  1. Strange usb stick/keyboard issue


    I'm running windows 10 version 1902 build 18362.657

    my pc has 2 usb 3.0 ports in the front

    the first usb port has my usb keyboard plugged in, the second one, I use for usb sticks

    I have 2 usb sticks, one of them, when plugged in has no issues

    the other usb stick, when plugged in, makes my usb keyboard stop working. IT ONLY happens with this particular usb stick

    when the usb stick is plugged in the back of the pc, the keyboard works fine. The keyboard only stops working when this particular usb stick is plugged beside the keyboard at the front on the usb 3.0 port.

    I tried various formats, exfat, fat32, ntfs, but I still get the same issue

    The attached photo shows the top usb stick which works with no issues, and the bottom usb stick, which stops the keyboard from working

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time

    :)

    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

    USB memory stick issues

    I have a very strange problem with a Lexar 128GB USB.
    When I plug it into my PC (windows 10 pro) it shows up in File Explorer and I can copy files from it but I cannot write to it.
    The USB stick works perfectly in my laptop, ie read/write with no problem
    The USB port in my PC is fine because I can use it to read/write to any other USB
    In my PC when I run the Disc Management app the USB appears and is listed as working properly
    In Device Manager the USB is listed as ‘working properly’ and when I search for new drivers Windows reports that I have the most current driver.
    With the PC if I attempt to format it after a long time a dialog display appears that says that Windows is unable to format it. In my laptop I can format it with no issues.
    Can somebody tell me what is going on.
    Thanks in advance

    External USB Keyboard Glitches & Hibernate Issue

    Hi Aman,

    Usually, a corrupted power plan can cause strange issues with power and sleep settings. If you are using a custom power plan which you have created, delete it and use one of the built-in standard power plans. See if it resolves the issue. If
    the issue persists, the problem could be related to the display drivers. We suggest installing the latest version of the display drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    Regarding the issue with your external keyboard, have you tried to isolate the issue by using a different keyboard? Also, have you tried running the
    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter? If you haven't done so, we suggest that you run the troubleshooter to scan your computer, identify the problems, and attempt to fix the issues automatically. You may refer to the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R and type Control Panel.
    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar and click on
      Troubleshooting
      .
    • Click on Hardware and Devices.
    • Follow the steps from the wizard to run the troubleshooter.

    Let us know how it turns out.
