2 years or so... and I changed 3 Power supplies since then and luckily one motherboard, changed 3 mouses and 1 keyboard, 1 Hard disk too
even if they are plugged in rear ports I get "USB Disconnection" sound sometimes....
now thinking about buying a bluetooth keyboard + mouse but there are other things that needed to be plug in into rear ports... or should I go for an internal USB 2.0 PCI card ?
I have a problem with keyboard and mouse. Every day when i playing some games my keyboard randomly stop working (backlight on keyboard still light but LED on num lock is off and buttons don't work) after few seconds my mouse also stop working. Plugin to another USB doesn't work. Only when i disconnect keyboard and connect mouse to other USB mouse work. After restarting system all works fine. Im sure keyboard and mouse is good (testing it on laptop when this happens and its work normal). I have updated drivers and BIOS.
PC spec.: Windows 8.1 AMD Phenom II x4 940 Gigabyte ga MA790x UD4P GTX 660 2xHDD+1SSD
I've just upgraded to brand new HTC 8X Windows Phone 8 but I've had to continue using iPhone as my Audi Car Phone System does not see contacts in its Phone Book when connected via bluetooth with my new phone. Phone book access works fine with iPhone4
Well mine certainly does.. When it quits I simply turn the mouse off and then on again. Doesn't figure as it worked in Windows 8 but, it refuses to work correctly in Windows 8.1. And more than that my mouse is a Microsoft Sculpt Touch mouse.
I am unable to find any option to stream audio to my pc. In windows 7 was able to do it by just pairing my phone with the pc. But in windows 8 im just able to see these options. (Screenshot) no option to use pc as headset or to play audio unlike in windows 7. I am using HTC sensation to connect.
I have had this windows 8 laptop for half a year now. I didn't have any problems with it until AFTER the 30 day warranty expired. My issue is the right parenthesis key, the underscore key, and the question mark key stop working every now and then and it is getting more and more frequent. I haven't done anything to this laptop at all, It hasn't been dropped, hit, spilled upon or anything.
I'm trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy S III to my new Asus LX302L via bluetooth.Both have bluetooth vers. 4 and I have successfully connected other units to my phone earlier but now it doesn't work.
I can "see" both units and they are linked together via password but that's it. After I linked them together, the status information on the computer says "Not connectet" for the phone. The same information is the phone saying about the computer.All drivers are up to date.
I want to use my phone as a remote using "Unified remote" and I also want to play music via the phone out to the computer speakers. This I have been able to do with my old computer (windows 7) but now it doesn't work.
for whatever reason windows defender decided to stop working e couple of days ago... whether a quick scan or full scan it stops about 2/3 the way through and reports the following error. i have no other av installed, no remnants of another av on my system, scannow shows no problems, dism health test checks out just fine, etc., etc. also, fwiw, there is nothing in defender's history files, all clean... as a result windows defender has an orange format, instead of green, which is apparently the default color scheme when it is not able to protect the system adequately.
I have a samsung galaxy s3 plugged into a front usb slot on my cyberpower pc, running windows 8. For charging. My previous computer never had any issues but this one (which is brand new) is having a lot of annoying problems with it.
It has no issue detecting the phone, but any time I touch the phone while it's plugged in. The computer will repeatedly (7-10 times) play the dismounting hardware sound. Followed by several mounting sounds. Over and over for a little while.
I thought maybe it was a connection problem with the cord. But it happens without any interference with the cord. All I have to do is press any button on the phone once and it will mount and unmount the phone obsessively. Which will also open and close the folder for the phone's files, interrupting everything I'm doing at the time.
When I've been running certain programs on my computer, I keep getting the message, program has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. This has happened to me in Internet Explorer when I try to play movies, Windows Media Player, Norton Internet Security and when I try to run Windows Experience index.
Some programs wont even open. My computer has been running fine since I purchased it 8 months ago. This started happening after a windows update a couple of weeks ago. I've refreshed windows 8 twice, ran a full system virus scan, ran malwarebytes and it found nothing. I also tried sfc /scannow and used dism /online /cleanup-image /restore health to fix component store corruption and fix corrupt system files and also tried gwscan from Hirens boot cd. I generated a system health report and this is what the report came up with:
My Windows 8 laptop for a couple of months now hasn't been able to be used without being taken off the charger. When I click on the battery icon, it says that battery 1 is on 1% whilst battery 2 is 'not present'. It started on 60% power when this started but has gradually been decreasing every time I turn the computer off, until it is on 1%. I've tried changing the power plan but this hasn't worked...
I uninstalled Intel Smart Connect Technology after experiencing a BSOD that seemed to be caused by a related driver. When the uninstallation tool asked if I wanted to restart now/later, I chose to restart now, which was followed by another BSOD.
Now I can boot into Windows just fine but neither my mouse or my keyboard are working. They work in the BIOS but as soon as Windows is loaded, they stop functioning. I've tried resetting my CMOS but this did not solve the problem. I've also checked that they are enabled in the BIOS.
I would try a system restore but Windows 8 doesn't seem to allow me to boot into repair mode without actually going into Windows first, but I can't do it from Windows because of my malfunctioning peripherals.
I can't use the Windows 8 installation disc to repair because as soon as the message that says "Press any key to continue" comes up, my keyboard stops working. However, it seems I can force the PC to boot from the CD which after a bit of a wait gets me to the Windows installation screen, with my only option being to completely reinstall Windows.
I am able to enter Windows Repair Mode with the Installation disc, but there is no option for Safe Mode and when I attempt to System Restore, I get this error message: "To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore. Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select System Restore."
Trying Windows 8 at work and bought new Samsung 700t tablet. Windows 8 works fine with local user (linked to live id) and all our software including Symantec Endpoint 12.1.2. As soon as I join to domain (server 2008) and reboot the live tiles no longer function. Have total reset several times and tried refresh and restore points. My guess is that has to be default behavior of Win 8 GPO compared to 2008 domain GPO. We are very plain on our policies and so far have not found anything on local computer or GPO that can correct issues.
So recently the sound on my machine will randomly stop working- no apps produce sound, Chrome doesn't, not even the system sounds. I posted about this on another forum which told me to check for hardware changes in the device manager, but that doesn't seem to be working, or at least not consistently.
From what I can tell, the sound won't cut out if it's playing. It will only stop when there's nothing playing at all. After that, it just comes back when it feels like it it seems. I've tried updating my sound drivers and everything, nothing is muted, so I'm at a loss.
I purchased a new computer in the last few days, pre-installed Windows 8. I was having the odd error message where Chrome would stop working and reload. Or sometimes an error message saying my computer would restart. They are different messages:
Memory Management IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Special Pool Detected Memory Corrupt
I downloaded all updates for Windows 8, then updated to 8.1 and downloaded all but one update available (Bing Desktop). I am still getting these BSOD. Sometimes in Chrome, sometimes in Steam, and sometimes randomly
I've run the Memory diagnostic tool in Windows, and it found no errors. I've attached the SF Diagnostics folder which was created.
I am running windows 8 pro wmc on my HP laptop. One month ago I have bought a new battery. From last one week, when I start my laptop it shows that "plugged it, not charging". When I shut down down, it started charging the battery. After a full charge, my laptop performs good and battery worked for almost more than 2 hours.
My computer was beeping on start up and would start beeping randomly while the computer was on.Sometimes it would beep non-stop and I would have to disable the internal speaker. I updated the bios and that fixed the problem, but my webcam driver and internal mic driver isn't working anymore.
Every time I need to do something on my external hard drive, it has to spin up. I'm using an SSD for my primary HD, so waiting on an external HD to spin up makes me have to wait 4-5 seconds for something to load when it's on my external -- I'm not used to waiting.
Is there a way I can make sure my external HD continues to spin regardless of I'm using it or not? I also notice that I have to wait on it to spin up when I'm shutting down or booting up.
I have a Canon printer-fax and several other printers installed. Listing printers shows the Canon as one printer, both the fax and printer and when I click on it, I have a choice of either the printer or fax. I chose the printer as my default printer. That works for a while, and then the default printer reverts to the last one on my list, in my case Quicken PDF. There does not seem to be any event causing this to change.
How can I keep my selected printer as the default?
Latest Java updates (64bits and 32bits) work for a while then stop with no warning. Be it HTML chat rooms -not loading- or embedded videos or whatever else. That is on ALL browsers not just IE. Opera, Chrome, Firefox....they all stop working.
(on a strange note, trying to play an embedded video in Opera will result in Opera downloading it rather than playing it)
I shut down all anti viruses, turned off the windows firewall. Uninstalled and reinstalled javas. Even went as far as a full system refresh after which Java again worked for a while then stopped again.
Basically what i want it to do is when i connect to WiFi i would like it to turn off the mobile broadband adapter, and once its off the WiFi to re-connect to the mobile. if this is possible i cant find anything about it anywhere ...
I am having windows 8 phone. The mobile is not responding sometimes. MEans the touch is not working sometimes. It is not responding. And another issue is my music files are getting multiplied and each file has 6 duplicate copy now.
I tried to connect my mobile device to Windows 8 in order to transfer some pictures and neither my laptop can find my mobile neither my mobile to find my laptop device...my mobile is discoverable and i don't know why it can't find it.
Ok now i bought this usb dongle today and installed it successfully on windows 8 for 4 hrs trying to make it connect my android phone to the pc using bluetooth but in vain. It worked one time but went of in an instant. The drivers all have been installed correctly, and i have tried reinstalling with all the drivers available but it never worked.
I have a notebook with first generation i7 processor. It comes with windows 7 home premium pre installed and I would like to upgrade it to windows 8 or 8.1. But Intel's latest HD Graphics v126.96.36.199.2993 (2/19/2013) is only compatible with windows 7 as they mentioned. Also my manufacturer was stop providing drivers for the latest operating systems after windows 7 for my model. Can I still update my O/S with the above driver?
