|Thank you, I will try those now. I have just tried an externally powered USB device (an external hard drive) and that seems to have no problems. So it sounds like a power issue. Just not sure if this is a physical issue or something I can fix myself. |
It's strange. A usb device (ie. mouse) will work fine when I plug it in, but if I move the usb connection the slightest bit it stops working then will work again. Every time the connection is moved it plays up. I would think it was a loose connection but it is happening with all three usb ports and they all started playing up at the same time. They are all in properly. It also happens when only one device is connected so it can't be using too much power for the laptop surely. It is a relatively new laptop too.
Anyway, I will try your advice. Thank you!
