  1. PSA: Don’t put your lightning cables into your USB ports


    I tried to see what happens if a lightning cable (a cable to charge an iPhone) is plugged in via the Lightning connector rather than the USB end.

    Upon doing that the computer got killed by the cable. On the first restart it gave me a BSOD before booting up completely.

    Then I wanted to see if I could get it to occur again so I did the exact same thing and tried to see what would kill it. It’s the bottom area where some metal is exposed that allows the cable to kill the computer but it never Blue screened upon that restart. Not to mention it can kill your lightning cable

    Click next/OK as required to complete installation. Repeat the steps for all Intel USB devices. Finally click on each USB root device and press DEL to delete it, reply YES when asked. After deleting all USB root devices restart the computer.

    I hope this is detailed enough...
