Not All ports in 4-ports USB hub are working

August 28, 2016 at 02:17:32
Specs: Windows 7, Pentnium dual core
I do have a 4 port USB hub. In which 4 ports were working concurrently in windows XP. When it comes to later versions like windows 7, Vista etc. Only any one of the 4 ports work but all at the same time are not working.
Someone suggest why this happening with my USB hub

If you mean a plug in hub then they can easily overload the USB power. Try using another port. Otherwise it might be time for a new plug-in.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is this problem occurring with the same computer and same hardware on the hub?

Do you have a laptop? What devices are connected to the hub?

Is this a powered hub with is own power supply or does it work only off USB power?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Is the hub rated for the possibly faster USB port speeds the vista and 7 computers may have?

You didn't answer my question in #2 above. I will rephrase. Did you just upgrade from WinXP to Windows 7 using all the same hardware?

If so, did you install the motherboard chipset drivers for Windows 7?

Yeah, this may be hardware differences between several computers and not a windows issue. So are the XP, vista and 7 computers all the same one because you upgraded or are they different computers? Maybe the xp computer had slightly higher amperage from the USB ports thus allowing multiple devices to be powered from one port.

If that's the problem a powered hub is the solution--a powered hub compatible with the USB port speeds of the newer computers.
